Migrating email from Exchange email system to muConnect powered by Google using the Uploader (PC)
Solution:


Note: Miami is partnering with Google to provide faculty, staff, emeriti and retirees with Google Apps for Education, including Gmail to manage email accounts, Google Calendar and a range of other Google tools. On or around December 21, 2012, all email, calendar and contacts will be copied from Exchange to the new Google domain MiamiOH.edu. Please see www.miamiOH.edu/gogoogle for more information.


The instructions detailed below will allow you to migrate existing email located in your Exchange mailbox to your muConnect powered by Google account. Messages will be migrated, along with any selected folders, which will be converted to labels.

The import process may take several hours, so we recommend that you plug your computer into a power outlet and that you allot the proper amount of time for the operation to complete. Due to the amount of time it takes to complete mail upload, we strongly recommend that you use a wired network connection.


Note: This process is only intended for users who previously used Microsoft Outlook 2003 or 2007 to check email. In order to complete this instructions, Outlook must be set up on the computer you are using to migrate mail. If you are interested in an easier way to transfer your old email, please refer to the IT Help case titled Migrating email from the Miami Exchange email system to muConnect powered by Google (POP3).
