Transitioning from public folders to sharepoint
Posted on 2012-04-11
I've taken over a SBS server and I'm trying to organize the data in a better way. They have been using public folders to archive their email and at this point there is about 10GB is email stored there. It's a bit frightening to me. I'd like to transition them to use sharepoint for this task, does anyone have any experience with a set up like this?
It's an insurance company, and everything business (commercial insurance) related has been stored here. I'm thinking of making two email enabled security groups that receive and archive email, one named business or commercial and the other named residential or personal (I'm not sure if they archive these). I think this should work fine going forward, but I'm unsure how to get everything from their public folders into this database. Forward them? Currently there is a public folder for every company they deal with, and I'm guessing they wouldn't mind having a similar structure.
