I'd like to transfer e-mails from a email@example.com
just created a hotmail account to have the e-mails sent there, and then wanted to use this trueswitch(i think that was the name) application, but I hadnt considered that they wont transfer emails from mydomain.com-type of e-mail accounts.
Actually, it is a gmail-account...but a @mydomain.com-one if that makes any sense lol.
Any suggestions how I can transfer my e-mails? (I really just want it for safety issues, as im not comfortable to have all of them in only one place....you never know what might happen)
Any software I could use for that..that exists for free? I know nobody is allowed to state brand names on here, but im basically just wondering how to solve this problem (that i cant transfer @mydomain.com-emails to a hotmail-account).
Maybe there are other email providers with accounts that i could create where it doesnt matter from what kind of e-mail address the e-mails would be transferred from?
Again, I know brand names cant be mentioned on WebmasterWorld, but if someone just gives me a hint at what kind of tools/software i should look at and if they exist for free, online, then i should be able to figure it out without any brand mentions on here!:-)
PS: forwarding all e-mails in the account, is that something that might works with gmail accounts? (cant see how right now, but if it does work ill be able to figure it out i guess)

i assume you are referring to Google Apps email. you can probably do this by enabling POP download for that account. you can do this in Settings/Forwarding and POP/IMAP. you can enable download for all emails there. then download all email to an email client configured to access your G Apps account. then forward all email to the Hotmail account.

thanks for the quick reply!
I have just tested what you suggested in the first 4 of 6 lines.
I think I can skip step #6, as I really just want to have it for safety reasons (in case something happens to the gmail account - im a bit paranoid with stuff like this ;)).
However as for step #5..I assume I'll need to have outlook (or use a PC that has outlook) or a similar program (I assume outlook is an e-mail client, right?)...and in that e-mail client (e.g. outlook) I, then, can configure that I want it to download the e-mails from my google apps e-mail account?

Makaveli2007 just sent you a sticky with a software recommendation. was not sure if it is correct to post the brand name here. Anyway, it works for me. Regarding having email not on one place: I always have one archive (doen with above mentioned program) on my live HD, a backup stored on cd and an other backup on cd stored at the bank.
