I recall there was an option in Gmail email settings to import emails from another email account but I no longer see it. Is this option still available?

HOLY COW. I looked 18 times and didn't see it! – Howiecamp Aug 14 '11 at 11:39

If this does not work for a specific provider you can always use Mozilla Thunderbird to import mail between different services and set up a filter to move or copy incoming messages from the old account to new one.
