WorldPosta migration tool will help you to transfer all your Mails, Folders, and subfolders from your GSuite accounts to WorldPosta.
GSuite organizes all emails under labels, these labels are treated like folders when you migrate from GSuite. Since more than one label can be applied to an email, the email appears in more than one folder.
When you migrate from GSuite to WorldPosta, it’ll be a duplication of email under different folders, based on the labels of the email in GSuite.
Example: if an email in GSuite has 2 labels, the email will be transferred 3 times, if the email has labels like (Work and Urgent) it’ll be migrated under a folder named Work and another folder named Urgent.
To avoid this, keep the overlapping labels in your Gmail account to a minimum.
