View Full Version : IMAP syncronisation?
28-Jul-2008, 05:07 PM
Hi there, I was wondering whether you've considered an IMAP syncronisation option. This would allow me to backup my Gmail email to a different provider (or to a locally running IMAP server), migrate from one provider to another, etc.
Just a thought (don't know how difficult it would be).

Thanks for the suggestion. We probably won't have a chance to do IMAP synchronization in the near future.
What I usually do to migrate to another provider is open them both as IMAP accounts in my email client (Thunderbird), then copy the messages in the email client.
I'd like to endorse the IMAP folder sync request as well. We also use a mix of Thunderbird and Outlook for email (depends on th person), and have both individual email folders (often POP) and IMAP folders shared between multiple users into which emails relevant to specific projects / customers are copied. So there are two use cases:
1. IMAP folder one side, IMAP/POP folder the other. Look at which individual emails are already in the project folder and be able to copy specific emails across from the second folder.
2. Bulk copy, e.g. 2000 emails, from one folder into another. This often fails part way through, and there is no easy way to see which messages are already across and which have yet to be moved.
Perhaps a paid BC plug-in (or attached to an existing BC installation) for Thunderbird is a way to manage the interfaces?
BTW, BC3 is brilliant: have used it and its predecessors daily for 10 years this month, starting with v1.9! Thanks for a great product.

Thanks for the suggestion and feedback. I'll add these notes to our Customer Wishlist entry.
We've got a few large projects on our plate right now, so it is unfortunately unlikely this enhancement would be coming soon; but if/when we investigate in the future we'll consider your scenario.
If you have any other suggestions/questions, please feel free to let us know here in the forum or at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
