Over the last 5 years we have migrated thousands of mailboxes from on premise systems to Microsoft Office 365 – Exchange Online. During those years, we have been able to identify many tools from third parties that facilitate and automate the migration processes. They use distinctive protocols and approaches to conduct email migrations from email platforms like Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes, Zimbra and Novell GroupWise.
Here are some of our favorite third-party migration tools that can assist with Exchange migrations from either Exchange or other third-party platforms:
