Large Deleted Items Folders
The migration process can be slowed down if your mailbox's Deleted Items folder is large in size. If you don't need these messages, emptying your Deleted Items folder can speed up the migration. To do this, right-click (control-click in Mac OS X) your Deleted Items folder and select Empty Folder or Erase Deleted Items.

Note: If the above search instructions identified any large items in your mailbox, this action is necessary to prevent issues migrating your mailbox.
