The amount of time it takes to import an existing mail account like Yahoo or Gmail depends on the size of the import.
To estimate how long it may take, check the size of your existing email account. This information is presented in different areas depending on the provider. In Gmail for example, this information can be found by scrolling to the bottom of your inbox.
- Accounts with less than 2GB typically import in less than a day.
- Accounts larger than 2GB may take multiple days due to data limitations from email providers.
To check the status of an import, go to Menu > Email > select the email address > Imported External Accounts. Tap on the import you'd like to review to see the last attempted date and current status. The status will update once it has completed.
