Import external e-mail account
We will implement this but it is not yet on the top of our list. We first have to finish the new client and the apps…
You really should consider a feature of importing emails from other providers, it could be developed as a external extension (middle-man, to say so), that could fetch emails from gmail or whatever and then load them in a specific folder in tutanota account.
This is a MUST if you want people to migrate to your service... one can't simply abandon all their emails for your new service... and if they still have to keep the other providers just to check old emails, then what is that big deal of changing?
Please, think a bit in perspective. Thank you
Come on Tutanota - how are we supposed to use your service if we cant get our old emails into your email accountt? We won't look at numerous providers to search through all our emails
I just signed up for Tutanota and agree, I cannot use it really until I can import my emails from my yahoo and gmail so I can get started. Please expedite this addition :) Thank you!
I signed up for Preumium and I find the interface settings area hard to use but I like the service. My problem is the same. I have to be able to get a large number of email messages out of 2 gmail accounts. If I can't do that , then I have to abandon Tutanota for now. Also tried Protonmail - same issue.

Yes, please add the import/export features! These aspects are essential to me as I want to migrate from my old email hosting provider and this would encourage me to pay for a Tutanota (10 GB) account.
I see that Tutanota's beta webmail client (https://mail.tutanota.com/) allows multiple messages to be exported, but doing so just automatically pops-up multiple download dialogs for each individual message. To me a better approach would be to have the server to generate a single ZIP file to contain all of the messages that I selected for export. For example, if I selected 100 messages to export, I do not want to click on 100 different dialogs to save all of the emails locally, as I’d rather just download one ZIP file :-).
Also, the existing Tutanota export saves the file in “.eml” format but all of the information is encrypted. That’s great and all, but how would I import this file into a local email client (e.g., Evolution or Thunderbird)? Or is there another way to decrypt the message locally? Since, basically, I cannot do anything with these “.eml” files at this time, right? Meaning, I cannot even re-import them to Tutanota’s webmail system, correct?
However, great service so far. I love what Tutanota is and hope it continues to get better!
Please add import emails and contact's. The sooner the better. Thank you
It's not a option ! you talk about security to hide the message, but it s security too ! if you can't export or import email your not free, so not in total security.

Have recently signed up to Tutanota and wish to import all my archived mail from my previous email account. This is really important to me and hope a solution is implemented very soon.
FINALLY! tuta seems to approach the 1980s by allowing to select a few messages for export at the same tme. good job. now lets move to 1990 with full mailbox export and set the target to the year 1995 with encryption key export. Err ... we are a few decades later, the year is 2017 tutanota folks, not 1980.
Exporting multiple mails has been implemented in our new client (currently in beta).
Importing is still on our TODO-List but there are many higher rated feature request that will be implemented before...
has this been implemented yet? it has been about 2 years
Product is generally superb but this is the big one for me:
Importing contacts from Exchange/O365
Importing emails from Exchange/O365
Then it's feasible to roll this out to my business.
Can't use tutnota until IMAP/POP3 will be enable !

please provide this feature. some people *cough* me, would like to archive my archive locally. and since compatible secure IMAP (or similar) clients are non-existant. please add this simple feature and I will love you for enternity.
sorry i get emotional about geeky crap ;)
In case you need any more reason, look at all the requests at your competitors, Protonmail . 108 comments requesting this essential feature at the time this comment was posted.
It seems crazy that an email service with so many other great features completely strikes out by missing such a basic yet critical feature like this. I nearly signed up for a paid account, but luckily I did some research instead of following my "of course they have this basic feature" assumption. Locking in customers by not offering bulk export is a complete non-starter.
I would really like this feature, as I like to have back ups of my data just in case.
Yes, please add this!
This is the feature I want the most, if I understand the feature request correctly.
I come from Gmail and the functionality I want is what is found on the Gmail Settings -> Accounts panel. That allows Gmail to act as a client to my other mailboxes and pull emails in, which is superior to forwarding emails from the other mailboxes.
This is a fairly substantial feature request but it's at the top of my wishlist.

Importing contacts from Yahoo is currently not possible. However, you can use all contacts stored on your phone when using your app.
