It is easy to import the emails using pop etc?

However how do I import:

  • All my labels etc
  • My contact list

Did you read the answers to your other question?

Per the link I gave in my answer to your other question:

If you absolutely need the old label structure, the only solution is to use an IMAP client to connect to both the old and new account and copy over folders/labels. But this solution can be tricky, because you can only copy over a certain (unspecified) amount of mail at a time. The non-Google program Gmail Backup might be able to assist with this process, but I can't vouch for its effectiveness.

Regarding contacts, from the same link:

Step 3: Export and import your contacts Login to the old account and follow the instructions on the Export Gmail contacts page. Remember the location of the saved file.

Login to the new account and follow the instructions on the Importing CSV files page using the file you just saved.

@Ian you'll have to start accepting the answers that you think they answering your questions. –  Lipis Jul 16 '10 at 22:05
    
@Lipis, I only tend to accept an answer if it completly solve the problem. I also tend to wait for a few days if it is not clear that an answer is the best possible answer to a problem. –  DoNotInstall Jul 16 '10 at 23:24
    
@Ian cool... :) –  Lipis Jul 17 '10 at 1:12

I don't think that there is a way of importing the labels, but you can easily import all your contacts:

  1. Go to your contacts in your old account, press Export and save as Google CSV file.
  2. Go to your contacts in your new account, press Import and choose the exported file.
