Migrate mail from other Google accounts or IMAP servers

If you've created a new Google Apps account for your organization's email, you can migrate your data from your old Google account or an IMAP server, using one of the following tools:

  • The data migration service is the recommended way to migrate mail. It's clientless and cloud-based and easy to set up and monitor. You do everything in the Google Admin console.
  • Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange (GAMME) is a utility that migrates your mail, including labels and archived mail, to another account. GAMME can also migrate other data, but requires you to install the tool first.
  • You can also check out the Google Apps Marketplace to review other migration solutions provided by third parties.

Check the prerequisites for using the data migration service and GAMME. For details, see data migration service prerequisites and About GAMME for details.
