Migrating from Gmail to O365 – Step by Step

leave a comment »

Hello everyone,

Today’s post is going to take a different approach. It’s a video tutorial. The session is going to be a full step by step guide that describes how you can migrate from a gmail environment to an Office 365 environment using an IMAP migration process.

You can use the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to migrate user email from Gmail, Exchange, and other email systems that support IMAP migration. When you migrate the user’s email by using IMAP migration, only the items in the users’ inbox or other mail folders are migrated.

An administrator performs an IMAP migration to Office 365. All email, but not contacts or calendar information, can be migrated for each mailbox.

Note:

  • It is required that you create a mailbox for each user before you migrate their email from the gmail account.
  • You can migrate a maximum of 500,000 items from a user’s mailbox (emails are migrated from newest to oldest)
  • The biggest email you can migrate is 35 MB.
  • You can only migrate items in a user’s inbox or other mail folders. This type of migration doesn’t migrate contacts, calendar items, or tasks.
  • Migration provisioning requires the user passwords or delegated access to user mailboxes using administrator credentials.

 

Watch-out for a step by step guide in the near future. If you do encounter any errors, please do comment below. Cheers!!
