Email Migration from Google


When you migrate your email from Google, it is important to note that Google email does not use sub-folders.  Instead, Google categorizes email by using "labels."  As a result, some migration services must convert the Google labels into sub-folders.  When you use MigrationWiz to migrate your email, the conversion happens seamlessly in the background.  

In addition to labels, Google has a folder called All Mail, which contains a copy of every message in your mailbox. By default, MigrationWiz only migrates archived email within the All Mail folder. 

More items to note:

  • After the migration, you might see a new folder called All Mail. The view and folder structure will be similar to that in Google.  
  • The size of the email account might be larger because of the All Mail folder.
