    Unhappy Derby City schools and Environ issues.

    Hi everyone,

    we have jumped ship (along with 20 or so others), from Derby Cities network and have a temporary domain ready and set-up for an Office 365 migration.

    The E mail service is presently hosted on Exchange 2003 servers by Environ.

    I have requested info as to whether the Exchange servers have IMAP enabled and can I get the settings so I can sync the accounts ready for the switch over, not having much luck (maybe unsurprisingly).
    Any other way of doing it from the OWA with little control over that part?

    Derby City also want to charge nearly 600 to migrate the accounts, due to "the way the Environ network is set up."

    I have explained all I want are the IMAP settings then the domain releasing.

    Anybody else having similar problems?

    Response: How about you give me a valid technical reason for a 600 charge, rather than what appears to be "our stuff wasn't designed with migration in mind?"

    What is Environ?

    A Private company hosting your exchange? Derby City Councils name for their network?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Yeah did the 600 for what exactly? - They are thinking about a response, presently waiting for a "paper" from Derby City and a contact number/name at Environ.
    Environ run Derby cities network - They do the whole kaboodle.

    It looks like the city network has been made up up of bolt ons and sticking plasters, so they are a bit stuck how to manage the exodus.
