How well your email is organized after migration depends on how well it is organized BEFORE migration. This checklist will help ensure you have a smooth transition to your new Google Mail account.
Exchange Outlook/Entourage EMAIL
To ensure a successful migration, you will need to…
o Any rules that you have for email
o Email signatures
o Personal Contact Groups
o Delegated mailbox settings
o Category Definitions or Category Assignments
Folders vs. Labels – “Folders” and subfolders map to “Labels” in Google email. For example, a message located in a folder hierarchy of Projects>Datatel>HR would migrate to Google with the label "Projects/Datatel/HR". Once your mail has migrated, you can manage labels in your Google email settings. To learn more about labels watch the 8-minute video segment "Labels vs Folders".
MOVING PERSONAL / ARCHIVED (PST) FILES - Deadline May 24, 2012
Your Exchange mailbox storage has been increased to accommodate the addition of PST files.
IF you have personal/archived (PST) files that you’d like to include in the migration, we recommend the following:
NOTE - The desktop mail client will be removed shortly after Go-Live. Therefore, in order to retain access to your archived messages, you will need to move them to the Exchange server no later than end of workday, Thursday, May 24th.
