Apart from connection to different email/archive systems, Email Migrator also allows connection to a File System (e.g. ordinary folder). The following lines describe this type of connection:
To establish a connection, click on the Connection tab > Connect to folder button.
This will open the Connect to Folder dialog, which has two main settings tabs: File Share and Options. Each tab contains a set of configuration options for connecting to Flat File.
The available options on File Share tab are:
If credentials are required for the connection to the selected folder, utilize the following text-boxes:
The Options tab allows you to further configure the preferred folder structure and naming conventions to be used at migration:
o Outlook message... - If this option is checked, the behavior when migrating to this folder is as follows: subfolder is created for each mailbox and it further contains folders for each mailbox folder (e.g. Inbox, Sent Items etc.); individual mailbox items are then migrated to these folders in the form of msg files.
o Outlook Personal Archive... - If this option is checked, the behavior when migrating to this folder is as follows: individual mailboxes are migrated as PST files to the given folder. Administrator can specify limit for file size in GB. If the mailbox PST file exceeds this limit, it is divided to smaller PST files.
o Use message ID as file name - Message ID of the items migrated to this folder will be used as file name.
o Use subject as file name - Subject (and date) of the files migrated to this folder will be used as file name.
After all of the desired connection options have been set for all settings tabs, click OK to establish the connection. If Email Migrator is successful making the connection, a new node appears in the Explorer View and you can expand this node and navigate it.
