You can indeed migrate all of the contents of the mailbox of the user to Office 365 overtime by making sure that you use a staged migration. It will undoubtedly prove to be successful, and you will have a well-organized mailbox. This guide will walk you through all of the tasks which are involved with the staged email migration. When you are fully comfortable, and if you know the contents properly, you can begin migrating the mailboxes from one to another. Here are some tasks that you need to do for migration.
- Make sure that you prepare a staged migration.
- You should verify your own domain.
- You should use the directory syncing to create users in Office 365.
- Make sure that you create a list of all of mailboxes to migrate.
- You should also connect Office 365 to your main email system.
- Then select the migrate option and start migrating all of your mailboxes.
- Make sure that you start the stages migration batch.
- You should also convert the on-premises mailboxes to mail-enabled users so that all of the migrated users can easily get their mail.
- You should also route your email directly to Office 365, and that is very important.
- You should also be sure to delete the staged migration batch.
- Finally, you should complete the post migration tasks.
You should use directory synchronization in order to create users in Office 365. Make sure that you create an on-premises user in the Office 365 organization. You will indeed need to license all of the users after they are created. You also will have 30 days to add the licenses after the users are created. After you successfully identify all of the users whose on-premises mailboxes will want to migrate to Office 365, you will have a file to create a migration batch. There is actually no limit for the number of the mailboxes that you can actually migrate to Office 365 when you use a stages migration. The CSV file for the migration batch will contain a maximum of around 2000 rows. If you want to migrate more than the 2000 mailboxes, you can create an additional CSV file by making use of each of the files to create a new migration batch.
A migration endpoint will indeed contain all of the settings and even credentials if needed to connect to the on-premises server which hosts the mailboxes which you are indeed migrating over to Office 365. For the kind of stages migration, you would indeed create an Outlook Anywhere migration endpoint. The endpoint is indeed created to use for all of the migration batches.
