Re: [Evolution] Removing Ubuntu 9.04, Installing 14.04. How to move Evo?

I think you misunderstood what I was getting at. I mentioned Gmail
simply as an example of an email provider that supports IMAP (as long as
you configure it according to Gmail's recommendations). I do *not* mean
you can drag and drop between Evo and a browser window pointed at Gmail.
Once you configure your Gmail account for IMAP (using Gmail's web
interface), you then set it up in Evo as an IMAP account and then move
your mail across.

1. I have enabled IMAP in my gmail account. All that was involved there
was going into "settings" and selecting "enable IMAP". I am guessing
this is what is meant by "configure your Gmail account for IMAP", right?

2. You have then instructed to "set it up in Evo as an IMAP account". I
see in the account settings of evo, under "receiving mail", one can
change it from POP to IMAP. The full settings which I found in the gmail
help pages are below, at the *. Please confirm this is what is needed.

3. You have instructed-- "then move your mail across"-- "move your mail
from the old Evo into an IMAP account (using drag and drop or ImapSync)"

I went to the ImapSync website, but it looks like one has to purchase
that for 50 Euros. So I thought I would try the drag and drop. But I
still don't understand where in the gmail account I am supposed to drag
the mail to. You already instructed that it is not the actual gmail
account itself. Please let me know exactly where using the drag and
drop, I am to place all the mail folders. 

Looking forward to your further guidance.


*Settomg up Evo as an IMAP account (settings from gmail Help page)

Many clients will automatically configure the appropriate IMAP
connection settings for your account, but confirm that the connection
settings your client configures are the same as what's listed below.

If you're using a client that's not listed above, you can also use the
following information to configure your IMAP. If you have problems,
contact your mail client's customer support department for further

      * Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - Requires SSL 
              * Port: 993 
              * Requires SSL:Yes 
      * Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS 
              * Port: 465 or 587 
              * Requires SSL: Yes 
              * Requires authentication: Yes 
              * Use same settings as incoming mail server 
      * Full Name or Display Name: [your name] 
      * Account Name or User Name: your full Gmail address
        (username gmail com). Google Apps users, please enter
        username your_domain com 
      * Email address: your full Gmail address (username gmail com)
        Google Apps users, please enter username your_domain com 
      * Password: your Gmail password

If your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able
to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that
encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your
SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.
