Hi,

I manage IT for a small 25 person company and we are currently using Microsoft Online Hosted Exchange (BPOS). For various reasons, we would like to bring email back in-house and I'm considering Kerio instead of Exchange. Does the Exchange Migration Tool work with hosted Exchance accounts? If not, what would be the best method to migrate?

Thanks.

Yes. It does. It works pretty much the same as migrating an "in-house" Exchange server to Kerio, but it is much slower since the process happens over the Internet. Also, you'll need to enlist the cooperation of the Exchange hosting company. You'll need an admin user account to do the migration.

Thanks...unfortunately requiring an admin user account is a problem. Email is currently hosted with Microsoft Exchange Online and I doubt Microsoft is going to provide me admin access. I guess I'll have to use PST files.

Thanks.

Sorry about the trouble you'll have to go through. This is one of MANY reasons why I'm not fond of Exchange. It's overly complicated to manage.

If the Exchange migration utility won't work, then exporting PST's is probably the only way to go.

Agreed... Once the new Kerio hosted accounts have been setup in Outlook, all you need to do is copy the content (mail, calendars, contacts) into their new Kerio mailboxes. It should work just like moving messages from one folder to another. It's a bit clunky, but it will avoid the need to work with Microsoft to get them to allow you the admin access that you need for an Exchange to Kerio migration. If I can avoid dealing with M$, I will do so Razz

I need to install 2008 Microsoft exchange on my company's server. Can you please guide me how to do it quickly as I told my boss that I know how to install it and now he told me to install it for the company?
