To migrate email from a POP server, users can run Google’s Mail Fetcher service. Mail
Fetcher automatically imports email at regular intervals from up to five POP accounts, making
it suitable for small pilots in which users want to continue receiving email in their existing
account.

Features

Inbox or archive: Users can either move messages to their Google Inbox or archive them
using Google’s Archive feature.

No spam: Mail Fetcher removes spam messages.

Considerations

•Users run Mail Fetcher from their own Gmail account, so you have no administrative
control over the process from your Google Apps control panel.

•Mail Fetcher downloads only 200 messages at a time, at which point it pauses, and then
downloads the next 200, until it downloads all new messages.

•Messages larger than 20 MB aren’t migrated (along with some user settings, certain types
of file attachments, and other information listed under “Email migration” on page120.)

•Message “state” such as flags, read/unread status, and so on, are not migrated with Mail

Fetcher.

•You can optionally disable the Mail Fetcher feature for your domain. For details, contact
your Google representative.

Recommended

For small pilots in which users will manage their own migrations from a mail
server that supports POP download.

EffortLow.

StaffNone.

Benefits

to your email environment.
