Gmail: All Your Emails Are Belong To Us
Google is removing one of the most common excuses for not using Gmail: “It’s such a pain in the (beep) to switch!”
The company announced a new tool that simplifies the process of importing emails and contacts from other providers, including bigger competitors like Yahoo Mail and Hotmail.
All new Gmail users have access to the import feature via the renamed “Accounts and Import” tab in Gmail Settings. The import feature will be “slowly rolled out” to existing Gmail users.
The import tool currently supports close to 50 email providers. You can see the full list in Gmail Help.
