Hello, I am cancelling my Yahoo! account and will be using ATT for email. Is it possible for me to import/copy/upload my Yahoo! personal folders (not inbox, trash, etc.) to ATT email? Thanks, Linda

Thanks for your reply, but I want that account gone as soon as I finish up some related business. Spam is uncontrolled and I'm tired of it. L.

If you setup both your old Yahoo account and your new account with IMAP, then you should be able to just drag a folder form one account and drop it on the other and it will copy the folder and contents to the new account. I have done this numerous times to move folders around between some of my accounts. Keep in mind that this may take a long time, and use a good bit of bandwidth if you have lots of content in the stored folders. I have used this method to copy content from GMail to a private mail server for my domain, to copy content from an old Yahoo account to a newer GMail account, etc. The trick is to set them both up as IMAP and leaving it all connected until the copy is completed.
