Exchange 2013 Migration from Non-Exchange email server


Is there a way to migrate non-exchange email server to on-premise Exchange 2013 (not office 365) ?

We are using a mail server called Matrix 3 ( and planning to migrate to Exchange 2013. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I was thinking about  IMAP migration but I have just found out this is not available to on-premise Exchange 2013.

Matrix appears to be a very specialized management system, rather than a dedicated e-mail platform. This will complicate your efforts. Microsoft does not offer migration tools for Matrix.

Matrix 3 claims to support IMAP access for Outlook. This means you could use Outlook to export your mail data (per user) to a PST file and then import into the Exchange Server. Transend Migrator might be able to help with this operation.

Doing a hosted email to On-prem migration requires a third party utility such as Migrationwiz or BinaryTree to accomplish properly. Otherwise, you'll want to do as Delphineous recommends and export to PST, then import using the Exchange command shell's new-importrequest cmdlet.
