    My aim is to dump my gmail account and switch to another email service. Without this import feature, Tutanota don't really have any use for me.

    So, almost four years have passed since the start of this thread for the fundamentally important capability of being able to import emails from GMail, et al., into Tutanota.

    This is literally priority one for many current and prospective users of Tutanota.

    Four years...

    Please keep us informed WHEN you will add this feature... priority number 1 !

  • David commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is also a dealbreaker for me. I need my email all in one place.

    This is literally the only thing preventing me from joining. I'm literally considering paying much more money for protonmail because I can switch to them. How can I switch to a new email provider without my existing emails?!

    Comment peut-on importer des contacts dans Tutanota ?

    Je n'ai pas trouvé comment faire, merci pour votre aide.

    This is a showstopper for me unfortunately. I was just about to upgrade to the paid service and switch my domain over, but I can't use a service that I can't get my data out of.

    Without the ability to import email, Tutanota is useless for me.
    So sad.
    IMAP & POP isn´t possible on encrypted mail, isn´t it?

  • wf commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    The ability to import all email from GMail is absolutely necessary.

    This should not be a particularly large development task; about one person-month to implement, test, and deploy seems like a reasonable estimate.

    Come on Tutanota, make it happen!

    To all who are anxious of their email once Tuta should go out of order: THINK!!! This is Open Source!!! You could always create your own Tuta from the sources. So even exporting encrypted is no issue as long as I can save my key by which my mails are encrypted.

    This is simply not a serious service until you can import my email history.

  • Ben commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Encrypted email is a great idea and credit goes to Tutanota, but how do you expect people to move over to your service if we can't import? I've tried - it is simply not practical. Imagine the uptake if you could provide an actual method to easily roll over from gmail. The apps and client should come secondary to this feature- do it right and the increased number of users will solidify your presence ....and then you can finish off your secondary features (which by the way are very important too). Until then most of us are just not going to use your product even though we desperately want to!

    Please add the possibility to import/export emails. without that your product is really just a toy...!

    It would certainly be a very good feature - I am no tech-expert and do not know if there is any possible encryption-problem coming with it, otherwise I'd be all for it.

    On the other hand, it is no hard work to just copy important messages myself - and face it, in times of 15 calls and messages just to get 1 meeting done ("I am close to you - I can already seeeee you!") 99,99% of all mails of this kind are simply trash. So until this is a feature, I have no problem to save my mails myself in a folder (if I wish so, gpg encrypted on linux^^) I do it at the moment - write the mail, save them in Linux. Not useful after 1 year and hundreds of mails, but very easy 1 to 1.

    This would be an important feature making it possible to switch to Tutanota.

    Please work on the import. I would like to get rid of Gmail as well. But cannot afford to loose all the history.
