I am trying to copy emails from my xxx.flash.net email address which is AT&T/Yahoo into my gmail account. When doing so I get the message ” this account cannot be imported right now. Please try again later.” I have continually got the same message for several days. What am I doing wrong?
You may be able to copy your emails from your AT&T/Yahoo account using the “POP” option. (The “POP” option can copy email messages, but not labels or folders.)
Here are the steps:
-Sign into your Gmail account.
-In the top right, click the gear icon, and select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
-Click the “Accounts and Import” or “Accounts” tab.
-In the “Check mail from other accounts” section, click “Add a mail account”.
-Type the email address of your AT&T/Yahoo account, then click “Next Step”.
-Type your password.
-Also, type the POP Server inbound.att.net and the POP port select 995.
RECOMMENDED: Check the boxes next to the options below:
>“Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail”
>“Label incoming messages”
-Leave the other boxes unchecked.
-Click “Add Account”.
