Default Forwarding all emails in an Outlook Web Access account to gmail

I need to forward all the emails (500+) in Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2003 account that is due to expire in a few days to my gmail account.

However, the rules tab in MOWA 2003 only has options for setting up rules forwarding incoming emails, while I need to forward all existing emails - any advice?

I know in Oultook Express and Windows Live Email they can be applied retroactively. I'm not familiar with the application you are using.

One thing I will say is Gmail may flag your account if it gets 500 emails at once and bounce them, they are commonly used by spammers.

Good point(s)

I'm not sure about the web version of Outlook, but in the full version you can run an inbound rule once it's been created.

You could create a new folder for messages that have been sent to the new address, and then create a rule that forwards email, and then moves it to that folder.

That would keep you from having to forward everything at once.

Do you have (or can you get) POP3 or IMAP access to your Outlook account? If so, just set up a desktop mail app with both accounts, and move your mail from one account to the other.

If you're using Outlook Web Access, that means you're talking to an MS Exchange server to get your email. As the previous post states, talk to the administrator of that Exchange server, and see if you can use some other client to talk to the Exchange server. For instance, using MS Outlook (the one that comes in MS Office) you could easily create a rule that just took every email (which includes the ones you've already received) and forwards it to another address. You could also download them off the server with Outlook, or an IMAP or POP3 client.
