Migrate Exchange 2010 Personal Archive mailboxes to Office 365 Inline Archives

Greetings.

I ran a cutover migration batch. All mailboxes, groups, contacts, etc. were migrated successfully.

We are running Exchange 2010 (SP3) and have about 30 users with Personal Archive mailboxes.

I cannot find any support for the migration of 2010 Personal Archive mailboxes to Office 365 Inline Archive mailboxes through the cutover migration. I read one post that mentioned exporting each user's archive to individual PSTs, then importing them into each user's archive mailboxes. I'm hoping there's a more automated way.

If any experts out there have actual hands-on experience with this issue, or know a reliable source for a better solution, I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks much.
-Stephen

The supported method to do this is to set up your Exchange 2010 server and Office 365 in hybrid mode, then move the users with Personal Archive mailboxes over to Office 365. When you go to move the mailbox from Exchange 2010 to Office 365 you'll be prompted to move over the associated Archive mailbox as well.

See these links for more information on hybrid deployments:

There are a plethora of other articles out there which can show you how to deploy a hybrid environment but the above should point you in the right direction.

Hmmm, I wanted to avoid a hybrid deployment. Thank you for the information. I've read that there are some PST Import utilities that would do the trick.  Microsoft's PST Capture gets pretty crappy reviews, but MessageOps PST Migrator might work.

I'll have to agree with the sentiments on Microsoft's PST Capture - the fact that it only works with the 64-bit version of Outlook was a bit of a red flag for me. Who the heck uses the 64-bit version of Office?? :)

Glad I could be of some help.
