Migrating from POP to IMAP

November 3rd, 2007

I’ve finally decided to move my email from POP to IMAP, now that I have two computers. Well, I thought this would be a great time to cleanup my inbox so the migration would be quicker and cleaner. Man…I need help. Over 2500 emails in my inbox with no particular organization at all. What a beating!

Am I the only one who doesn’t file emails effectively? How many emails are in your inbox?

    Tyson, I’ve been using gmail for the last six months and now have over 200 MB worth of messages perfectly stored and organized. I think it works great!

    Yeah, I like Gmail too (especially since they are offering free IMAP now). I’ve had a gmail account for a couple of years, I just haven’t used it as my primary email. Something about me feels good about hosting my email on my own, but maybe that’s just silly.

    It is silly.

    Anytime the inbox count is over 50 I file them away.

    My breaking point is about 200. I like the archive function on Gmail. It lets me pretend like I don’t have so many old emails still around, but I don’t have to file them, and I can still keyword search them. Who needs organization?

    Man, you guys sure do like Google a lot. :-)
