Now to transfer your emails from Old Hosting Account to New Hosting Account, follow below steps i. Go to the folder (like Inbox) of Old Hosting Account.

Once all mails of the selected folder are listed, Select All mails by pressing Ctrl+A or Right Click and choose Select All. After selecting all emails, Right Click on any of the email and choose option "Move". iii. This will open a dialog box and will ask you to Choose Folder to Move emails to. In the list of folders you can see all Email Acounts configured in Microsoft Outlook alongwith their folders and also the Local Folders of Microsoft Outlook. Here you must select the same folder (like Inbox) of Account 2 and click OK to start transfer process. You can also select a Local Folder in the list if you want to download and archive emails to your computer. This is a good way to backup your emails from time to time. This way your mails will get transferred to Email Account on New Hosting Server. You must repeat this process for all folders you want to transfer and start over with setting up Account 1 and Account 2 in order to transfer email messages of other email accounts. NOTE: Time taken to transfer emails will depend on the number/size of emails in the folder. Also you must keep your computer and internet connection ON until transfer is complete. This concludes the procedure to transfer your emails from one mailbox to another.
