Seamless email migration between Gmail accounts is crucial for businesses needing instant data access without delays. This requires a secure and efficient method that ensures data protection and rapid large-scale migration. Additionally, the chosen method should preserve folder structures and data arrangements.
Typically, three methods exist for transferring emails between Gmail accounts. The first involves prompting Gmail to fetch email items, while the second employs third-party tools. The third method is manual, utilizing a desktop client like Outlook. It's important to note that allowing Gmail to fetch emails may result in the loss of email labels, whereas manual transfers preserve these labels. Here, we focus on the first method.

Transferring email items between accounts can be complex. Rather than attempting this, consider safeguarding your data by backing it up in PST format. To achieve this, we suggest using the Kernel Gmail Backup tool.
The tool offers compatibility with various IMAP servers, including **Gmail, G Suite, Amazon WorkMail, AOL, Zimbra, Outlook.com, Office365.com, ZohoMail**, and more. It provides convenient options to backup IMAP data to PST, EML, MSG, MHT, HTML, DOC, DOCX & PDF formats. For those looking to import IMAP data into an Office 365 account, we recommend using the dedicated tool, Kernel IMAP to Office 365, designed for smooth execution of this task.
The primary motivation for transferring email items is typically related to storage constraints. Google accounts offer a complimentary 15 GB storage, but additional storage necessitates a subscription. To bypass subscription costs, consider downloading Gmail data as PST files through the use of the Kernel Gmail Backup tool. These PST files are easily accessible and can be seamlessly imported into desktop email clients like Outlook.
Transferring emails from one Gmail account to another can be a laborious process, but it's manageable if you diligently follow the steps without errors. Alternatively, you can opt to backup your Gmail data to Computer. For this purpose, we strongly recommend using the Kernel Gmail Backup tool, which simplifies the process by only necessitating the login credentials of the account you wish to backup.
