Note: When syncing email data from a mailbox on Gmail, only the Gmail/All Mail folder and its contents will be synced. This ensure that all mail (except the ones moved to the Trash or Spam folders) from the account are synced without any duplicates.

The parameters to be used when Gmail is the source are as follows:

FIELD NAME DESCRIPTION SAMPLE VALUE
Source user id User id on Gmail domain whose data needs to be imported
(Note: The id should not contain the domain name.)
"john"
Source domain Source domain on Gmail "baya.com"
Source user password Password of the user on the Gmail domain
Note: Passwords cannot contain special characters mentioned in the list given here. Update the password before submitting the request.
