I have some very big mailboxes i need to migrate from our old exchange server to kerio. A few around 8GB and even a 19GB mailbox (crazy!) will this be even worth trying?

Then i guess the next question would be what to do with it once it's in kerio, since i would like to keep a cap of 2GB per user.
any ideas?

I have seen the migration tool work great, and I've seen it choke (that was a long time ago, maybe around 6.0.1).

As for what to do about your users, it depends on what is acceptable at your company. You can help them trim down their email and archive it (you didn't say what platform your clients are), or you can set hard limits and not let them receive any email until they get under 2GB.

Archiving is the most important step you can take to optimize your server and provide redundancy. In addition, your end users need to find a fast solution to searching through thousands of emails and gigabytes of files.

If you have 19GB mailboxes in general thats very large. You may want to have those users archive there mail off the server and find an appliance to handle individual users pst files for that. I did a lot here that are 6 GB and it worked fine

That is the main issue. What do you do with it later.

The problem is I know I can't trust you with my content or any hosted provider. I know my IT team I can trust. BTW there is many solutions to help him do what he needs. This forum was created to help people solve problems not sell your services.

I will give the migration tool a swing this week, will let you know how it works out!

To reduce user mail box sizes on the server i'm thinking of just copying there older mail locally to there machine.
