How long does it take to transfer mail to another account?

asked Jun 3, 2013 in Email by mike231 (2,480 points)
I want to transfer all my emails from my Yahoo account to Gmail. I selected the option (leave mail on server) and started the process of transferring the emails. However U am getting a message saying “checking mail” and it stayed for a long time. How long is it suppose to take to check ? is this a normal process or is it hanging, since it hasn’t even changed the message to actual transfer?
Can anyone please advice?

It should take 15-30 minutes. But it depends on the size of your email. I would suggest you wait and let it take its time. If it hangs for hours then you might want to stop the process , log out and try again after some time.
