I was reading a cool solution on migration, but I'd rather start up a new server, new gw2018 installation and somehow pull into the new installation the email from gw8. Years ago when I changed from gw6 to gw8; There was a cool solution that I used, I archived everyone's email. Started a brand new server, installed gw8 on the new server, changed the user id's in console one for the users to the user id's they had on the old server, then in the clients pointed the gw clients to their respective archives (that I had copied over to the new server), and they could then pull back whatever messages/appointments they wanted.
Can you do the same thing from gw8 to gw18? I know console one will not be available?
Any other/better ideas?
