Migrating from MailSite 9.4 to Exchange 2010

Hello,

We will be migrating from MailSite 9.4 to Exchange 2010. Both servers will be on the same network and we are looking into the options we have to migrate. Is there a best practice for this specific migration?

I looked into this for migrating to Exchange 2007 and found that a lot of people use Microsoft Transport Suite or ExMerge. Are these applicable for use in migrating to 2010. Has anyone done it specifically from MailSite?

Our options would be to do a full migration OR setup the two servers side by side and use Exchange for future mail, with MailSite as an archive server. We are purchasing new machines throughout the building and server hardware is relatively new. Alll licensing is Enterprise.

Hi

For this I think is better use Microsoft Transport Suite

This is for migrating from MDaemon to Exchange, but since MDaemon and MailSite are similar, the process can be the same.

http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2007/migration-deployment/migrating-pop/imap-exchange-server-2007-microsoft-transport-suite-part1.html

There some third party tools(not free) that also can do a migrating from various mail servers into Exchange.

That is what I have been looking into. The tutorials and articles all say migration to Exchange 2007, will it work the same with 2010? Am I missing anything that would cause issue? Of course I will be testing this thoroughly but I want to be prepared as best as possible.

My understanding is that this will move accounts, settings, and mail. Is there an 'easy' way to move calendars and contacts? That is why I was hoping someone has done a full migration from MailSite. I may be interested in premium third party tools if they work well.

Hi

2007 and 2010 have no big differences in this area. So the process will be the same for both versions.
