Migrating from Linux Mail to SmarterMail

When moving mail from a Linux account to a Windows account, note that only mail can be imported. Contacts and calendar can not be imported. The Message Retrieval feature is recommended since only messages will be migrated.

To begin importing mail:
  1. Select Message Retrieval under Advanced Settings.
  2. Choose New and enter the information below.
    • Type: IMAP
    • Server Address: 216.251.43.26 (Personal and Nickel) | 216.251.43.97 (all other)
    • Port: 143
    • Email address
    • Password
    • Leave Retrieval Method as Manual
    • Leave Folder Transfer Method as Add as root level folders
    • Leave SSL unchecked
  3. Select Test Connection and Save if test was successful.
  4. Choose Retrieve


Your email will begin to import over to your new SmarterMail inbox. Import time will depend on the amount of messages and the speed of your Internet connection.
