Exchange public folders migration Solutions

Due to the technological differences between Exchange and SharePoint, Tzunami Deployer has the perfect solution for your Exchange public folder to SharePoint migration. For example, Mail items can be migrated as MSG files into a Documents Library. Data-items in a Generic List. The attachments of the mail item become attachments of the data-item. The body of the mail is migrated as a property of the items. It is often useful to add properties that exist for items in Exchange (but are not part of the default lists in SharePoint) to ease working with the content. For example, when migrating mail items, it might be useful to add TO, FROM, and RECEIVED properties to the list. This enables users to sort, group, and filter the items based on these columns.

RSS items can be migrated as MSG/MHTML files in Document Library. The Full Article of the RSS item becomes the attachment of the data-item. The Tzunami Deployer Rule Engine provides a similar default behavior, out-of-the-box. For more information about adding properties or using the Rule Engine, refer to the Tzunami Deployer User Guide.
