MDaemon Messaging Server - Email Server Migration

Email migration is easy using the free migration tools offered with MDaemon. Whether you want to move your data from Microsoft Exchange Server or from any other email server that supports the ActiveSync protocol version 14.1, we can help with tools and resources to make the transition hassle free.

MDaemon's Integrated MDMigrator Tool

For Exchange servers, the integrated MDMigrator tool is a simple and secure way to get up and running with minimal downtime. MDMigrator migrates the following data:

  • Accounts and Account Information
  • Mailboxes and Their Content
  • Public Folders and Contents
  • Mailing Lists
  • Distribution Lists
  • Calendars
  • Contacts
  • Notes
  • Tasks
  • Journal Entries (stored in a folder, and not currently used by MDaemon)

ActiveSync Migration Client for MDaemon

For migrating from Exchange or any other mail server, the ActiveSync Migration Client for MDaemon provides improved migration support for administrators by easily migrating email, calendars, tasks, notes, and contacts using the ActiveSync protocol.

The ActiveSync migration client copies the following data to MDaemon:

  • Accounts and Account Information
  • Mailboxes and Their Content
  • Public Folders and Contents
  • Calendars
  • Contacts
  • Notes
  • Tasks

Optional Info

Note: All shared & public folders are synced to a user's own IMAP folders. Therefore, we recommend running the ActiveSync migration client twice. For the first migration, disable public & shared folders and migrate all accounts and mailbox contents. For the second migration, enable public folders (not shared folders) and migrate a single account that has access to these folders. Then, on the MDaemon server you can use drag & drop to drag these messages to the public & shared folders accordingly.

Reasons to Migrate from Exchange

MDaemon Messaging Server, from a total cost of ownership consideration, is much less expensive to purchase, maintain, and upgrade than Microsoft Exchange. From a staffing point-of-view, Exchange usually requires at least one highly-trained IT professional with compensation requirements beyond the means of budget-conscious organizations. Such staffing support can add tens of thousands of dollars (U.S.) to the annual cost of owning Exchange.

When comparing, consider the resource savings MDaemon offers:

  • Initial software purchase
  • Upgrades
  • Licensing
  • Operations
  • Feature set, including security
  • Ease of administration
  • Email user support
  • Email user satisfaction
  • Specialized staffing
  • Hardware requirements
  • Operating system requirements
