How it works?
CodeTwo Office 365 Migration is a mailbox migration tool that is installed within the source server’s domain. To start using it, just open the program’s main window and click Create a new migration job. This will initiate a wizard, which will guide you through the whole setup.
The first thing to do is connect to the source Exchange Server mailbox database using a domain admin’s account. Next, decide if you want to migrate all mailboxes and public folders at once (default setting) or limit the data scope, and configure a connection to the target Office 365 organization.
CodeTwo Office 365 Migration comes with the capability to automatically create mailboxes in Office 365 and match them with source mailboxes. To complete these actions you can either use default settings, or define what source and target server data they should be based on.
Other available migration job settings include scheduling the activity times of the migration job, limiting the age and type of items and setting the number of concurrent mailbox migrations. CodeTwo Office 365 Migration can also rewrite email addresses from the EX format to SMTP, which is useful when you migrate from older Exchange versions.
When the migration job has been configured and all mailboxes have been matched with their target counterparts, you can start migrating your mailboxes and public folders to Exchange Online right away.
Whenever CodeTwo Office 365 Migration finishes copying data to the destination Office 365 organization, you can easily check if it has completed without any problems by checking the detailed reports, which are generated on several levels - starting from single mailbox contents all the way to whole migration batches.
