Thus, Chargeback is also called as Responsibility Accounting.]

[Bandwidth – It is the transmission capacity of a computer network.]
- Cloud syncing is done through an application.

But Gmail to Gmail transfer? How is this possible? Below are the steps to Backup from Gmail to Gmail. It doesn’t need any add-ons. You can directly in the cloud.
STEP 1 – A new Gmail account has to be created.
STEP 2 – Click on to settings
STEP 3 – Accounts and Imports Tab
STEP 4 – Import mails and contacts
STEP 5 – You would see a pop-up window.
STEP 6 – Type the existing Gmail account.
(From where you want to import the messages into new account)
STEP 7 – Sign in your credentials.
STEP 8 – Now, allow the Shuttle cloud app to access your Gmail and Google contacts data.
After the eighth step, your authentication will be checked.
STEP 9– Soon after the authentication is done, click the “start import button”.
Your migration is started
What about this process if your PC shutdowns in the midway. Never ever worry about it. The migration takes place in the cloud. You can close your windows, log out the browser. Nothing can stop its functioning.
STEP 10 – You will find a new label in your new Gmail account. This is the indication that your migration had been completed.
What about the new label? It has your entire imported data.
Shuttle cloud? What is that?
It is leading Emails and contact import. It has more than 200 email providers as their clients. When Google chose it, they would be leaders in their particular market. Do you think their work is monotonous and their work seems to take place just a little part? Not at all!! (It has 200 different email providers with different set of characteristics.) Complicating and challenging. Isn’t?
Statistics of Shuttle cloud:
A migration platform that migrate 3 million contacts and 30 million emails every day. It has all the data encrypted for security. The scalability is so high that it can handle up to 6TB per hour, Being a single company and a great idea, it does not limit its method to one in importing. You can import your emails and file attachments via two methods, which are as below:
- Shuttle cloud hosted migration portals
- Shuttle cloud APIs
You have another option where you can cancel the access to the service. After the completion of the migration, you can visit myaccount.google.com/permissions –through this you can cancel the access to the service. Do you remember the authentication process? It happens with the help of Google OAuth. Google OAuth – It is used by the Google for authentication and authorization. This enables a third party to have limited access as per the need of the work to be done. Thus, if Shuttle cloud can import emails and file attachments, it can happen only after the authentication of Google OAuth.
There are 4 roles that have to be present for this authentication to occur. They are,
- Resource Owner
- Resource Server
- Authorization Server
The client would request for an Authorization to the resource owner. The client would receive the authorization and that is the credential to ask for an access token. That authenticates the authorization and presents authorization grants. If valid, it issues an access token. So never ever be scared of security issues.
Finally, I gave you a cool way to use cloud storage, cloud back up and cloud sync. Make your work better with better space and use the available technology with all features that it has. With the steps provided, manage, say 5 Gmail accounts, make use of all available space as import became easy than ever before!!!
