    Moving Mail boxes from RM EasyMail to Gmail

    Hello,

    I have moved a few small schools over to Google Apps for Education and as the mailboxes of the old system have always been very small I just got the users to forward any mail from one account to the other.

    I have been asked to move a large school where the main mailboxes all have a large amount of emails making the forwarding method a no go.

    Anyone got any ideas how I can forward the contents of mailboxes from RM EasyMail to Google Apps for Education mail boxes?

    I had a similar issue going from RM easymail to Live@edu. I ended up setting the easymail to forward incoming mail to the new live@edu account, exporting users mail to a pst, connect outlook to live@edu account, connect the pst and then move the mail manually. Wasn't too much hassle.

    This doesn't sound practical with more than a handful of mailboxes

    Maybe not but it worked for me. We had around 15 heavily used mailboxes the rest were hardly used at all.

    How would you have done this?

    I have no idea. We have at least 40 to shift which is why I'm watching this thread.

    When you say large amount, just how large are we talking?

    I may be facing a similar senario soon. I have not got far in finding a solution, but I did think this blog post offered one potential solution - using a command line tool called Imapsync.

    Just discovered that the Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange utility also supports generic IMAP servers as well, so that might work too - confusing name. You can give it a CSV of user names and passwords to migrate.
