And just 5-6 years back when in.com was new, a person I knew chose in.com OVER gmail.com! :D

That time I suggested him NOT to create in.com account but he did not listen!

Now after 5-6 years, many of his important data is on their server.

Plus many official / important sites he has used his in.com account!

Now he will have to change it everywhere.

That person called me to help him transfer his e-mails to Gmail!! :D

So I checked and SHOCKED that in.com does not give POP access!!! (not even paid one!)

Complete non-sense!

Not offering POP3 (even as premium feature) itself is sign of "DONT USE our service"!!

Yes so to migrate them all to gmail. I will have to first setup mailbox in Linux. Configure in thunderbird. Configure IMAP in gmail and then copy-paste! 100s of e-mails everyday. (I think gmail has limitation of X number of e-mails per day)

Well you can do it using mutt as well (very powerful text based e-mail client)

But I prefer thunderbird as its graphical in nature and u can simply drag-and-drop

So this is the In.com's idea of providing download of your mail. Facepalm.



And the html itself is in such a bad shape. Like coded by a newbie. Individual mails have no link to go back to the inbox.

How to read emails? Just click and read? Does that mean no way EASY way to migrate it to something else? (like gmail/yahoo?)

Twitter gives you a similar export file. BUT the difference is that their edition is a fully functional web app and has JSON files as well. You can even search through your database using their exported data. In.com? This is the worst possible way of offering data export.

And instead of writing code to convert all data in HTML, they could simply have picked up an OPEN SOURCE POP3 server and implemented that.

Further if I wanted HTML version I could have simply used "wget" software and downloaded them all.


On 2nd note it may just be that they themselves used "wget"
