Make Your Digital Life Easier By Consolidating Your Various Email Accounts

b2ap3_thumbnail_solutions_400.jpg

b2ap3_thumbnail_solutions_400.jpgHow many email accounts do you have? At the very least, you have one for work and for one that’s personal, and if you’ve been doing email long enough, then you may have a few accounts left over from years ago which you rarely check (like your email address from college). Is there a way to combine these scattered accounts into an email address of your choice?

Actually, there is. You can manually migrate your old email information from one account to another, but for the casual PC user, this can be a rather cumbersome process. This is where a tool like YippieMove comes in handy.

YippieMove helps users move their email information between one Internet Service Provider to another. Transferring email information on the ISP level is what’s needed to make a clean merge, instead of just forwarding all of your emails to your new account and shutting down your old one. One reason why you’ll want to use a tool like YippieMove is because you don’t want to necessarily shut down your old account–you never know when you’ll get contacted by a long lost friend or miss out on a lucrative business opportunity, all because your old account is no longer operational.

Although, to have YippieMove transfer your email account for you, it will cost you a fee of $15 to transfer a single account to another account, like from AOL to Gmail. One of the advantages of YippieMove is that it’s compatible with dozens of old ISPs that you likely have an old account with. For a listing of their most popular ISPs they work with (and this service works for ISPs not listed here as well), visit YippieMove’s about page

The transfer process with YippieMove is easy and self-explanatory (which is what you’re paying for). All you have to do is follow these three steps:

  • Where are you moving from?
  • Where to?
  • What to transfer?

The third step is where you’ll customize what information you would like transferred, which includes some or all of the following:

  • Drafts
  • Inbox
  • Saved
  • Saved/SavedMs
  • Sent items
  • Spam
  • Voicemail

Finally, you will next want to give the service time to complete the transfer, which won’t take more than 24 hours. For more information on how the YippieMove transfer process works, visit their help page: https://www.yippiemove.com/help

The blog Online Tech Tips has issued this troubleshooting advice just in case you experience any hang-ups with YippieMove’s transfer process:

It’s worth noting that the website does not give you any error message if you mistype your login credentials on the first two steps. When you get to step 3, it’ll be empty instead of listing out the folders. In that case, go back and retype your login credentials. Also, if you’re using two-factor on any of the accounts, you will probably have to disable it in order to do the transfer.

Of course, as helpful as a tool as YippieMove is, it’s designed more for individual and personal email accounts; not multiple enterprise-level accounts. Things can get tricky when you’re transferring corporate emails from one account to another, like having to meet compliance standards within your respective industry and governmental organizations. Therefore, for your organization’s email hosting needs, give Symmetric IT Group a call at (813) 749-0895.
