    Unhappy migration TO exchange

    Hi all,

    One of our customers needs to migrate TO exchange, because some 3rd Party Software needs exchange. They are only 12 Users using the web interface.
    so... How can i export eMails, Calendars and Contacts to Exchange? Exporting to an Outlook pst should do, as I can then import it in outlook and move it to the Exchange Account.
    And what can I do with the Shared Calendars they have for managing room availabilities etc.?

    I am sorry for posting it into the migrate FROM xyz forum, but where else could I find answers to this questions...?

    Thanks

    N/A

    Red face please...

    OK, another question:

    Is it by default possible to access zimbra via Outlook? (if so, which version is needed?)
    Then Iwould just set up Outlook for each user to access his mailbox and then use the outlook export function.

    So do I have to install any plugins to access zimbra via outlook?
    As the server is at our customer's location, I can't access the server to check all the possibilities, so I'm asking before going to our customer...

    Thanks in advance!

    Default

    It would be far easier to use Thunderbird, just access both servers via IMAP then drag'n'drop the mail and/or folders.

    That's true but I thought that was obvious by the fact IMAP is a mail protocol?

    We can export csv contacts and ical Calendar, it depends what Exchnage can do with them.

    Default Export TO PST file

    I hope there is some easy way to generate a PST file from my Zimbra's mail accounts. Including, contacts, calendar, etc.

    This would be of great help. I am using Zimbra webmail, but my account has grown too large, and now I'm trying to use Outlook via POP3. I can download all my emails and folders via IMAP, that's fine, but I really need to move all my contacts and calendar to my Outlook's PST file.

    Do you know any way of achieving this???

    If I copy my contacts from the IMAP folder to the PST's contacts folder, it tells me that they are not the same kind of items, and saves them incorrectly.

    Thanks a lot!
