Can I Migrate My Email From A POP Email Account?

edited February 2017 in Email
While you can migrate from a POP email account, it will not migrate folders other than the inbox. This is not possible using POP. The POP protocol only permits access to the inbox. This is because the POP protocol was designed at a time (1984) when there was no concept of multiple folders other than the inbox. Therefor it is recommend that you use an IMAP server instead.
