I have a Google Apps (for education) email address for work. I am leaving the job, and want to import all of my emails into my personal, regular Gmail account.
I attempted to use the tool called Mail Fetcher ("Check mail from other accounts using POP3"), as well as "Import Mail and Contacts". I followed the directions Google gives. However, it just generates an error.
Below is the error message I see when I try to use Mail Fetcher:
Email address: ln****@t****.org
There was a problem connecting to pop.gmail.com
Show error details: Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password. Server returned error: "malformed command e127mb198161291itb"
POP Server: pop.gmail.com
A different time, the error read as follows:
Server returned error: "[SYS/TEMP] Temporary system problem. Please try again later. s82mb74850398ioe"
I have also received "The server has timed out" error. But I have tried this on several different days, and it still isn't working.
Could someone help me figure out how to import my mail?
Postscript: I successfully imported all of my mail into a different personal Gmail account. I still don't know why the first one didn't work.
