G Suite Migration for Microsoft Exchange

You must meet the following system requirements before using GSMME. 

Component Requirements
G Suite

If you have the legacy free edition of Google Apps, upgrade to G Suite to get this feature.

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.
Client computer
  • Microsoft Windows® XP SP3, Windows Vista Business SP1 or later, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2003 SP2 or later, Windows 2008, Windows 2008 R2.

  • Microsoft Outlook® 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 (required only for migrating from Microsoft Exchange or PST files). 64-bit and Click-to-Run versions aren't supported.

We recommend that you use the latest patches for both Windows and Outlook.



Can I run GSMME on the Exchange server?

No. It's strongly recommended that you run GSMME on a separate server. 

Does GSMME work in a hosted Exchange environment?

Yes. If you use Microsoft Outlook to access Exchange data for a user's profile, you can use that computer to run GSMME. 

Can I migrate from a hosted Exchange environment if I don't have administrator access?

No. Administrator access is required.
