Hi All, I'm trying to get my old ntlworld email transferred to a new gmail address before it gets switched off at the end of this month but I seem to be having nothing but problems. These are the 2 ways i've tried and the problems i had.
When I try to do it by logging into my ntlworld account on virginmedia.com and adding a new email account, i get authentication errors saying that it can't log into the gmail account. Every time I try I get messages on gmail saying that they've blocked a suspicious log in attempt, I always click the link in the email and confirm it was me in the hope it will let me in if I try again but it makes no difference. I have ensured that access for less secure apps in enabled on the gmail as well as ensuring that pop is enables for all mail.
I have also tried the other way, logging into the new gmail and going to settings, accounts and import and doing it from there. When it asks for credentials it doesn't pick up ntlworld settings automatically so i have to enter the new pop3 settings. I have tried pop3.ntlworld.com and email@example.com and I get errors saying that the server couldn't be located and that the password is incorrect (I know that the password is correct).
I don't really know what to do now, I have a lot of emails i don't want to loose so this is really frustrating. If anyone can make any recommendations it would be appreciated.
