I have an email account on mail.in.com. However their email service will shut down soon.
Hence I need to transfer all of these emails (more than 4k) to my gmail account.

Is there any software or service which will allow me to do so ?

Please note that mail.in.com does not support POP3, IMAP, SMTP but only web based access; so using gmail's import feature is not a possibility.

Without an IMAP or POP3 it is not possible to import a remote mailbox automatically using a generic program. However It may be possible to write one that recursively goes through the entire webmail interface to fetch all mails.

But I don't recommend this way though, as in your case your provider gives you the ability to download your mails as files (As far as I can guess as text or HTML-files) and also to forward the to another account (I don't know what they mean exactly).

To import the downloaded mails as files to an existing IMAP-Account, you can use the Addon ImportExportTools for Thunderbird, which can handle various file-formats for imports.

  • Thanks for your answer. Forward here means that all new mails to mail.in.com will be automatically forwarded to the new id till March. As they are providing a zip file containing the HTML of the emails, I guess that I need to use thunderbird to merge all those with gmail. Jan 4, 2015 at 9:27
  • Perhaps you could use a tool like these weirdkid.com/products/emailchemy or aid4mail.com/email-conversionto upload your downloaded email files into another email account via IMAP? Jan 4, 2015 at 10:03
  • @ExtremeCoders Yes, there're for example the ImportExportTools (Addon for Thundbird) which can do that.
