Download Emails from your email account to Gmail

If you recently switched to Gmail, you can transfer your old emails from your other account.

Important: If you use Gmail for work or school and don't see the import mail option, then your administrator may have disabled this feature.


Step 1: On your computer, open your Gmail

Step 2: In the top right, click Settings icon and then click "See All Settings".

Step 3: Click the "Accounts and Import" or "Accounts" tab in the top navigation bar.

Step 4: In the second section, click "Import Mail and Contacts".

Step 5: Follow the instructions to sign into your account by entering your email account and password. Click “Continue”.

Step 6: Select your import option for your email. You can choose from either "Import mail" or "Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server"

Step 7: Click "Start Import".


Your messages then being to be imported. It may take several hours (sometimes up to 2 days) before you start to see imported messages. You can then close the window and keep using Gmail or even log out and close your browser – we'll continue importing your mail and/or contacts in the background.

To check the status of your import, look under Settings > Accounts and Import.
