Moving CC email content to @umr

This document illustrates a method of moving email stored in your CC email account to your @umr email. These instructions assume that you have both a CC email account and a @umr account.

Overview

This method can be simplified into the following steps:

  1. Select an IMAP capable email client/program such as Thunderbird, Outlook, Mac Mail, or Windows Mail.
     
  2. Add both your CC and @umr accounts to your email client.
     
  3.  Drag-and-drop or copy the emails/folders you would like to keep on your @umr account

In the screenshot of Mozilla Thunderbird below, both @umr and CC email accounts are setup. With both accounts setup, messages and folders can be moved and copied from one account to another.

Selecting a capable email client

If you already have either your CC email account or @umr account setup in an email program you will only need to setup the account that is missing.

Below is a list of supported email clients with documentation:

  • Outlook (2010, 2013)
  • Outlook (2011 - Mac)
  • Windows Mail
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Mac Mail

Moving or Copying Emails

Drag and drop folders you would like moved. Depending on the email client, you may only move one folder at a time.
If you prefer, you can also select individual messages (or groups of messages), and copy them from one folder to another.

You may find that a large quantity of mail, or individual messages with large attachments take a significant amount of time to copy. Cleaning up unwanted email, or sorting your folder by message size to remove large messages may make migrating your email go more quickly.
