Migrating to Hosted Exchange

This article will show you an overview of how you will be migrating to hosted exchange. A few scenarios will apply so you are free to choose what is best for your organization.

Migration Overview

Here will be the steps in order to migrate to us.

  1. Apply online
  2. Create your mailboxes and set passwords
  3. Change DNS to point to us
  4. Setup new Outlook profiles to connect to us
  5. Once configured and connected to our exchange, you may import your old PST to us

Migrate mailboxes from Exchange Server

For migrations from an existing on-premises Exchange Server environment, an administrator can migrate all email, calendar, and contacts from user mailboxes to Hosting.ca. You may export your existing mail data to a PST file.

Migrate email from another IMAP email server

You can use the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to migrate user email from Gmail, Exchange, Outlook.com, and other email systems that support IMAP migration. When you migrate the user’s email by using IMAP migration, only the items in the users’ inbox or other mail folders are migrated. Contacts, calendar items, and tasks can’t be migrated with IMAP, but they can be by a user.
