G Suite Migration for Microsoft Exchange

This feature isn't available in the legacy free edition of Google Apps.

G Suite Migration for Microsoft® Exchange (GSMME) is a utility that migrates mail, calendar, and contact data from your Exchange Server or mail from an IMAP server to G Suite. You must meet the following system requirements before using G Suite Migration for Microsoft Exchange. 


Component Requirements

  • G Suite or G Suite for Education.
Mail server
  • Microsoft Exchange Server (2000, 2003, 2007 or 2010) or IMAP server (any RFC 3501-compliant IMAP server, including Microsoft Exchange, Novell® GroupWise®, Cyrus, Courier, Dovecot, SunMail, Zimbra, or Gmail).
  • One administrative account on your server that has permission to read each user's mailbox. In Microsoft Exchange, the permission Receive As is sufficient.
