- Migrate Email
Migrating email from UW Gmail to a personal, non-Google email account is a manual process. This guide uses the Outlook email client provided as part of UW Office 365 ProPlus to facilitate the manual migration. If you don’t already have Outlook, you can download it using the link below.
Before migrating email, please review the UW Appropriate Use page and note that while UW Google is FERPA-compatible, personal email accounts are not.
Before migrating email, change your UW email forwarding to your personal email address so all new email is sent to your personal email account.
Start by configuring Outlook with your UW Google account and your personal email account.
When entering your UW email address, use @gamail.uw.edu (this is not a typo) for your UW Google email address (i.e., your UWNetID@gamail.uw.edu).
Once both accounts are configured in Outlook, you can copy email folders between the accounts within Outlook to migrate email between the two. Moving folders can be unreliable, so copying folders is strongly recommended.
