Migrate email between two GMail accounts

    If you need to copy or transfer all your SSIS emails to a different GMail account, there is an easy way to do it with POP3 access and GMail's "POP Mail Fetcher" feature.

    1. Enable POP for the original account

    First, login to your old account and go to Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP. In the POP Download section choose to Enable POP for all mail.

    There is an additional option for what to do when the email is copied over: Keep email in the Inbox, Mark as read, Archive, or Delete it.

    We recommend the option "Archive SSIS copy", but this choice is up to you. Be careful with the option to Delete!

    2. You may need to Enable less-secure Apps for that account (old account)

    Select "Turn on"


    3. Then go here (still at your old account):


    4. Configure the Mail Fetch in the destination account

    Now it's time to import all of those messages into your new email account. Log out of your old account and then log in to your new Gmail account.

    This time go to Settings -> Accounts. In the Check mail from other accounts (using POP3) section, click on Add a POP3 mail account you own.

    First enter your old email address:

    Second step is to configure the details of the original account:

    • In Username, make sure you enter your complete email address.
    • POP server: pop.gmail.com
    • Port: 995
    • Always use a secure connection (SSL) needs to be ON.
    • You can choose a label for the incoming messages. We recommend that you do!


    Now it's just a matter of waiting. Gmail will use the POP access you set up on your old account to download every single message in your old account to your new one. When it's done, all your old emails will be available and searchable in your new email address.
