so the first two columns are identical? with just the easymail password in the third one?
Sorry but I really need to get it right
(and so does @speckytecky who is hiding behind me)
This as a migration csv is successfully syncing the account firstname.lastname@example.org in to the slong@waylandacademy..... email account.
As you are keeping your email addresses the same then it would be:
@witch If I remember rightly from my last place when we did this, we used the full usernames (email@example.com) and it worked fine. If you look at SWGfL's guides on how to link up an Easymail account to MS Outlook, you'll notice that it too requires the full username format when setting up the account.
I can only presume that your comment about only having to put the first part in when logging onto the Webmail is that the rest is probably embedded with the code, so it's done automatically for you - makes sense given that I doubt most of your colleagues would want to type out the entire domain name *shrugs* Just a guess, I don't know how they've set it up.
EDIT: Sorry @plexer for repeating what you've already confirmed, hadn't noticed your posts before jumping the gun to Post Reply. My bad!

Well, I've sent out the email asking people to confirm their email passwords....soon be on the way to migration...gulp!
Is there an idiots guide to exporting contacts from Easymail and into Office365? I have already had one teacher moan that it will take her all day - all I said was to keep a note of her contacts just in case!
Easymail, top right click Options
Scroll down to Export contacts and click Export Contacts button which exports it as a csv file.
To import into 365 we told our staff to use Outlook and provided the attached guide.

Not using RM anymore but look in settings for extract contacts as csv.
I got all staff to do the same as you when we moved to Google apps for Ed. Out of 5 schools I had to help 1 teacher.
just found this in my notes
Login to your old Easymail
Click ‘Export Contacts’ which should download a file to your computer.
Ok, In Office 365 click on the "People" link at the top
Then click on the cog in the top right and select Import Contacts
right,I have all the email passwords.
I have just been asked to create two new accounts on the network though. Is it easy to add those to the Office 365 account?
Will do the easymail thing next week (gulp)

You log in to the Office 365 and just click the + symbol to add a single user.

I have hopefully done the email migration following plexer's excellent instructions.
An hour in and it hasnt completed one email yet - how long is this going to take!!
Also, I have to explain how to migrate one user to the SLT as they are doing it themselves. Do they follow the same instructions or is there another way for individual email accounts?

Every single one failed.
This is the message:
We're having trouble connecting to the server for this account. Please make sure the server details are correct.
Please, @plexer @Boredguy anyone - can someone tell me what is wrong. It accepted the csv file which was as follows:
EmailAddress username password
firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com password
Can anyone shed light on what on earth is going wrong? I have no idea
