The Easiest Way to Import Emails from a Gmail Account to AWeber

Have you ever wished there was an easier way to migrate your emails from one service to another? You can do this with AWeber. Let’s dive in and see how.

Migrate Your Email With AWeber’s Amazing Import Tool

AWeber’s email migration tool is pretty cool. Not only does it allow you to easily import emails from a Gmail account, but it also provides a simple way to export your email to Outlook, which is pretty great if you’re looking for a one-stop-shop to handle your email needs.

Let’s take a look at how to use this tool to migrate emails quickly and effortlessly.

Run Big Query Deep Dives

To get started, you’ll need to sign up for a free AWeber account. Once you’ve created your account, click on the three stacked lines in the upper right corner to reveal your dashboard.

From here, you can select the Import option, which will pull up an amazing tool called Big Query. Big Query is an amazing platform that allows you to run complex queries against massive datasets. You’ll see that Big Query is more than just an email migration tool. It has all the basics—from email capture to email blasting—so you can build out your next email campaign.

Set Your Gmail Account As Your Source

Next, it’s time to set your source. In the example above, I used Gmail because that’s what I have lying around. You can also use Outlook, which is probably the most popular email client, or anything else you may have as your source. When I first set up the account, I chose Gmail as my source because that’s what I have available. If you don’t have a Gmail account, you can create one easily from the AWeber dashboard. Just navigate to Settings and click on the Create a New Account button.

Once you’ve done that, you can return to the dashboard and click on the Import button. You’ll then be brought to a confirmation screen where you can enter a captcha code. After that, all your email will be imported and ready to use.

Grab All Your Inbox’s Subscribers

Another thing you can do with the Email migration tool is to extract all your email subscribers. To do this, click on the gear in the upper right corner of the dashboard. From there, you can select the option for All subscribers. Then, click on the blue button to continue.

At this point, you’ll see a list of all the email addresses that were imported from your Gmail account. Simply hit the Download CSV button to download a copy of the list in CSV format (comma separated values). You can then use this list to import subscribers into other systems such as Mailchimp and HubSpot. You can do the same with the Contacts imported from your account to easily mass import into your own database.

What About The Attachments?

One of the things you may be wondering about when you migrate your email is the attachment. When you migrate an email, the original attachments are not saved. You do have the option to choose which of the attached documents you want to import. You can do this from the Settings tab of the Email migration tool. Simply check the box next to the attachments that you want to bring over and click on the blue button to continue.

This is a massive convenience when you’re looking to move all your email attachments quickly and easily. It prevents you from having to save and attach all your documents one by one. In addition, you don’t have to worry about accidentally deleting any of your important files because they’re not attached to the email message.

One More Thing…

If you’re still reading this, then you might be wondering about one more thing. How can I be sure that all my emails are going to be migrated successfully? This tool saves all your emails as a draft in your Gmail. So, in a way, you’re creating a backup just in case something goes wrong. This is a critical step in ensuring that your email is always backed up and accessible, even if something happens to your original source.
