Sun ONE/iPlanet

Important: You cannot use end-user credentials to connect to a Sun ONE/iPlanet email service.

Specify the following values to connect to your Source ONE/iPlanet source email service:

  • Server Name— Enter the location of the Sun ONE/iPlanet server as appears in the address bar when you log in as an administrator to your account.
  • Port — Enter the Sun ONE/iPlanet server port number.
  • Use SSL — If your server does not support SSL, all mailbox data will be transmitted non-encrypted. Use SSL connections if possible to secure your data. ODME supports self-signed SSL certificates.

Note: For information on generating a properly formatted self-signed SSL certificate, see Using Self-Signed SSL Certificates.

  • Use end-user credentials — Select this option if you want to connect to the email service using the passwords for each mailbox instead of the credentials of the administrator account. If selected, you must specify the password for each source mailbox. For more information, see Adding Mailboxes.
  • Admin User Name and Password — The name and password of the administrator account.

To migrate data from Sun ONE/iPlanet, your administrator account must have FullAccess rights to all mailboxes.

Microsoft Exchange 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019

Specify the following values to connect to your Exchange 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019 source email service:

  • Server URL— You can enter the URL of the Exchange 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019 server manually, or you can use the auto-discovery option.

If you are not using HTTPS for Outlook Web Access (OWA), enter the full URL for your EWS service, e.g., http://servername/EWS/Service.ASMX.

 

Note:For Exchange Server 2007 only: To enable the CPUU integration feature on the source Exchange Server 2007, you should turn on and configure WebDAV API access on your source Exchange Server 2007. For more details, see Updating Outlook Client Profiles.

If you are using SSL, enter the name of your Exchange 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019 server manually (e.g., exchange.example.com).

 

Note: If your server does not support SSL, all mailbox data will be transmitted non-encrypted. Use SSL connections if possible to secure your data. ODME supports self-signed SSL certificates. For information on generating a properly formatted self-signed SSL certificate, see Using Self-Signed SSL Certificates.

  • Use auto-discovery — Use auto-discovery to obtain the server URL. During a migration, this option uses the specified user name and password to retrieve the server URL that hosts your Exchange Web Services (EWS) server for the given mailbox.

If you are having problems with auto-discovery, you can test your external connectivity using a free tool from Microsoft. The following website can be used to validate if your services are working properly. Please go to https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com to test your Exchange connectivity.

  • Use end-user credentials — Select this option if you want to connect to the email service using the passwords for each mailbox instead of the credentials of the administrator account. If selected, you must specify the password for each source mailbox. For more information, see Adding Mailboxes.
  • Admin User Name and Password — The name and password of the administrator account.

The Admin User Name value is the account's UPN or domain credentials (e.g., domain\username). For more information about UPNs and how to determine which domain you are using for your users, please see Active Directory naming on the Microsoft Technet site.

Microsoft Office 365

Specify the following values to connect to the Office 365 source email service:

  • Server Name — You can enter the name of the Office 365 server as it appears in the address bar when you log in as an administrator to your account, or you can use the auto-discovery option.
  • Use Modern Authentication — You can use Modern Authentication to connect to Office 365. The Use Modern Authentication option lets you grant consent to ODME instead of providing Administrative credentials with Application Impersonation rights. The Use Modern Authentication option is enabled for any newly created plan by default.
    When the Use Modern Authentication option is enabled, the Forwarding section in a plan’s Options page contains additional fields where you need to specify the credentials of the account which has the permissions to modify forwarding settings.

    Note: The Use Modern Authentication option is supported for connections to the Office 365 Worldwide. The option is not supported for connections to the Office 365 hosted in the Germany, China or US Government environments (Office 365 GCC High).

  • Use auto-discovery — It is recommended that you use auto-discovery to obtain the name of your Office 365 server.

Auto-discovery uses your login credentials to automatically obtain the server name during a migration. With auto-discovery, On Demand Migration for Email connects directly to the Office 365 auto-discovery endpoints, meaning that you don't have to configure your DNS to take advantage of auto-discovery. You do need to make sure that all your mailboxes exist in Office 365 before migrating data into them.

  • Use end-user credentials — Select this option if you want to connect to the email service using the passwords for each mailbox instead of the credentials of the administrator account. If selected, you must specify the password for each source mailbox. For more information, see Adding Mailboxes.
  • Admin User Name and Password — The name and password of the administrator account.

To migrate data to Office 365, your administrator account must have Application Impersonation rights, which means the account must be assigned to a Role-Based Access Control group that has Application Impersonation rights. For more information, see Preparing Your Source Email Service for Migration.

Windows Live Hotmail

The values used to connect to the Windows Live Hotmail source email service are configured automatically by ODME.
