How to import all your old emails into Yahoo Mail Beta or GMail

I have successfully imported 10 years of emails from MS Outlook into my Gmail and Yahoo Mail Beta accounts.

Here is the quick and dirty on how to do it. Create a temporary email account that has both IMAP and POP access. Setup this temporary IMAP email address in OUTLOOK. You will have a new folder in OUTLOOK for this temp account. Basically, every email you drag or copy into the temp account folder will be uploaded to the temp account server by the IMAP connection.

Now you just go to GMail or Yahoo Mail, setup a POP connection to that same temp account and let the emails start flowing in. Bang, 10 years of emails, accessible from any internet device.
