How to move or transfer email accounts from one ISP to another

Are you looking for a way to move your email account from Gmail to Outlook or from Yahoo to Gmail? Outside of the major email providers, if you’re still stuck with your university’s email address or an email from your local ISP like Cox or BellSouth, switching to Gmail, Yahoo, or Outlook.com is a good idea because you’re inside you will have a lot. more features, better security, and more support. Also, some colleges end up closing student email addresses after a while, so change them before you lose them all.

You can try to do a migration yourself and there are tons of tutorials available, but if you are unfamiliar with the technical details or don’t have the time, it may be better to use a third-party solution. So if you need to transfer your account information, emails, tasks, calendar items, address book and contacts, etc. to a new email provider, there is a paid service that can do this for you.

Notice: There was a service called TrueSwitch that was backed by Google and Yahoo and allowed you to switch between email providers for free, but it appears that the site and the service are no longer available.


You would think there would be more services to help people move their email between providers, but in reality there aren’t that many. YippieMove is now the only one offering this service that I could find online. With TrueSwitch gone, you will have to pay a small price if you want someone else to migrate your email. If you want to do it for free, you will have to try it yourself. For those folks, scroll down to where I’ve listed some great resources for migrating email yourself.

Basically, for a transfer i.e Cox to Gmail, you will have to pay $ 15. This includes transferring all emails from one account to another.

What I love about YippieMove is that it supports a host of email providers including colleges / universities, international providers, and annoying local ISPs like Comcast, Cox, etc. list of supporting providers.

Also, you can quickly check if YippieMove will work for you or not by checking if your email provider supports IMAP. If it only supports POP3, you cannot use YippieMove. The good thing is that even if your email provider is not on the list of supported providers, you will probably be able to migrate your email as long as IMAP is supported.

The site also offers a few guides and videos just to make the process even easier for you. It does not list all possible transfers, but the principle is roughly the same for all transfers. To get started, click on the Start now on the home page.

The process basically consists of three stages: from where, where and what to transfer. Go ahead and fill in your login details for the email provider you want to move first and click Next. Then enter the credentials of the email provider you are moving to and click Next.

Finally, on the last screen, you will be able to choose the folders you want to migrate. It will try to match the folders for you, but if there are any problems, you can manually change the destination folder.

It should be noted that the website does not give you an error message if you entered your login information incorrectly in the first two steps. When you get to step 3, it will be empty instead of listing the folders. In this case, please go back and retype your login information. Also, if you use two factors on either account, you will likely need to disable it to complete the transfer. You can optionally use an app password, but I haven’t tested it.

Finally, click Finish and the process will begin on your primary servers. Depending on the site, the entire process is usually completed within 24 hours. The main feature mentioned in the FAQ is the fact that YippieMove will keep the integrity of the original email during forwarding. This means that it will keep the sent date / time, attachments, read and unread status, etc.

You can then create an account and log in to see the status of the migration. YippieMove also claims that the credentials you enter on the site will be encrypted via SSL. The only problem that I don’t like is their policy of storing your data. If you look at the privacy policy it says they can store your credentials on their servers and it will be deleted within 60 days.

I don’t see any reason why they should keep their credentials for 60 days. My suggestion would be to use the service and then change your passwords for both email providers just to be safe.

  Bulb Boy Review

Overall, YippieMove is a legitimate service that seems to work fine for most people. I didn’t find any negative reviews or comments about the service online, so I guess most people were happy with it. For just $ 15 it’s worth a try, even if most of your emails are going to the new provider. If you have used the service, let us know about your experience in the comments. Enjoy!
