E-MAIL migration allows transferring all emails and, perhaps, other data from one email service to another. To do it, you need some IMAP migration tool that supports a standard EML file format for messages. Handy Backup provides such email migration tool for any IMAP mail servers, to transfer messages freely.

Please follow the instruction provided below for using Handy Backup as your email migration service. For this example, let us assume that you are using the Yahoo Mail account and migrate it to the Microsoft default email, using Handy Backup as Outlook migration tool.
Note: Do not make a mistake by referring to "Outlook migration" as email migration of Microsoft Outlook local content! In the context of this article, the "Outlook" is the Outlook.com mail service, not a local mailing and event-controlling utility.
Please do some things seemingly unrelated to Handy Backup before you start to use it as an email migration tool:
Please follow the next instruction:

Note: Here you must use the advanced wizard mode. Check the appropriate box on Step 1.
The next video example will show how easily and flexibly you can make an automatic email migration task with Handy Backup. This example will migrate Gmail messages to Yahoo!Mail, but you can freely select any other IMAP-supporting email service both as source or destination for email migration.
An advice: You can use the dedicated Gmail plug-in instead of common E-mail for accessing Google Mail accounts for IMAP migration. You can also utilize any storage instead of local disk to store a transitional copy of emails.
Version 8.1.3, built on 6 August 2020. 106 MBBackup Software from Novosoft LLC. 39 USD per license.
Starting with a lightest and simplest Standard edition for home users, all solutions from Handy Backup contain a plug-in and a complete set of additional tools for email migration!
With the same "E-mail" plug-in for all email migration actions, you can move your messages between almost any services ever existing. Storing your data in a typical, readable "EML" format also allows you sorting, browsing and even manually restoring messages, as well as migrating to some local clients.
Besides the advantages of using secured IMAP protocols for most services to make a reliable email migration, you can add to overall data security by choosing a well-defended storage type (an SFTP/FTPS server, Amazon S3 or Dropbox, an external USB drive etc.), and to encrypt your e-mails.
Finally, Handy Backup provides a big list of additional options, from scheduling your email migration by an exact time and a repeating period to running as a Windows service (with user notifications sent by email) to use separate tools (such as Gmail migration tool) for quick and easy setup of some tasks!
Note: For Gmail migration, you can also use the dedicated "Gmail" plug-in with pre-defined settings for easy task setup.
Try Handy Backup as your email migration tool by downloading a 30-day trial version with all plug-ins and settings available!
