12: Specify Exchange Mailbox Information

This screen appears only if the Mailbox-enable ... accounts option was marked in screen #9: Select Exchange Administrative Operations.

From the drop-down list boxes, select the locations of the Exchange mail Server and of the Exchange Mailbox database.

Personal Archive / Create personal archive mailboxes (checkbox, appears only if migrating to Exchange 2013 or 2010): Mark the checkbox if you want to create personal archive mailboxes in Exchange.

Click Next to advance to the next screen.

13: Specify Target-to-Source Mail Forwarding Domain

This screen appears only if the Set forwarding or Remove forwarding option was marked in screen #9: Select Exchange Administrative Operations. Enter the name of the domain or subdomain that is assigned to your GroupWise server through the transition period of this migration, and click Next.

Mail arriving in Exchange mailboxes can be forwarded back to users’ GroupWise mailboxes by this domain. If you have assigned a temporary MX subdomain to the Exchange server (in the Pre-Migration Preparations), then your GroupWise server may still carry your original domain name; enter that original domain name here. If, on the other hand, you have assigned a temporary subdomain to the GroupWise server for this purpose, then enter that temporary subdomain.

14: Specify Data for Migration

The Specify Data for Migration screen appears only if the Migrate users option was marked on screen #2: Select Operations. Specify the data you want to migrate in this program run, and click Next.

This screen is designed to let you migrate email messages and calendar data independently, from the server and/or from the archives:

Migrate server based data: Users' mail, appointments, and tasks located on the GroupWise server will be migrated. For the migration of this server-based data, you may specify one or more of: Migrate e-mail messages, Migrate calendar data, Migrate trash folder or Migrate Document References.
Migrate archives: User archives that are located on a central file server will be migrated. For the migration of archived data, you may specify one or more of: Migrate e-mail messages, Migrate calendar data or Migrate trash folder.
Migrate personal address books: Users' personal address books located on the GroupWise server will be migrated.
File contacts as: Determines how the contacts are displayed in the Contacts folder. The File As attribute is also used by Outlook to alphabetize your Contacts. The three available options are:
Use current display name: Use the Display Name attribute of the address book entry.
First Last: Create the File As using the first name and last name attributes separated by a space.
Last, First: Create the File As using the last name and first name attributes separated by a comma.
Include Frequent Contacts with PABs: Tells the program to migrate GroupWise Frequent Contacts from the GroupWise server into a Frequent Contacts folder.
NOTE: A GroupWise Organization Object is like a business card associated with one or more users in a personal address book. An Organization Object contains business-wide or similar "entity" information such as the organization name, address, phone and fax number—information that could be shared by several or many users associated with the same organization. When you create a contact, you can enter his/her organization information, and then link other contacts to that same Organization Object. Or you can create an Organization Object without associating any other contacts with it. Migrator for GroupWise treats an Organization Object as another address book entry and migrates it as a contact.

15: Select Date and Size Filters

This screen appears only if you have selected, on the preceding Specify Data for Migration screen, to migrate server-based data and/or archive data. Select the desired date and attachment size filter settings (if any), and click Next.

Mail dates: You may use date-based filtering to limit the amount of data that is moved, or move all data. Select a radio button in this group to indicate your choice, and if necessary click the Select date button(s) to enter any required date value(s).
NOTE: Any date filters defined are applied only to mail items, and not to users’ contacts. For example, if you use this feature to migrate different date ranges of mail in two or more successive runs of the program, and if you have selected Frequent Contacts for migration in two or more of the runs, the program will create an entire duplicate set of contacts in the Exchange environment.
Calendar dates: You may use date-based filtering to limit the amount of data that is moved, or move all data. Select a radio button in this group to indicate your choice, and if necessary click the Select date button(s) to enter any required date value(s).
NOTE: Any date filters defined are applied only to calendar items, and not to users’ contacts. For example, if you use this feature to migrate different date ranges of calendar data in two or more successive runs of the program, and if you have selected Frequent Contacts for migration in two or more of the runs, the program will create an entire duplicate set of contacts in the Exchange environment.
Attachment sizes: You may use size-based filtering to limit the amount of data that is moved, or move all data. Select a radio button to indicate whether you want to filter migrating attachments by size. If you do choose to filter by attachment size, you must also specify the size limit (in KB). Migrating only attachments smaller than a specified size will reduce the amount of disk space needed to create the new .pst files or server database.
NOTE: Even if you filter attachments based on size, all messages are migrated. The filter excludes only attachments that exceed the size limit, but the messages to which oversized attachments were attached are still migrated.
NOTE: If Office 365 is selected as the Target Exchange System: The Attachment size defaults to 20480 KB (20 MB), which is the maximum message size allowed by Office 365. If the limit is set any higher (for an Office 365 target), the program will try to read and copy larger messages that will ultimately be disallowed by Office 365, generating an error and wasting time.
