    Very true but you can use a special url to give them the light version web app if that's the case and that's similar I guess to the current easymail functionality.

    We use IE because of easymail- attachments are not visible in Chrome etc - that could change if we aren't using it anymore, I suppose

    Ok
    Now I have a meeting with the DH tomorrow to discuss the migration so I need to have all my ducks in a row.
    I need a definitive list as to what I will need to do now (and how) and also information about how migration can be done by individuals.
    Also, I need confirmation of the fact that contacts will not be imported

    Finally I need to migrate one email account to show him. I was thinking of one of mine? I have read over this thread but I am still not quite sure how to do it right.
    I would be grateful for some help please? I know I have been very needy over this but I am so grateful. Especially @plexer who has been on here, and PM, and email to try and sort me out.

    You create a csv file which you know the structure of and put in the details for your office 365 account and your easymail details then you upload that in the migration section and run it.

    Migrations run until you tell them to stop.

    I have just looked all over for the migration tool but cant find it - am I that thick or are they making it difficult deliberately?

    That's lovely
    But
    Where or when does the MX record come in. If I do the migration without the mx record, what happens - nothing? All mail goes to both places? What?
    What do I send over in terms of MX record and do I have to wait until the head etc have done their thing
    How do they do their thing - they wil want to know

    Will their contacts be migrated? Some info says yes, some no

    If you don't change the MX record email will be delivered to easymail as it is now, the migration run in Office 365 then connects to the accounts and pulls the email in to the users Office 365 account, this continues until you delete the migration job so you could run it forever it you wanted.

    Once users are using Office 365 and happy you can then have the MX record changed so that email is delivered direct to Office 365 and at this point you could then decommission the easymail service.

    Once you have setup the accounts in Office 365 they can login and the head etc... can add the easymail account as a connected account in order for their existing emails to be sucked in to their Office 365 account.

    Without the live MX record, the migration will do nothing other than replicate your e-mail in 2 places. New e-mails will arrive in your Easymail account, and then the migration synchronisation will copy it over if it is still running.

    Once the MX record has been updated, all e-mails will arrive in the Office 365 mailbox for your users regardless if the old e-mails are there or not. You can continue to migrate until such time as the easymail accounts are deleted.

    Admittedly our old e-mail server was onsite, but we kept it running until October to give our staff 3 months to login to create an export of their contacts (and we went live with 365 at the start of August)
