Migrate mail using a Mac
If you're managing your Google Apps account from a Mac®, you have the following options for migrating mail from other mail programs to Google Apps.
For more details, see data migration service overview.
Gmail Mail Fetcher is a tool that migrates mail from a Gmail or non-Gmail account to a Google Apps email account. In most cases, a user migrates their own mail using Mail Fetcher. However, an administrator with the user's login credentials can also migrate the user's mail.
Please note the following limitations. Mail Fetcher:
- Only migrates messages in the user's inbox.
- Does not migrate folders.
- Changes the received date of all messages to the date of migration.
Use Mail Fetcher if your users do not have strict migration requirements and have not archived their messages or sorted mail into folders.
Third-party web tools and migration services offered by Google Apps partners are available on the Google Apps Marketplace. Some of these tools and services migrate mail while preserving receive dates, folder/label structure, read/unread status, importance levels, and also migrate sent messages.
