Migrating company email accounts to a new ISP

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2015-10-22

I have been asked to quote the transfer of a clients company email accounts (90) from one ISP to another.
This of encourse entails transfering of the actual data to the new server

I have done this before using IMAPSYNC, which basically, with the right set of parameters, can automate the data transfer between servers - and handle the transfer of any remaining differences before the actual switch

I was also advised to set the MX TTL to something low like 5 mins so as to enable a quicker transition once the time has come to switch over to the new server.

Any other suggestions that I should consider ?

The remaining uncertainty is how to bill this service: per mailbox, per time spent ?
Specific (figured) pricing suggestions would be really helpfull, thanks
