IMAP to POP
I am currently using IMAP. Rackspace hosts my email. I want to change ISP's. I understand that my Rackspace emails will disappear once I delete my Rackspace account and they will not be uploaded to the new ISP.
I need to have access to all my old emails and I don't care about the limitations of POP.
Before I make the move, can I switch from IMAP to POP and download all my emails? Will this retain the file structure - in particular, "inbox" and "sent"
If that works, I'll set up the new ISP for POP. Will new emails be appended to my exiting inbox and sent folders?
Yes, you would download each separately.Прочитайте этот ответ в контексте 👍 0

You might try file>offline>downloadsync to see if that retrieves all your IMAP messages. If so, you could then create a Local Folder and copy the folders there after the download to ensure they're safe. Once you have them all copied to local folders, you could close the IMAP account. No, the saved folders would not automatically be appended to new folders when you create new account.
Thanks for your reply.
Will that keep the inbox separate from the sent box?
Yes, you would download each separately.
