Migration to Microsoft Exchange (Outlook) Server

     This program allows QuickMail users to migrate their Mail Folders including Attachments, Personal Address Books and Personal Address Groups to Microsoft Exchange. It also converts Meeting Maker's Events and ToDos to Microsoft Schedule Plus and Outlook Calendar
     The program migrates both QuickMail PRO and QuickMail LAN versions
     It supports both MAC and PC platforms
      The program, QMailMig, is intended to be used by an administrator responsible for migration
     The following network environment should be setup:
a shared "root" directory should be created which can be accessed by all QuickMail users
under this root directory, a sub-directory for each user should be created using their exchange SMTP UserID as the sub-directory’s name
each user should have write access to their sub-directory to copy their mail folders, Personal Address Books, Personal Address Groups and exported Meeting Maker files
the administrator’s workstation should have read access to the root directory
the administrator’s workstation should have access to a shared directory accessible by from an NT server where Exchange Migration Wizard (Mailmig.exe) will be running
      QuickMail users can then copy their Mail Folders and files into a their <UserId> sub-directory
      The administrator starts the Migrator program and selects all or some of the QuickMail users for migration
      The program then reads each user's Mail Folders and files. It converts the data to Microsoft Exchange intermediate migration files (PKL, PRI and SEC). These files are used by the Exchange Migration Wizard :
      When the Migrator program runs, a set of log and exemption files (i.e. any warnings/errors encountered) will be generated. The log files are in a tab delimited format. The files can be viewed using a text editor or spreadsheet program
      Once the Migrator program finished, the administrator then starts the Microsoft Exchange Migration Wizard from the Exchange Administration Tools and imports the intermediate files to Exchange Server

 Preparing for Migration
     Mail Folders, Personal Address Books(PAB) and Personal Address Groups(PAG):
QuickMail Folders are stored as PC/Mac sub-directories
PABs and PAGs are stored as files
      For example QuickMail PRO stores all the files in a QMail subdirectory:
      All files and sub-directories from the QMail sub-directory should be copied to the the sub-directory described in the Overview above
      MAC Users can copy the files using our MRU utility program. This program runs on the MAC platform. It copies a source directory and renames (if necessary) all sub-directories and files to ensure that only valid WIN32 characters are used in the destination directory
     Meeting Maker:
      Meeting Maker's Event and ToDos should be a exported using Meeting Maker -> Export to the sub-directory and have an extension *.MM

 Program Description
     The program is written in Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0 and can run on a 32-bit Windows platform. The program is called QMailMig.exe. It invokes a series of wizard like forms. The following pages describe each form
     Startup Screen
     Optional User Names File
     This field points to a text file, which consists of a list of user names. If the file is not supplied, you can manually enter the User IDs on the second screen
     These User IDs are the same as the SMTP user names defined in Microsoft Exchange Server.
     For example:
if Radik Gens’s SMTP address is SMTP:radikg@abc.com, use radikg
if Paul Egger’s SMTP address is SMTP:PaulE@Exchange.abc.com, use PaulE as the user name
     Note: user names do not have to be case sensitive
     To find out the SMTP User ID, start the Microsoft Exchange Server Administration program, double-click on the user object and select the E-mail Addresses tab:
     QuickMail Folders Drive and Path
      All files and sub-directories from the QMail sub-directory should be copied to the the sub-directory described in the Overview above
      Specifies the drive and path of the root sub-directory described in the Overview above
      For example:
Q:\QmailMig\UserData Select this sub-directory
. . .
Q:\QmailMig\UserData\RadikG\My Filed Mail\
. . .

     PRO Version and LAN Version option buttons
      Click the version from which the QuickMail users are migrating from
     Exchange Server
      Location of Intermediate Files
Specifies the drive and path of a sub-directory where the intermediate migration files (PKL, PRI and SEC) created during migration will be stored. The Exchange Migration Wizard should have read access to this sub-directory
      SMTP Domain Name
The SMTP Domain Name that will be appended to each user’s SMTP User ID.
      You can find the domain name in the Exchange Server Administration Program, by double-clicking a user object and selecting the E-mail Addresses tab
     Log Files
     The check boxes can be used to specify extra logging levels as follows:
Folder Logs - generates a summary for each folder: folder name, number of mail items, folder size, migration time stamp
Mail Item Logs - generates detailed information for each mail item: folder name, sender, Date received, size, migration time stamp, subject
     All log files will have a file name of with the following extensions:
FolderLog for Folder Logs
MailLog for Mail Item Logs
     Use the Browse button to select the LogFiles Drive and Path for these logs
      This ID is used for uniqueness of the PKL file name and to identify the workstation that created the intermediate migration files

 User Input Screen
     This screen displays the contents of the User Names File specified on the startup screen. The list box will be blank if no file has been specified
     To edit this list, highlight a name. It will be displayed in the text box below. The text box can be edited:
Replace: updates the selected UserID
Add: inserts a new UserID
Delete: remove multiple selected entries
     The edits are for run-time use only and do not update the file on disk

  User Selection Screen
     This screen allows the administrator to select a subset of users for the current migration batch. The single arrows move highlighted names. Double arrows move all

  Migration Status Screen
     Displays the migration progress for each selected user
     When all selected users have been migrated, the screen will be changed to:
