So you’ve finally decided to change your webmail service and migrate to Gmail, but you don’t want to lose your old messages and the address book. Gmail offers a mail fetcher feature that works with all mail services that support POP, including Hotmail, but you can’t use it for regular Yahoo Mail accounts.

As previously anticipated, Google released a tool that lets you import contacts and mail from popular services like Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, AOL Mail and from ISPs like Verizon, Comcast, Earthlink. If you don’t see a tab titled “Accounts and import” in Gmail’s settings, you need to wait until the new features are enabled in your account.
