GMail, moving from pop3 to imap, moving PST file location
Posted on 2014-12-05
I used Outlook 2007 with gmail account as pop3. All rest of the question pertains to gmail. I want to move to imap. I know the settings and created imap account and stopped Send/Receive on pop3, but did not delete it. The pop3 folders are intact. In pop3 I had my own custom folders and rules. I also have pst file 6gb on C drive which is SSD drive. I want:
1. Create identical folder structure in imap
2. Copy pop3 emails in those folders (as they appeared in pop3)
3. Set rules in imap as I had on pop3 (divert mail to corresponding folder)
4. Move pst file to different location as space on SSD is premium.
What is the best way to achieve this and ensure there is no duplication of emails?
