Once configured, Easy Switch works in the background so that you can use your computer as normal while your emails are transferred from your old account to Proton Mail. 

Easy Switch can transfer data from up to two different email accounts at the same time, but you can only run one transfer at a time from the same account.

If you want to run two imports from the same account, you’ll need to wait until the first import is completed before initiating a second import.

You can also use Easy Switch to import your contacts(new window) and calendars(new window).
