What Is Email Migration?

Email migration is the process of transferring an email account into a mail program. The migration allows email users to manage multiple email accounts or a single account from a specialized program that can be downloaded or installed on a computer.

In addition to computer-based email programs, users can also migrate mail accounts to cloud-based programs that are hosted online and that can be accessed from any computer, tablet or mobile device. The benefits of migrating email accounts include convenient access to messages, the ability to organize contacts and messages, mail filtering capabilities and features such as group messaging, personalized signatures and folders to filter incoming messages.
