migrating e-mail contacts and folders
Enthusiast - Level 2

Verizon does not seem to allow the migration of your contact list.  Verizon also only allows the download of single files, one at a time. So, if you want to migrate all of your saved files and folders, you will spend hours doing so. Why doesn't Verizon have an export button for this problem?

If, instead of the web-interface, you use a mail-program capable of handling multiple accounts -- such as Thunderbird, Outlook, Eudora, KMail, etc. -- you can configure both your Verizon and your new account in it.

You should then be able to simply drag-and-drop messages and entire folders from one account into another. Verizon's insistence on POP3 (instead of IMAP4) may make this a little difficult, but you should still be able to migrate the INBOX, at least...

Not sure, what to do about contacts -- I always keep those locally myself...

If you are migrating to GMail, they may help you migrate too -- I think, you can configure GMail to automatically access your other e-mail accounts (such as via POP3) and Google may even have implemented some special handling for Verizon accounts already.
