How do I decrypt emails and move them to another account?
Last Updated 2 years ago
This needs to be done on a Windows computer.
(if you dont have a Windows computer, we are working on another solution)
1. First you need to install Thunderbird Legacy + Enigmail (see our other guides)
Thunderbird portable Legacy
Instructions on how to setup your account in Thunderbird, scroll down to the bottom part: https://support.countermail.com/kb/faq.php?id=14
2. Create all local folders in Thunderbird.
3. Setup a Message filter in Thunderbird, see the picture below how the message filter should look like. It's located under the Tools menu -> Message filterClick on the image for a larger picture
Follow numbers #1 to #10
4. After the decryption is done, setup your new account in Thunderbird.
Use Thunderbirds Copy-feature to copy the emails from the local folders to the new account folders.
