REQUIRED: Outlook 2007 - Pre-Migration Checklist
This checklist is customized for Outlook 2007 users to do before your migration from AEMS to Office 365.
Removing Large Items Before Email Migration
Click the Tools menu at the top of the the window and then click the Mailbox Cleanup... menu option.
In the Find items larger than text box, type in 20000. Click Find... A window will appear with any messages that are greater than 20MB. They can then be opened, and attachments saved to disk.
Deleted Items Warning
Large Deleted Items Folders
Deleted Items folders that are large in size can slow down your migration process. We will migrate your Deleted Items folder, but if these are messages you do not need, emptying the Deleted Items folder will speed up your migration process.
30-day Deleted Items Timer and Functionality
Once your mailbox has finished the migration process, a 30-day timer will start, and all messages migrated will be permanently deleted in 30 days. Moving forward, all messages in the Deleted Items folder older than 30 days will be permanently removed.
If there are any messages in that folder that you may need, please restore them to your mailbox before this timer is up.
Public Folder Information
Please let your Technical Support Contact (TSC) know of any Public Folders you currently manage.
Resource Calendars and Accounts
We would like to migrate any rooms or resource accounts you manage alongside your mailbox so your workflow is not interrupted. Please let your Technical Support Contact (TSC) of any resources you manage.
Additional Resources for Migration Process
You will have received notice of when your migration date is. On that day or anytime before, please make note of the following resources for when your migration process is occurring.
