Hello 10_ray,

Thanks for your question about adding or importing your Yahoo and Gmail accounts into a single account. It depends on how you're asking the question. Are you saying that you want to keep your Yahoo and Gmail accounts live and active? Or are you discontinuing them and just wanting add the email from those accounts into your current account?

You can create email redirects that drive email from one account into another. You'll need to look that up in Yahoo and Gmail's documentation for the exact process to do that. Actually, here are the links for both those providers:

If you're discontinuing those accounts and just want to import the email to a single account, then you can either forward all those emails into a single account, or you can use an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird to drag and drop all those emails into a single account. This means that you would need to have all three accounts already setup in the email client. There may be an app that does this for you, but generally it would not be free. Thunderbird is a free email client, in contrast.

I hope that helps to answer your question. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.

I'd recommend setting up an IMAP account and importing the messages into Thunderbird. Then, you can copy the messages into your InMotion Hosting IMAP email account. This way, the messages will sync with your server and you will see them in webmail. This can be a lengthy process depending on how much email you want to import, but I think it will get you the desire you hope for.
