Step by Step Process to Transfer Gmail Messages
#1. Login to your Gmail account from which you want to make the transfer to a new one.
#2. Now install Gmail Auto-Forward add-on.

#7. Under Second Rule: Add your new email address to which you want to transfer your old emails. Set Sender’s Alias. Also, can check if you want old attachments to be mailed to your new email address or not.
After setting your desired label selection you need to save the setting by pressing “Create Rule” at last of the form.
Now all the manual part is done. The Google Script will run in background and auto-forward all your emails one-by-one. All the successfully processed emails will be labeled as “Forward” to keep the track on sent messages.
Depending on the size of your selected label or mailbox the process of transferring the messages will take hours or days. Because you may be aware of the Gmail’s daily mail sending limit. It allows us to send emails up to 500 recipients per day. But as here we are doing the transfer with one recipient only then there will be no delay regarding Gmail’s daily sending limit. To transfer all your emails remember to select “Inbox” while selecting label under the first rule. You can also “Manage Rules” by following same steps to Create New Rules.
Hope this will solve your big issue in transferring emails from one account to another account.
