To a limit:

- Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, etc. will not be migrated
- Folders with a forward slash ( / ) in the folder name will not be migrated
- Anything else you specify in the exclusion options will not be migrated

There is also a limit of 500000 items total and size per item 35 MB.

If it fails to migrate some folders, you can always import them later using PSTs.

And the article just in case:

Edit: I actually found some post on the community forums saying it's broken, so test it first I guess:

It if is not fixed yet, use PSTs
