    Boss wants Office 365
    He's been prevaricating for months because he refuses to give me his and the DH and Office passwords, even though I have pointed out that as an Office 365 admin I can see all the emails anyway. Now easymail are going to enforce a password change soon, if we don't move I will have to spend another goodness knows how long getting all 62 new passwords at the beginning of next term.
    Now - 9 days before the end of term he wants to get it done - so initially I thought I would amalgamate all my individual csvs to clear it up and then I could create a new one with the 4 missing accounts when I get given the info.
    Then I have to get out all the Office 365 passwords and field the "how do I get in to my emails" questions
    As well as creating all the new users for next year and getting three new laptops (which may or may not be able to use a current image - bet I know which!) on line and sorted before the end of term. All on three hours a day alongside the usual raft of problems and such

    I don't mind taking a look. I've done lots of EasyMail migration without any issues.

    But would involve giving me access to your account of course.

    Feel free to PM me if you want me to look.

    Thanks
    My immediate response was "well, bully for you - I'm just stupid then" but I think that might be because I am really really um annoyed with this load of..data

    I've left now - will be back there tomorrow at about 11am
    I'll have a look and see what is going on then - I deleted everything and started again when I left

    I was replying to the Powershell failure document you posted up earlier.
    If you launch the Powershell application as you have been doing, but instead of using the normal $cred=Get-Credential and $Session = New-PSSession line use the 3 lines below it might allow you to connect (assuming your able to browse the internet via Internet Explorer at present on that computer running Powershell)

    Code:
    $cred=Get-Credential
    $proxysettings = New-PSSessionOption -ProxyAccessType IEConfig
    $session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri "https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/" -Credential $cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection -SessionOption $proxysettings

    Yay - it all seems to be working now. I just restarted everything

    Does anyone know what I can do about "sent items" in Easymail? Obviously they are not appearing in Office 365 but there is some important stuff in there?

    I thought it did import but under a different folder name. Like Outbox rather than Sent Items?

    I believe they just get merged with the inbox.... Or at least my assistant thinks that happened when we did the test migration for our primary school he has the pleasure of looking after.

    You are right - they do. That's stupid - they are emails that have gone out, not come in!
    He's not going to like that...

    It is possible the situation has changed since I did my migration, but here's how it worked then.

    EasyMail stores sent mail in a folder called "outbox", this is copied to the "outbox" folder in Office 365 by the migration. However in Outlook/Exchange/Office 365, the "outbox" folder is a special folder used for items being sent to the mail server, and so it is hidden from view in the normal Office 365 mail web page. That is, all the email is there, just in a folder you cannot see!

    I expect the reason you are seeing the sent items in the inbox is because you have the conversation view turned on, which integrates your replies to an email conversation with the emails they sent regardless of which folder the emails are in.

    You can view the hidden "outbox" folder by viewing the "light" version of the outlook web page. Get to this by logging in then pasting the following link into your address bar:
    https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?layout=light
    You should see an outbox link in the list of folders on the left hand side. You can select any mail left there and move them into sent items.

    This may be rather laborious with a large number of accounts. I wrote a program that did this move automatically using EWS, but Microsoft changed things and broke the program, and I was not able to get it working again.

    I think it must have changed thought because when I log on to the "light" version, the outbox is still empty
    If I send an email it goes into sent items, which is also empty before that
    That's a much better view though than the normal one - might change my shortcut to that, thanks

    Do your sent items appear in the inbox in the light view? That does not have conversation view, so if they are still in the inbox there then that actually is the folder where they have been put.

    And in that account the sent emails appear in the inbox in light view?
