      Importing emails from previous Bt Email account

      Hello,
      just transferring from BT to Sky as we speak and have my Sky email set up.
      I would like to import emails from an existing BT email account to one of the sub accounts.
      Does anyone know if this is possible (please don't recomment emailing them to myself as that's not helpful).

      Thanks

      How do you want to do this and where are the mails stored. You can transfer the mails from Outlook/Outlook Express to Thunderbird for example.

      Try setting up your email client to access your Sky account using IMAP, then drag and drop your old emails into the folders created for your Sky account. That worked well for me using Outlook, but it can take a while as you are actually uploading your emails from your computer to Sky's server. Another advantage is that you have an online back-up for all your emails. Storage limit is 10GB.
      Hope this helps
