Windows 7: Downloading entire email message, along with attachment(s), in Thunder

Downloading entire email message, along with attachment(s), in Thunder

Hi Everyone,

I have made the decision to move from Gmail to Yandex mail. I now want to transfer all of my Gmail messages to Yandex (preferably without losing any data). Yandex offers an import option, however Gmail has blocked it - I received the message below from Gmail after attemtping to import messages to Yandex.

Because importing into Yandex directly looks to be impossible I have installed Mozilla Thunderbird (v 24.1.1) and configured it for my Gmail account. Whilst all the message headers have downloaded I am not convinced that full messages have downloaded, and I am absolutely certain that email attachments haven't.

Is there a way of "forcing" Thunderbird to download the entire email, attachment and all? My plan is to upload all messages from Thunderbird into the new Yandex account by adding the new account and then dragging and dropping folders / messages inside Thunderbird.

Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Hi Golden,

To be honest I didn't bother. I don't think that "Big Brother" Google care a flying **** about me or my personal technical challenges.

Kind Regards,

Notepad email attachment problem
Hi I'm not entirely sure this is the best forum for this but couldn't see anywhere else. When you're posting/submitting articles/posts for possible posting on other sites they often ask you to submit it in plain text (Notepad) form by way of an email attachment. I've noticed recently...

Want to send an attachment on an email reply
I cannot see how to do this. Yes, I can right-click a file and choose to email it but it always goes to a new email, not to the one I'm replying to. I can work around it with the copy and paste routine. That sends the file as a picture on the email - not as an attachment.
