Hi guys,

I have been using a demo version of Kerio Connect for the past few days as a temp stop gap while I rebuilt our exchange 2007 server. All users have only been given Webmail access to keep it simple.

The server is nearly alive again, so i need to copy each users email back to the exchange server.

Any ideas on the best way to do this.

The obvious way is to set each user up in Outlook and drop the emails into a PST maybe, then let them import, but this is a fair amount of work for me with 80 users.

Any other ideas prey tell.

I have been collecting all incoming mail in a catchall box too if a rule can be setup for this to redirect to the original recipient?

Thanks in advance

You're probably better off asking that in a dedicated MS Exchange forum. There are probably people here who have migrated from Kerio Connect to MS Exchange, but they are few and far between. Exchange used to have a tool to migrate mail from regular IMAP accounts. Is it no longer part of the Exchange package?

Let me summarize: You have planned to upgrade your old Exchange server to a new version (2007). While you are upgrading you have temporarily moved the users to Kerio. And now you don't know how to get them back on the upgraded Exchange server.

Shouldn't you have made a plan and tested this BEFORE you started moving people to Kerio. Sorry, but you should have asked the question before you actually started to kick your users off of the old Exchange. Embarassed

Anyhow, using the IMAP migration tool might be a good start.

The exchange server died, not upgraded. (See opening post) I needed a quick to setup temp solution. There hasn't been an upgrade. More a "Oh shit what just happened to that box. Where's all the email gone" kinda situation.

I think I'm just going to do rules and redirects within Apple Mail on mass.

Where do you get the IMAP migration tool from though?

Didn't read that your Exchange Server died. So all your users started on Kerio with zero mails/appointments/contacts?

Try to use the MS Transporter tools:

my unsolicited opinion:

I think it's not fair what you did, and as a system administrator, a very poor choice. You installed a TRIAL version of Kerio, that is meant to test its feature, not to be a transition solution on a production server (probable break of license agreement here). I suggest you get your disaster recovery plan up to speed quickly, I could've lose my job if I screwed up majorly like you did.

@id t: Kicking to people laying down is not the best, but I understand your feelings!

@NeilPotter: This is a huge pointer towards moving to another server, and with Kerio you even have the option og moving away from expensive Windows as well..

with that said, there are plenty of IMAP migration tools out there, Kerio even has one - but I think that is meant to go the other way. A simple Google for IMAP migration should get you plenty.
IMAP will not bring back over your Calendar & Contacts though...
