Hey Email is one of the premium email services developed by Basecamp (A US-based Company) in June 2020. One can easily access their Hey email account through Hey.com as well as dedicated apps for Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, etc.

But recently, there are many users who want to migrate from Hey webmail service to several platforms. Recently, we received similar requests from our old client.

Hi, I’m using Hey premium email services for the last year. It is a business account provided by my current company. But recently I get a job in a new company. That’s why I need to migrate Hey Emails to Yahoo Account (my personal account). But Hey doesn’t support IMAP and POP3 options. It only supports SMTP for accessing emails from other sources. Does anyone know how can I do this?

Because of the service’s vertical integration, Hey Mailbox can’t be incorporated into other email services or desktop-based email clients. Also, it doesn’t support IMAP and POP3 protocols. That’s the reason a huge number of users want to migrate their Hey emails to another place as a backup copy.
