    Help!!
    Sure it does not mean the password. It likes nice and secure passwords that contain at least 1 upper case character and 1 number (not to mention that it wants to be changed every 60 days)

    I went back and did it again and it went through. There arent any passwords in my CSV - should there have been? I just did username@domain, first name last name display name as I sent to you, @plexer
    So..it has given me temporary passwords - as admin am I changing these to their easymail passwords?Is that easy?

    If the current easymail passwords match the complexity requirements for Office 365 you could change them to that otherwise I'd store them and give them the new passwords for first login to Office 365.

    Allthough you'd have to logon as them to change them as changing passwords as admin just generates a new temporary one.

    No, they don't match the complexity. So does this mean that I will need their old easymail passwords for the migration but they will be using these temp ones (or whatever they change it to) after that?

    Indeed but I'd still be tempted to get a guinea pig to stick in as a migration test, they will still use easymail for their email it just means their mailbox will be duplicated in Office 365 and then you can show that all emails were successfully migrated.

    You can even use your e-mail account as the test to make sure the migration does actually work.

    Oh for heaven's sake
    It is now telling me that it cant create the emails as we have no valid licence. I followed the instructions and "bought" the free A2 licence for education and it all seemed fine. During the import it told me that the A2 for faculty licence was available - but only one NOW WHAT DO I DO

    Set a linux mail server and tell MS to go [censored] themselves?

    In 365 admin centre Go to Licensing
    In the subscriptions section how many A2 for faculty does it say you have? If it is 0, click on licenses and "purchase" the Office 365 Education A2 for Faculty 0.00/year for the number you need + 10

    Ta
    I thought I had put 100 but it said 10 - probably my fault.
    All done now - I've got the temp passwords and everything.

    Just out of interest, what web browser(s) do you use in school, as performance of OWA in some isn't great. Just something to take in to account if your end users are using solely webmail.
