I want to move my messages from one Gmail account to another, but not all and that is the problem. All manuals in the web shows how to set up forwarding/import that moves all messages, but I don't want to do that, I want to move messages by some label.

I tried email import feature making source messages unread beforehand, but anyway it imported all mailbox, both read and unread.

Is there a way to more fine-grained import?


  • Do you have the Outlook client? You can drag messages from one mailbox to another with that client.

  • No, unfortunately no. I have only Win10 built-in client.

  • AFAIK there is no built-in feature to do that. You could use an IMAP email client, the Gmail API / Google Apps Script or a third party tool.

  • it is very generic comment. I know that I should use a 3rd tool or a script but I need details: exact Google Apps script, not just comment
