    I had mistakenly moved my gmail to - mistake was that I completely cleaned-out my entire Gmail account! I fixed Gmail so that it copies the emails as they go to, leaving it also in Gmail.

    Now I want to restore the 3,000 emails I had cleared out of Gmail BACK into Gmail...can I do this?

    Can I move them somehow from back into Gmail with one sweep, just as I had moved them all into from Gmail? Or am I skrw'd and have to move them individually by forwarding?

    Anybody have the same issue or answer? Thanks much, -Joe

    You have to have Gmail setup as an IMAP and not as POP3, otherwse you are indeed screwd. POP3 is a desktop centric approach and not server side like IMAP is.
