You will need the following:

  • A good internet connection or patience if you have a lot of emails!

How long does it take?

This largely depends on three factors:

  • The number of emails

  • The size of your attachments

  • Your internet connection speed

You should expect about 1 hours work in addition to the transfer time for your email.


There are some limitations with the solution we use in the guide.

  • The software only runs on Windows and Linux.

  • After you transfer your email from the account you backup from all email will be marked as read.
