Microsoft today said you can use Outlook.com to import and manage your email from Yahoo Mail and many other IMAP-enabled email providers.
Earlier, Microsoft received good response from the customers who imported their email from Gmail to Outlook.com.
Mike Schackwitz, principal director of Program Management, Outlook.com, in his blog post, said: “Importing your mail will not affect your old account – you can keep using it as you always have.”
Microsoft initiative reflects a recent Radius Global study that said 81 percent of all email users are using multiple email services. But migrating mails from an old account to a new one is not easy, said Microsoft in a blog post.
The import wizard in Outlook.com allows you to import and manage your mail from Yahoo Mail or many other IMAP-enabled email providers, or from Gmail. You can keep your old email addresses and Outlook.com can manage them in one place.
