Email Migration

Hassle-free Email Migration that Does the Job Right

If you need to process 20 user accounts or more, please visit our “Large-Scale Migration” page.

If you’ve tried to transfer your email from one system to another, you know: While it sounds simple, in truth, it can be a time-consuming, frustrating, almost painful experience!

No matter how big or small your migration, finding a solution that’s easy to use and reliable is a challenge.

That’s because email conversion is a bit like language translation. Data can get lost as you go from one language to another.

Maybe you’ve played around with translation tools and know what I mean. You type in a sentence in English and hit translate. But you want to verify the translation, so you plug it back into the translator and convert it into English again.

What happens? Your original sentence now says something completely different! Its meaning is garbled or lost altogether.

Sadly, that’s how many email migration tools work.

They can usually handle the transfer of plain emails just fine. But when converting more complex emails—with embedded images and attachments, for instance—they lose your important data.

Worse still, it sometimes takes expertise to detect this loss of data. Often, you won’t notice what you’ve lost until months or years later—when it’s too late.


Three Migration Methods—Which do You Choose?

It sounds so simple: All you want to do is move from one email account or program to another—say, from Thunderbird to Outlook, or to Office 365 or Gmail.

What are your options?

  1. The import tool included in your email program. This option is typically very limited and usually produces poor results—if you can get it to work at all!
  2. A free solution. If you have a lot of time on your hands… you’re technically at ease with some of the complicated methods… and don’t mind the risk of losing some email data along the way… then, sure, this might work for you.
  3. A paid method. Odds are, you’d rather not go this route for fear of making a mistake and wasting your money on something that doesn’t work. But this is, in fact, your best option.

Email migration is complex. It takes skill and many hours to create a quality tool—and that doesn’t come free. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be expensive, either.

With Aid4Mail, you can get one of the top tools on the market at a price that won’t break the bank.

Does it Work?

Recently, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) used Aid4Mail to migrate 2500+ users from Thunderbird to Outlook as part of an organization-wide migration to Office 365.

As their doctors volunteer all over the world, often in remote locations without a stable internet connection, they needed a fast, flexible and reliable solution to migrate their volunteers as efficiently as possible.

After many months of searching and testing, they chose Aid4Mail.

The flexibility and speed of Aid4Mail meant they were able to migrate all their users, no matter where they were located, or how bad their internet connection was.

This meant their doctors could get on with treating patients, instead of spending time migrating their email.

Notes:

  1. To process (from/to) Outlook MSG files, PST files, and Outlook/MAPI mail profiles, Aid4Mail requires either a 32-bit version of Office Outlook or a standalone version of MAPI. For details, free options, and limitations, see the System Requirements.
    Only Aid4Mail Console can export a source MAPI profile or PST file to a target MAPI profile or PST file. With Aid4Mail Home, Aid4Mail Professional, and Aid4Mail eDiscovery, the workaround is to first export your emails to the Outlook MSG format, and then re-export those files to your target format.
  2. Microsoft Exchange can either be processed through an Outlook/MAPI mail profile (1), or through the IMAP protocol in which case the Exchange server needs to be set up for IMAP access (see instructions).
  3. Aid4Mail cannot process encrypted The Bat! mail files. In this case, you will first have to export your messages with The Bat! to a Generic mailbox format, which Aid4Mail can then process to any of the supported formats.
  4. Aid4Mail currently does not offer tools to convert address books, filters, or account settings from one format to another.
