Re: Transfer Emails

Here is a friendly tip that worked for me in the past. I used a email client like Microsoft outlook or windows live mail at the time, cant remember which one exactly, but when the program is open i simply highlight ALL the messages in my inbox and create a folder on my desktop, drag them to the folder, and copy them there, then make another folder for sent items, select all the emails in my sent items, drag them to the sent folder on my C:\>_ Drive desktop. then take the folders and burn them to a blank CD-R disc or a DVD-R disc for archival purposes. that way when my account is closed i still have the individual files from my email.

you can only read existing emails and keep copies of the messages for legal reasons if need be but you cant continue using this account and if u want a new account make it with one of the big 3 email providers ie: Hotmail, yahoo mail and G-Mail

Re: Transfer Emails

Good evening @elaineng,

 

Thanks for posting your issue to the Community!

We most definitely want to help you resolve the issue you're experiencing.

 

Could you please tell us what you're trying to accomplish specifically?

 

Some users reported they moved their email from Rogers Yahoo to Hotmail/Outlook using a local mail client. They setup both accounts in the local mail client, then copied/moved the individual folders & contents.

 

Is it because you are thinking of cancelling your Rogers Internet account?

 

If you could let us know what failed in the steps you followed in the Wikipedia article, it would be much appreciated.

 

Looking forward to your reply!

Re: Transfer Emails

Hi Shaun,

Did you ever learn how to do that ....transfer all your rogers.yahoo emails and contacts to a regular Yahoo account?

 

Thanks... I'm trying to help someone do it and we are having difficulty.
