    Check your Live@Edu admin screens - there is an import template you need to use, so you get it in the correct format.

    There is a sample csv in the help for importing users.

    Just download that and enter your own details from your MIS system.

    It will tell you if anything is wrong.

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed, one last question if I migrate my users to this can they still use there internal email system whilst im trying this out cause the last thing I would want is it to go belly up and get burnt at the stake.

    Thank you

    Josh.

    Only if you put it on a separate domain name (thats what I did and made the changover really easy)

    We went from a .sch.uk to a .co.uk

    at the moment we have an in house system which uses pop and smtp.
    Reason I originally asked about this is that normal folk will want all their existing mail transferred to Live@Edu. If Thunderbird is set to download all mail from the POP3 server, then you have a problem - perhaps some Thunderbird expert will know better, but I'm not aware of a simple way to get mail stored in some Thunderbird format transferred to Live@Edu mailboxes, and that's 500-600 times over. I wouldn't want to do that if you were using Outlook and had PST files (which can be manually transferred slowly, one at a time via a copy of Outlook 2007 or later, preferably with PST Import rather than dragging & dropping).

    Sorry, but I genuinely can't think of a good way past this.


    There support has been superb for me.
    You must have asked easy questions or something. They've had me metaphorically banging my head on the wall a few times - having to explain how some not-that-unusual areas of e-mail work to someone who is supposed to be supporting the [bleeping] product doesn't make me happy. Nor does being told "we don't support X" (which for this "X" was nonsense) when they get stuck. It's always been slow for anything lacking a simple boiler-plate answer, but to date support has been much better once escalated to a more local engineer.

    --

    Setting up a basic functioning Live@Edu tenancy isn't hard. Getting current Live@Edu to do some advanced things can be interesting - probably the office365 movement thing, but a lot of the documentation doesn't fit the reality in front of you properly at the moment. Nor for that matter do some of the links in the ECP e.g. I can click a link to get an AdminAuditing report but it will be empty because that's turned off and the cmdlet to turn it on isn't there etc. And has anyone seen that FOPE yet?

    With Live@Edu is there a way of setting it up so I can get it running and use my email address as the guninea pig and then when I want to add the other users I just add them and deploy it?

    Once you change MX records All of your domain email goes to microsoft's systems, so you can't change some addresses and not others.

    You can however set up all your user accounts, and upload email before you swap over.

    I strongly suggest looking if you can get external IMAP support from your current mail server, as you could then use the microsoft migrtation tool for all existing email.

    Or do as I said earlier and register a new domain name for emails, then you can test it out.

    I would like to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread, I have got the users mailboxes up using CSV files which was a butt load of work but its done literally I have one thing leaft to do and I am wondering if anyone has done it yet? Have your organised your mailboxes into departments e.g. Admin, Teachers, Students if so how do you do it using Exchange online?

    The way to test this fully without disturbing your current e-mail is to go buy a cheap domain from somewhere that gives you sufficient access to the DNS to create the (new style) MS verification TXT record , MX records etc. You add that to your tenancy as an accepted domain, create a mailbox account for that new domain name and start mailing etc. Remove associated mailboxes and that accepted domain later.

    Organise mailboxes where? You can't do that in most places you can see them, it's just one big flat A-Z GAL, or rather the first 500 if you have more users. What you can usefully do is set a mailbox custom attribute when creating accounts (but not with the GUI import) to indicate whether it's staff, student, etc. You can then use that to make dynamic distribution groups, run powershell commands to do things to just one set of user type etc. There's a bit of a learning curve here, but I think it's worth getting to grips with for future convenience.

    Yes we set the "company" field to Student or Teacher. Might be helpful one day.

    Our student login names are also alphabetic depending on year groups so that makes it easy to sort.

    ForceChangePassword set to 1 in the CSV will do it
