Table 10: New Features

Module Feature Description
Mail Migration Support for X500 email addresses The On Demand Migration for Mail service will migrate X500 email addresses of user and group mailbox accounts if they are not already synchronized with the online Office 365 Active Directory in the target tenant. Migration of X500 addresses prevents NDR (Non-Delivery Report) problems with older email addresses as described below:

X500 email addresses are generated when user mailboxes from older versions of on-premise Microsoft Exchange environments or hybrid environments are synchronized with the online Office 365 Active Directory. After mail migration, if X500 addresses are not added to the user’s attributes in the target tenant, and the user interacts with old mail or calendar items, the sender receives an NDR reporting that the specific recipient doesn’t exist.

The product licensing is based on the number of unique source accounts processed by the migration and/or matching tasks. The licenses are only consumed once the task is started (either automatically or manually). Simply adding accounts to the tasks without starting them does not consume the licenses. Shared, Room, Equipment mailboxes, and guest users do not consume licenses.

NOTE: The license is permanently assigned to the source account. Thus, you can use this account in any number of tasks (migration, re-matching, etc.) without consuming the additional licenses.

There are no data limits for OneDrive, SharePoint, mailbox and public folders content migration.

For more information on available subscriptions and licensing refer to On Demand Global Settings User Guide.
