Best method to Migrate Gmail Hosted Emails to MS Exchange Premise Hosted Server Seemlessly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    We are currently hosting our email services on Gmail Servers.  But wonder if we can host it on our premises keeping all our emails as per currently configured basis on Exchange2013.

    Questions:

    1. Is there any Chronological approach to this migration?

    2. How to keep emails and labels as per user's current setup in Gmail to be best available in MS Exchange to reduce Migration problems. How to get all emails in all folders of Inbox, sent etc in Gmail to Exchange seamlessly in Harmony to user experiences in GMail? so that learning curve is reduced sharply.

    3. Does the forward function that cancels duplication of group mail forwarding used such as in group, exist in MS Exchange? We use it for sharing emails that keepi coming in different email IDs into different departments but all managers need to know it for both incoming and outgoing responses.

    4. Does MS Exchange handle Spam and controls better than any 3rd party solution? Does it allow proper whitelisting at organisation's administration level?

    Thanks,

    Ramesh

  • 1. I don't understand what you mean by chronological.

    2. Are you asking about keeping it in both places or migrating from Gmail?  If you're migrating from Gmail, consider a product like MigrationWiz (http://www.migrationwiz.com).  If you're asking about keeping it in both places, I have nothing to help you.

    3. I don't understand what you're asking here.

    4. I suppose it depends on the third-party solution and what's important to you.  That's a value judgment that I don't care to get into.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, there is no any bespoke tool purely for GMAIL migrations.

    However, the following articles may give you some helps:

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks.
