Gmail personal to Office365 migration?

janhoedt used Ask the Experts™

I have bought an Office 365 business (basic) package and have also attached my personal domain (hosted at to it.
Can you tell me now howto:

*migrate all my mails (migration tool does not work, throws error)
*migrate contacts
*migrate calendar
*keep my outlook in sync with gmail (since users will keep using my gmail address)?
*share calendar with another person who uses a simple address (she should be able to add/remove etc)
*create a site (Sharepoint) which I can run my (bought godaddy) domain on? of course only a public part should be able to see by public

Please advise.
