    Recommend me a company to migrate our exchange to o365

    Im looking fo recommendations for a company to help/perform our migration from our old onprem exchange box to o365.

    We have dirsync working but im struggling to get rpc over http working t oactually do the migration. Ive followed the various guides but still no luck

    Setup is single exchange 2003 > Isa 2006 owa is working fine

    So im going to farm it out.

    We want to take all the staff email and start the students afresh

    Anybody got any recommendations ?

    Thanks

    Andy

    CloudMigrator365 springs to mind. There are lots. Try Microsoft Pinpoint - Select Country/Region.

    (Or something like Search Results on Microsoft Pinpoint)

    Or do a quick upgrade to Exchange 2010 then use that to push all the mailboxes to o365, probably cheaper and quicker in the long run, just need a meaty workstation to house an temporary install of the latest version of 2010.

    I've just done exchange 2003 to office 365 . If you do the exchange test to get exchange anywhere working it's fairly easy to migrate the emails over in few days. I just followed the staged migration guide and used the office 365 wizard with dirsync

    thanks for all the sugestions , we have done the connection test and I know where the problem is I just cant seem to fix it it that https over rpc is not working.
    @snagrat were in county Durham local would be good or even a remote session to help out thith the https>rpc bit
    @xenonive there is no exchange anywhere in 2003 it's rpc over https what gateway are you using ? as im sure it's an isa issue but cant find anything to help me

    very tempted to chuck up a 2010 box might have to start reading up on whats needed to do that asap

    cheers

    Sorry I meant Outlook Anywhere which is really just RPC over HTTP , I used this guide to get it to connect How can I configure RPC over HTTP/S on Exchange 2003 (single server scenario)? , I move the Exchange over in to open connection via ISA 2006 server. You shouldn't need any more ports opened over than port 80 and 443 , the ports in the guide are just for internal servers to talk to each other.

    Have you disabled pre-authentication on ISA for O365?
