Google E-mail Uploader Imports Your Mac Mail

Gmail is actually still the new kid on the block when it comes to e-mail. It launched in 2004, but has only been open to the public since 2007. By comparison Yahoo! and Hotmail have been offering electronic communication since 1997, and non-Web mail services predate that by almost two decades, so its safe to assume that you probably have e-mail sitting around in some other account that predates your Gmail.

If you want to move all of your old mail; whether it's sitting around in Outlook, Hotmail, or Apple's Mail app to Gmail, Google has simple solutions for each scenario. Windows users have had a one-stop desktop app for uploading e-mail since 2008, and Web mail has been easily importable thanks to Gmail's ability to pull in POP. Now Google has rounded out the line up (well, kind of, but Linux didn't want to play anyway) by offering a mail uploader tool for Macs.

The one limitation -- the uploader apps can only import to Google Apps accounts, not standard Gmail. [From: Google Mac Blog]
