Pre-move Instructions

Note: These steps are recommendations for you to retain content from GroupWise.  If some of the steps do not apply to you, you do not need to do them.

If you own a shared resource mailbox or calendar, you should review these steps for each resource as well.

  1. Save your signature, since it will not migrate.
  2. Search for messages over 25MB, save the attachments and delete the original email message.  Messages over 25MB are not permitted in Office 365 and will not migrate.
  3. Capture the contents of your past and future calendar appointments since only current appointments 7/25/2014 through 12/31/2014 will be migrated.
  4. Document the shared folders, address books and calendars you own.  You will need to set sharing back up in Office 365.
  5. Document the rules you have in your account, since they will not migrate.
