Moving CC email content to @myumanitoba

This document illustrates a method of moving email stored in your CC email account to your @myumanitoba email. These instructions assume that you have both a CC email account and a @myumanitoba account.


This method can be simplified into the following steps:

  1. Select an IMAP capable email client/program such as Thunderbird, Outlook, Mac Mail, or Windows Mail.
  2. Add both your CC and @myumanitoba accounts to your email client.
  3.  Drag-and-drop or copy the emails/folders you would like to keep on your @myumanitoba account

In the screenshot of Mozilla Thunderbird below, both @myumanitoba and CC email accounts are setup. With both accounts setup, messages and folders can be moved and copied from one account to another.

Selecting a capable email client

If you already have either your CC email account or @myumanitoba account setup in an email program you will only need to setup the account that is missing.

Below is a list of supported email clients with documentation:

  • Outlook (2010, 2013)
  • Outlook (2011 - Mac)
  • Windows Mail
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Mac Mail

Adding your @myumanitoba and CC accounts

The instructions for setting up CC email and @mymanitoba accounts are found below.
Both accounts need to be setup in the mail client you choose.

Moving or Copying Emails

Drag and drop folders you would like moved. Depending on the email client, you may only move one folder at a time.
If you prefer, you can also select individual messages (or groups of messages), and copy them from one folder to another.

You may find that a large quantity of mail, or individual messages with large attachments take a significant amount of time to copy. Cleaning up unwanted email, or sorting your folder by message size to remove large messages may make migrating your email go more quickly.

When finished

You will want to remove your CC email account from your email client once finished, as the CC email system will no longer be available after January 20, 2016.
