enable Gmail users to migrate their information to Tutanota.
I would like to leave the Google universe, but have so much data in Gmail, that it seems like too much work. If it were possible to transfer my Gmail folders and email, that would be fantastic.
There are already several feature requests for importing mail; this seems like a duplicate. GMail already allows export to the standard mbox format, so as long as Tutanota allows importing of standard traditional mail formats (mbox, maildir, etc) it would function for gmail as well as nearly anything else (literally anything you can already use an email client to access).
As pro user I still need to use gmail time to time. I hope this improvement will be done.
Wonderful idea, I would even PAY for it = PRO-version!
Since Gmail allows users to store far more data per account than unpaid Tutanota accounts do, this may not work as well as everyone who'd use it would hope, and of course once they do this for one provider, they'll be asked to do it for all (see Anonymous, Aug 28).
I agree it would have made my switch from Gmail easier, but I eventually just put up an auto-reply on Gmail saying I'd change addresses at a certain date, gave my new address to the people I wanted to have it, and just before I deleted my Gmail account, enabled POP3 for every message since account creation, and downloaded the messages with Thunderbird (I had to sync several times as it would only download ~500 messages at a time). Yes, it's less convenient having to open a second program to reference old messages, but I find I almost never need to anyway.
Google also has a "takeout" option (search "google takeout") which allows you to download your data from all its products in the formats of your choice, nicely zipped/tarred.
Yeah and don't forget about GMX as well
