Email Import

Nobody likes moving their emails. It's a tiresome and stressful task. With CrossBox, importing emails is simple. Just enter your email address details, put your feet up, and relax while the import tool takes care of everything.

Can I import my emails from any IMAP server?

Yes. You'll need:

  • IMAP hostname
  • Email address
  • Password

Can I import my emails from Gmail?

If you are importing from Gmail please make sure to first temporarily allow access to your Google Account as described in https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255.

Do I need to wait until the import job finishes?

No, you can continue using the app while the importing continues in the background. Most recent emails are imported first, so you can get to emailing as soon as possible.

Will it also create and import the IMAP folders from the source?

Yes. CrossBox will automatically create all the mail folders that are found at the source server (or map them to the existing ones) and then copy over the emails into the appropriate folders.
