[Users] Exchange 2016 to Zimbra Migrate

Hi Deniz, 

There's a few options you may wish to investigate using. Here's a brief summary: 

Option 1.) Use the ZCS Migration Wizard for Exchange/PST (https://www.zimbra.com/downloads/zimbra-migration-tools/). This will migrate email, address books, calendars, and tasks from Exchange to Zimbra. The documentation for it is in the "Migration Resources" section of this page: https://www.zimbra.com/documentation/ . 

Option 2.) If the mailbox users already have their Exchange accounts setup in Outlook on their desktops, you could use Outlook's PST export feature (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Export-or-backup-email-contacts-and-calendar-to-an-Outlook-pst-file-14252b52-3075-4e9b-be4e-ff9ef1068f91) to export their mailbox in to a standalone PST file. Then, assuming you're planning to deploy Zimbra Network Edition, provision an empty mailbox for everyone on the new Zimbra server & ensure their class of service is set to allow the Exchange/ActiveSync feature. In Outlook, on each desktop, install the Zimbra Connector for Outlook. This will normally create a new, empty Outlook profile & it will do an automatic initial sync with their empty mailbox on the Zimbra server. Then, in Outlook, use Outlook's Import PST feature to import the PST file that you exported. This will cause the imported items to sync back up to the mailboxes on the Zimbra server. Similar to option 1, this will import email, address books, calendars, and tasks to your Zimbra server. 

Option 3.) Hire a Zimbra BSP to perform the migration on your behalf. There are several of us on this mailing list, myself included, who can be engaged to help perform a smooth, coordinated migration on your behalf.

Hi Deniz, 

A simple google search would turn up the results you seek and point you to https://www.zimbra.com/downloads/zimbra-migration-tools/ :) If that doesn't work for you, there is always imapsync but then you still need to figure out the best way to get the Calendar and Contact data.

Hi everyone, 

We want to migrate users from Exchange 2016 to Zimbra. Especially calendars are important. 
Is there a method you can suggest? 

Best regards,
