I am having problems with my email and am about to do a big recovery and having to set up new accounts etc.  so I thought in the process I go from POP to IMAP.  FYI I have 9 POP accounts that need to be switched. 

I have loads of messages in folders and want those to appear again in he IMAP setup.  I have questions like:

How do I best import those?  
Via .olm?  
Or drag to desktop and drag back in to IMAP setup?  
Will the email address that they are send to get lost in the transfer?

Thanks in advance for your help. 

I am not able to complete the POP send/recieve setup of my Yahoo mail account in Outlook.com.  I am getting the following error message 

"Check your email address and password, but the problem may be that Yahoo! requires you to subscribe to Yahoo! Mail Plus. Learn more "

I do not have a Yahoo Plus account, but as of the last yahoo upgrade this is no longer required.  Free accounts have been enabled to use POP.  This is what I have done:

-- I have enabled POP in my Yahoo account.  I have already configured pop access in gmail and it is working fine, so the problem is not in Yahoo.
-- I have cleared my browser cache, and tried in both Chrome and IE8
-- I have entered all of the proper POP settings and ensured that my password is correct.
-- My Yahoo user name does not match my Outlook user name

Please let me know what I have to do to fix this.

When I delete my emails from Mail on the Apple Desktop they are not deleted from my hotmail, they just go to POP. When I open hotmail and get the pop notification on the bottom I press change setting but then it says something is wrong with outlook. That happens every time I press change setting. How can I make it that when I delete emails from my Mail on the apple desktop it deletes it from hotmail, same things when sending emails to drafts....etc

 Could you please help I cannot get windows live mail to work in Updated  Windows 8, at the moment I do not have any mail client in windows 8 as the inbuilt windows mail in windows 8 will not support POP. 


Could you please help I know Outlook will work but it's expensive so what options do I have if some one could give me any information I would be greatful all my accounts are linked to my e-mail adress so it's important that I retain my e-mail address.


Hope some one can help.

what is POP,it has popped up on my computer and now my emails are being deleted from my inbox!!!!
Have a Mac tower and Notebook, both OS 10.6.8_  Have been using Outlook on Notebook for 2 types of accounts and need both on the tower.  Just now finally installed Outlook on the tower.   Set up Exchange and one account (pop) works after import but need mail account on Exchange for work.  Error alert says "Unexpected data was encountered" when installed Outlook on Mac Tower and tried to get mail.  I have a backup on an external drive from Notebook that has been working.  Where to find Data to "import" to new setup?
Using Outlook 2011 for mac. pop up error message 409"That mail is not currently available" pops up and cannot get rid of it. How can I?
Every so often i get a pop up window in Outlook that says "Mail could not be received at this time" with a message saying that authentication failed due to invalid credentials.  However, it keeps sending and receiving email just fine, these annoying messages keep popping up every second or two and prevent me from accessing email.  I've tried resetting my password, but that doesn't stop them from coming.  Has anyone else had this problem, and how do I stop it from happening?
