        So long since I set it up, pretty sure it is for basic stuff - it is installed on all android things as standard, what do you use for emails phone/PC/mac/tablet? or all of them? You can install it on all. any android will already have it.

        You can just visit website if you would prefer https://mail.google.com

        I do use it to autoforward my other emails to it.

              I'm in the same boat and have been looking at Thunderbird and Mailbird but will go with Outlook for the time being.

              My main concern is that all my emails from 2003 are downloaded to Incredimail so have been experimenting with some converters to get them safely transferred and backed up in a format readable by other email setups, I've gone with the one they put in the email since the others look slightly dodgy and I couldn't persuade them to work consistently. The recommended one works quickly and is easy to use.

                You need to convert from IMM to EML. You need to get something which will batch process or you have to do them one by one ...

                    I've used Incredimail as the email client locally on my PC(s) since it first came out 20 years ago and only download what I want to keep, accessing my various email accounts online and pruning it there, but it didn't play nicely with Windows 10. It uses a different way of saving which isn't directly compatible with anything else. I won't lose the desktop version and will stop using it for any new stuff, but prefer to transfer it in case further Windows 10 updates kill it altogether.

                    There are direct convertors from IMM to EML, MBOX , gmail et al around, and being heavily pushed since the announcement this week, but when you investigate they all go to the same company. They are cheaper than the one recommended by Incredimail but the two I trialled show they are inconsistent so I would be very wary of using them.

                      https://turgs.com/blog/incredimail-to-gmail/ - this is one which I tried. After you've googled a bit you find that you begin to recognise the Download button and instructions and see they are basically the same software.

                      I only spent a short time yesterday exploring so will carry on today and report back later.

                        I don't know incredible mail, from what you have said it is something that is on PC and is bringing in emails from accounts?

                        If Val has all the emails she 'wants' still in the server then they can just be downloaded in the normal way to a new email program like Thunderbird. That is what I do, Emails I wish to keep are always on the server. That way I don't need to back them up.


                        That is what i did when I got a new PC, just installed new email and then they all downloaded in the new place.

                          Yes it is - it resides locally on my pc and I mostly work from my laptop. and nowadays my phone. so read/delete there and it is downloaded automatically on the to PC if it is for keeping and then gets backed up from there. I think there are some other members who use it too. We've had discussions before about Incredimail and I don't remember what Val does but she may have some downloaded if she is still using it. If she has left it all on her server then it will be easy. I keep nothing online bar the previous week's emails which sit in deleted. Until now it's been dead easy just to move it over from PC to PC and changing countries/providers meant no issues in having to transfer everything by keeping what needs keeping offline.

                            I make sure that Thunderbird only deletes emails off server that I delete, but keeps all others.

                                  If it is only your contacts, you can save them as a .CSV from Incredimail > File > Export/Import - then this https://www.lifewire.com/import-gmai...erbird-1173152

                                  If it is all your messages then you will need another piece of convertor software.

                                    which email provider/address are you using, I am wondering if the addresses may already be on their cloud?
