I have a POP work email that I had setup on Thunderbird and I set it up to auto forward to my personal gmail account (as a backup). I created a new gmail account as a way to use my work POP email account within the gmail client (I like the interface the best).

Is there a way to transfer specific emails (i.e. the work emails that were forwarded to my personal gmail account) from my personal gmail account to this new gmail account?

I went into my personal gmail, searched & selected all emails that were forward from my work email, but I do not know how to transfer them to my new gmail account?

Please advise and thank you in advance!

This is for transferring ALL mail. I, too, need to transfer certain messages between accounts, but definitely not all of them. I specifically need to transfer work messages from my personal account to my work account, which is accessible by my boss & network administrators, & I therefore don't want literally all of my mail from the past decade ending up in that account.

As the question asks, is there a means of migrating SPECIFIC messages between Gmail accounts?

Can't just forward them from your account to the work account?

I could, but I don't want to because:

1) There are hundreds; &
2) many are long back& forth threads that I was added to mid-way, so the email indentations from forwarding/replying is already are already unwieldy.

Microsoft Outlook or other similar client.

Access both accounts.
Select and copy from one to the other.
Delete from the original.
