Notes on Migrating Emails – From Gmail to Gmail

Email, Google


Logging Out of the Old Gmail Account

The easiest way to make sure you’re logged out of all devices is to go through your Gmail account. Click the icon with your initial or image in the top right corner of your screen and click ‘Manage your Google Account’

Select the arrow on the device you want to sign out of and select Sign Out

Click security on the left-hand side and scroll down to ‘Your Devices’ and click ‘Manage all devices’

Enable Pop-Ups – New Gmail Account

Enable these pop-ups in your new gmail account.

To enable pop-ups, click the lock box icon next to the URL and select ‘Site Settings’

Under settings, find Pop-up and redirects and change the default to ‘Allow’

Start the migration process

In the new Gmail account, go to the Gear Icon > See All Settings

Choose ‘Accounts and Import,’ then ‘Import mail and contacts’

Enter your old Gmail account and click Continue

Click Continue again

Another pop-up window will open. Select ‘Use another account’ and enter in the details of your old account or sign in if your old account is there.

Click Allow

Close the sign-in window and wait for Gmail to finish checking

Select options and click ‘Start Import’

Click OK

You can find all imported email in the ‘All Mail’ box. If you don’t see it right away, there should be a drop down menu.

If you want to move these emails to your inbox, select all and drag to ‘Inbox’

Now all of the emails from the old gmail account will be under Labels with the title of your old account.
