The Shaw Email Transfer program allows you to copy your saved emails and contacts from your current email address to your new Shaw Webmail account. This includes email addresses from Telus, Sasktel and MTS*. In addition to notifying your contacts of your new email address, the Shaw Email Transfer program will also automatically forward emails to your new account for up to 30 days, or until your non-Shaw email address is closed.

 

If you are currently using a webmail Service (internet based email) Shaw Email Transfer will allow you to transfer the contents of your Inbox, Drafts, Sent and Trash folders. If you are using an email client such as Mac Mail, Outlook or Windows Live Mail you will not be able to transfer your address book or emails as these are stored locally on your computer.
