Web based email

I decided to switch to using the web interface for mail, exclusively.  This was working fine without me having to do anything, but I didn't have access to my archive of old mail.  So I decided to copy all of my old mail so I would easily be able to search through it.

The steps weren't exactly straight forward, but this is what worked for me:

  1. Created a Smart Mailbox that contained all of the mail sent or received before I started using Google Apps.

  2. Saved the messages into a single mbox

  3. Send the messages with GMail Loader.

There was one issue that I encountered was that I tried to have the messages sent through my hosting provider.  It has a 1000 daily outbound smtp limit.  So it took about 6 days for all of the messages to be received.  (I should have read the documentation for GMail Loader, and there are instructions to avoid this problem.)
