Hi People,

I am stuck in a problem. We have a mailbox on exchange online using 1000 of nested folders and large usage of around 20 Gig, which we now want to move to an IMAP account on a different server. The user is using outlook for Mac and when we try to move / copy the folder tree using drag and drop between 2 accounts, it does not allow to be dragged to the IMAP account. It is a large problem as we need to migrate the user ASAP.

BAD NEWS ... in my experience there is no 1 click process to move/copy the mail and folders from Exchange to IMAP .. when there is such a large mailbox and number of folders ..

Manually doing it in batches is one option .. otherwise I've seen the following product being used on Windows to pull out the email from Exchange in a format that Outlook can import ...

I'm not aware of an OSX equivalent of MSGextract :-(
