    Migrating Unix Mailboxes to exchange 2007

    I'm currently using Microsoft Transporter Suite for Internet Mailboxes however when trying to migrating I get errors if I use POP as the method I get the error shown in mailmigrationerror.jpg if I use IMAP I get the error shown in mailmigrationerror2.jpg. Any ideas on how this could be solved?

    Both of those appear to be SSL errors. Are you using SSL encrypted POP/IMAP? Do you have the relevant security certificates installed? Are you using the FQDN of the mailserver (as it appears on the security certificate)?

    Just ideas mind, having not used the tool.

    There are other free tools that can migrate mail direct from Linux server to exchange using IMAP. I have used a good one in the past (several times) called IMAPcopy. IMAPcopy
    All you need is a big list of users to move in the IMAPcopy config file.

    To do an IMAP copy you must know all users passwords on both mail systems. This requires all of the Linux server user passwords to be reset (CSV) and use an administrator password for exchange. You can just use the administrator to connect to exchange IMAP apparently by doing the following.

    Specify a username in the following format:
    YourDomain/AdminUserName/UserMailbox
    • YourDomain is your domain,
    • AdminUserName is an Exchange Server user name with administrator rights to the
    user's mailbox that you wish to migrate, and
    • UserMailbox is the name of the user to migrate.
    Write in the password bit of IMAPcopy config script the password for the administrator account.

    So for example I would use this:

    Copy "me" "123456" "schooldomain/administrator/me" "654321"

    Yes, but sometimes you need the full email on Linux boxes. Also just looking again I think the slashes look the wrong way round so try it like this:

    Copy "me@school.co.uk" "123456" "schooldomain\administrator\me" "654321"

    Right it appears that if your on SP1 and not SP1 rollup update 4 or higher you can't login to other mailboxes unless you are using OWA imap and pop aren't supported for admin mailbox access to all. I'm about to update to SP1 rollup 4 and I'll let you know.

    I have just tested on my exchange server with the slashes looking like this \ and it all worked fine.

    The admin user account needs full control to the user's mailbox that you wish to migrate to. So check the permeations on the destination mailboxes for the admin account on the exchange server.

    Could you let me know how to grant full access to all mailboxes on exchange for the administrator account? I think i've done parts via ACL in Active Directory (from the exchange server) and I ran a command in Powershell but I can't get it to work?

    Just check one account first.
    So go into Active Directory, and open properties for a user.
    Then click Exchange advanced tab.
    Select mailbox rights button and all of the access rights are in there.


    You can set it at the server level for all users but can’t remember off of the top of my head where it is

    Administrator has full permissions to my account so it should work but doesn't ?

    Did you upgrade to Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Rollup Update 4? Because I just read this one:

    POP3 and IMAP4 clients cannot connect to a server that is running Exchange 2007

    Looks like microsoft stopd support and then put it back in!!!!!

    Also see this Microsoft artical: Error when you use an IMAP4 client or a POP3 client to log on to a delegate mailbox of Exchange Server 2007: "800cccd1"

    And just as a random thought give another test user full access to a user’s mailbox and try doing it with the test user. Microsoft might have restricted the bog standard administrator account.

    So try "schooldomain\test\me"
