Migrate to groupwise

I’m looking for a strategy for migrate from traditional mail boxes (Mdaemon) to groupwise.
Searching on internet, show results for migration from groupwise to something else.
So I think “groupwise is the worst mail system, all want to change it”.

There are any suggestion on how to migrate to groupwise?

Thanks,

I think it is the best!

I never heard of mdaemon. But did a little searching and it appears
there are methods to export mdaemon to PST. You could then import the
PST to GroupWise. Someone else may have a better suggestion, but that
is at least one method you could try.

Re: Migrate to groupwise

Thanks for your reply, I agree that groupwise is the best. The statement was a provocation, but if you search on google, it return only migration from gw . May be I have inserted a wrong query.

Mdaemon (altn.com) is a classic mail engine, used via pop3, smtp and Imap. The client, on my case, is Outlook, so I have the most of mail's users is in pst format.
I'll look for pst import

Besides importing from PST, another option is to point the GW client to
mdaemon via POP/IMAP, then simply have your users drag e-mails from
their mdaemon folders to their GW inbox or cabinet.

Also look at doing IMAP Sync between the two messaging systems. Use the IMAP of the GW POA.

Here is a sourceforge IMAP tool ...

Re: Migrate to groupwise

Hey, we actually sell Exchange to GroupWise migration software, and we actually have customers - heehee - so it's not totally a one-way street. That product actually can convert PSTs to GW in batch (http://bit.ly/16IhMu9)

If you are looking at PST, AdvansysCorp (www.advansyscorp.com) has a "personal PST migrator" that is free! But it requires that you do the PSTs one at a time (although (I've managed to do it all from one workstation).

So there are a couple of options for you, depending on how much you want to spend (money or time).

For yet another option there's Transend Migrator.

http://www.transend.com/products/transend-migrator/

I had a customer use that to migrate from Zimbra to GW which would be
somewhat similar (to my understanding) as migrating from EX to GW.
Either way, the Transend folks can do it. Anyone interested in this,
e-mail me at jmarton at novell dot com and I'll gladly pass along my
contact at Transend.

Most of those are driven by the herd trampling in one particular
direction and being very loose with their funds in doing so, thereby
creating lots of money pit options that advertise greatly to keep high on
google rankings. Since those migrating toward GroupWise tend to do so in
part for the efficiencies of it, they also tend not to throw as much
money around in doing so, hence much less add driving rankings for it.

Any migration has it's challenges, but I see that you are on track with a
bunch of options now for your investigation. Good luck and welcome to the
club.
