The Metalogix Content Matrix SharePoint WSPs include:

Metalogix Extensions Web Services



The Metalogix Extensions Web Services (MEWS) is a web service wrapper around the SharePoint Server Object Model that provides full fidelity and increased speed for migrations. We recommend installing MEWS on either the source or target server in a SharePoint to SharePoint migration depending on your scenario.

SharePoint Email Viewer (for Metalogix Content Matrix Public Folder Edition)


Email Viewer Icon


The SharePoint Email Viewer is a web part that can be installed on target SharePoint servers in cases where you are migrating Exchange Public Folders to SharePoint. The Email Viewer allows users reviewing email folders to preview emails in a web part instead of having to open each email in their default mail client (usually Outlook). For migrations that don’t include Exchange Public Folders, this component is not needed and should not be installed.
