Email migration from Google

When you migrate your email from Google, it is important to note that Google email does not use subfolders. Instead, Google categorizes email by using labels. As a result, some migration services must convert the Google labels into subfolders. When you use MigrationWiz to migrate your email, the conversion happens seamlessly in the background.

In addition to labels, Google has a folder called All Mail, which contains a copy of every message in your mailbox. By default, MigrationWiz migrates only archived email within the All Mail folder.

More items to note:

  • After the migration, you might see a new folder called All Mail. The view and folder structure will be similar to that in Google.
  • The size of the email account might be larger because of the All Mail folder.
