I'd like to transfer e-mails from a username@mydomain.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!:-)

thanks!

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?

thank you

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.

I think your gmail account can be set to forward a copy of NEW emails to another email account.

so you can download a copy of past emails, and forward a copy of future emails
