    the below points mentioned from customer need to clarified.

    1.        Address book  - Mail Search function to handle both SXXXX address book and personal address book. the search type ahead logic is that User VS1 need to be displayed before user VS18. This should be fast enough.

    2.         Search order of Mails including Archives to have some intelligent.

    3.        Mail forwarding rule - Example - All mails to User NS1 need to also go to NSO1, NSOFF & similarly all mails to user VS1 need to go to VSOFF.

    4.        The created Contacts for the users NS1 and VS1 need to be synced only from the specific user devices of Satya & Srinivasan laptops respectively.

    5.        Mail when sent from users NS1 and VS1 either on their Desktops, Laptops or from Mobile Devices should automatically have a BCC to NS OFF, VS OFF ID's respectively.

    6.        The Attachment in the mobile device should be at the bottom.

    7.        Any Draft Mails saved in the Draft folder of the User's Laptop or Desktop should also sync to the Mobile Devices and to all other Devices.

    8.        Please confirm that the search function in the Mobile Device app or the Desktop device covers all the contents including all documents, folders, archive mails etc.

    9.        Any Anniversary reminders need to be shown in the no time zone.

    10.        There should be no repeat entries when the Mail, Calendar, Contacts etc is migrated from Lotus Notes to Cloud Mail.

    11.        Our Dy Chairman's Mail box currently has 1000+ folders and the same need to be migrated and maintained in Cloud Mail.

    12.        Mail should have the first time sync feature at all times without any delay.

    13.        Mail Sync issues should not exist when the user is away from his home station. (Sync while roaming)

    14.        Does MS Cloud Mail have any Sync issues between the Client and Mailbox when the mailbox size is very large?

    15.        Calendar entries for archived period also need to be migrated.

  • Hi,

    How do you migrate lotus to office 365?

    Based on my knowledge, there are four types of migration method to migrate email to Office 365 from other systems, such as cutover migration, staged migration, hybrid deployment, IMAP migration. The IBM® Lotus® Domino® server supports the Internet Mail Access Protocol (IMAP4rev1), defined in RFC 2060.

    So I suggest you have a look at the following articles to complete the migration:
