Lightbulb moving emails to gmail


Hey people, I just found this very interesting article: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/HowToT...ooToGmail.aspx

Since I'm using evolution, and I'm very dissatisfied (corrupted my calendar once, and now it's messing up my emails?), I wish to fully use gmail from now on, but I have a few important messages I should have backuped to gmail.

The problem is that this article was made for windows users. Can anyone figure a way for Linuxers? And please move this thread if it's not in the right forum.

Well.. it works for me o_O you can try googling it too

how to transfer/move email from hotmail to gmail

What I want to achieve, is move email that is currently stored in Novell Evolution 2.2.x, and have it transfered cleanly to my gmail account (without "forwarding" every single mail myself and messing up the "from" and "to" headers)

Hi, I just spent nearly 3-4 hours trying to get GML to send the messages properly. It seems this has its flaws: why doesn't it retry sending the erroneous messages? Why doesn't it have a halt button? I guess I'll drop a mail to the author.

Anyways, the problem was trying to add aliases for easy labelling. For instance, mymail+whateveralias @ gmail.com (without spaces). While using the alias function, there was no way the mail could get to the inbox. Go figure. I tried with/without quotes, with the version 0.5 (gui) and with the version 0.4 (command line), with strict mbox or less-restrictive mbox interpreter, to no avail.

So I ended up frustrated, and just selected less than 10 emails I would keep, and forwarded them (the barbarian way) to my gmail account. I hope gmail implements mbox importing one of these days.
