Exchange / Outlook

(MAPI)


Microsoft Outlook is an email client application. It is commonly used as a stand
-
alone POP3 or IMAP
email client, or it is used to send and receive email through a Microsoft Exchange Server. Transend
Migrator
supports the migration of

data from Microsoft O
utlook whether it is a stand
-
alone client or if it
connects to a Microsoft Exchange Server.




Requires
.
Microsoft Outlook
32bit
is required in order to migrate local Personal Folder File
s
(PST) when using MAPI, or
when you are migrating Microsoft Exchange S
erver based email.
If
you do not have Microsoft Outlook but are migrating from PST files then you may choose
OST/PST (non_Mapi)

as your Source choice rather than Exchange/Outlook.



Important

Microsoft Outlook must
be the default email program for Windows when converting from or to
Microsoft Exchange/Outlook.




Data File
. Microsoft Outlook stores email data within PST files. The PST file is also considered an
email archive file. In a typical Exchange/Outlook environme
nt the client workstation will not
have PST files unless messages are archived to the local workstation. IF there are archived
messages within Outlook, the messages are stored within an Outlook Personal Folder File.



Editions Supported
. Transend Migrator St
andard and Forensic Editions.


The
main difference between a stand
-
alone version of Microsoft Outlook and a Microsoft Exchange
Server based version of Outlook
is

where the email and data is stored. This is primarily determined and
setup by the Microsoft Ou
tlook email profile which can be found in the Windows Control Panel.


In an Outlook Stand
-
alone version, the email data is stored inside a
Personal Folder

message store or
file. This file is commonly called a PST file. This message store can have any vali
d name, and it has a .PST

file extension. Normally, this file is located on the workstation hard drive, but can

also

be
stored on

a

network.


In an Outlook and Exchange Server environment, Outlook connects to the Exchange Server and the
message

data is stored on th
e Exchange Server. When a user

logs into the Exchange Server, they
normally go through a profile which contains the important logon name information. Optionally, a user
can store or archive email to their local hard drive. This means t
hat they can store email inside a PST file
in addition to having email stored on

the

Microsoft Exchange

Server
.

When Outlook profiles contain multiple Personal Folder Files

Transend Migrator will work with Outlook profiles containing no more than 6
attached Personal Folder
files (PST). If profiles are used, create a profile that contains 6 or fewer Personal Folder files.

Exchange Security

When migrating Microsoft Exchange email you are able to migrate your personal email account without
the need for
a password if you are migrating from your own account. To migrate other email accounts
your user account must have
receive
-
as permissions

on the Exchange Information Store where the
alternate email acco
unts are located.

Exchange Web Services (EWS)

You may also migrate Exchange 2007 or 2010 data using Exchange Web Services if you are using Outlook
Web Access. This method eliminates the requirement to have Outlook installed on your migration
computer.
Choose MS Office 365 (EWS)

to convert Exchange 2007 or 2010 email data. Review the
Getting Started help file section titled
Exchange Web Services

for more i
nformation on how to setup an
Impersonation Account so that you can migrate users without the need for user passwords.

Technical Support


The following example
provides a step
-
by
-
step overview of how to
migrate messages from
Microsoft
Exchange / Outlook
:


1.

Start Transend Migrator.

2.

Select

the
Email

Button.

3.

From the
Migration Opt
ions

menu, choose
Custom Options

if you want to adjust your migration
project from the default settings.

4.

Select
Exchange / Outlook

from the Convert From: drop down selection box on the Source Pane.





5.

Enter the
profile name, PST file name, or direct mode syntax
.

Below

is more information about
those choices:



1.

Profile Method
:
Choose an existing Outlook

profile

by pressing the drop down arrow
next to the Profile or PST: text box.

2.

Direct File Method
:
Type in the p
ath and filename of an existing PST file

when migrating
from Exchange/Outlook, or type in the path and filename of an existing PST file. If one
does not exist then Transend Migrator will create one for you with the name you
provide.

3.

Syntax Method
:
If you d
o not want to create an Outlook Profile, and if you have
permission to access the account then use the following syntax:


<servername>!!<username>


For example, if your servername is PDCEX and your username is beverly.johnson enter
in the information as fo
llows:


PDCEX!!beverly.johnson


If more than one email account is similar then MAPI might become confused. Therefore,
add an equals sign to the syntax as in the following example:


PDCEX!!=beverly.johnson



You may also use the full smtp address of the use
r to resolve the name:


PDCEX!!=Beverly.johnson@mycompany.local


These choices
allow
s

you to migrate directly from or to the Exchange Server account if
you have permission to do so.

Folders

button to choose which folders to migrate. All folders

will migrate by default.

ti
me progress of

Caution

You will often run into problems when migrating directly from Exchange server to a PST file, and
especially the newer style, which is UNICODE. This is

not a limitation of Transend Migrator, instead it is a
bug within Outlook MAPI and it still exists in Outlook 2010.


There

is one possible way to migrate directly from Exchange Server to Outlook PST files. Convert from
Exchange server to the old ANSI styl
e PST file by using the /OLDPST Custom Option.
Note that

the old
style PST file has a 2GB limitation
,

and
once

you reach that limit your PST file will become corrupted
and/or the migration will fail. You may want to migrate excessively large source account
s in multiple
passes. Consider migrating via a date range, or even by groups of folders to ensure your output will be
less

than 2GB.


When migrating directly from Exchange server

to a

PST

file,

consider performing a 2
-
step migration.
Migrate from Exchange

Server to Transport File (TRF), and the
n

migrate from the Transport File to a PST
file. In this
two
-
step

process you can choose the UNICODE style of PST file.
