kgagne Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 Hello, I've been using Spamcop for about eight years, always POPping into Apple Mail. Locally, I've accrued about 100 folders and 4 GB of archived sent and received messages. My MacBook has always been my only computing device, so keeping everything synced by restricting my email usage to that machine has not been an issue. Now the whole world has gone mobile, and I would like to be able to send and receive messages on other devices and have that reflected in Apple Mail. I presume this means switching from POP3 to IMAP. I've used IMAP with other email providers, but I've never switched an existing account *to* IMAP. I have a few questions about the process. Will my 4 GB of local mail archives be uploaded to SpamCop's servers? If so, will my folder hierarchy be preserved? What storage limitations does my SpamCop account have -- will I max out before I can upload all 4 GB? Other than making local SuperDuper & Time Machine backups, is there anything I can or should do to prevent errors and data loss during the initial protocol transition? I searched the SpamCop Web site and forum to see if this topic has been discussed before but didn't see anything. I'd happily accept pointers to existing discussions, rather than repeat them in this thread. Thank you! -Ken Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
