    Ditching hotmail for Gmail- need help saving emails

    Not sure what is the best section to ask this in but here it goes:

    I have tons of emails saved in my hotmail account and I want to start only using my GMail account so I am one step closer to being M$ free! Sure I can forward each one, one at a time to my GMail account, but I have A LOT of them saved. Anyone have any tips on making this transition a little smoother?

    To start, set up hotmail in Outlook/Windows Mail and export it to a file. This way, at least you'll have a backup i some form.

    Looking through one of my hotmail accts, I don't see any way to retroactively fed mail to another acct, but you can easily start auto-forwarding any new mails.
