[Launch] Self-Service Email Migrations Performed In the Cloud

We’re always looking for ways to make it easier for businesses to move into the cloud. That’s why we’re proud to announce our new do-it-yourself Migration App.

With the Migration App, customers can copy their email data from their previous email servers to our Rackspace Email or Microsoft Exchange messaging platforms. The Migration App is located in the customer Control Panel and is completely self-service, walking the customer through the process step-by-step.

Here are some highlights:

  • Migrate from your own internal email servers or from other hosted servers.
  • Migrate from Exchange servers and POP/IMAP servers. We’ve even added settings for popular email services that we see customers migrating from, such as GoDaddy.
  • Create multiple migrations, including customized migrations for specifics sets of mailboxes.
  • Schedule your migration for a date and time that work best for you.
  • When the migration begins, email data will begin transferring automatically, without any additional effort on your part.
  • View migration progress online and receive email alerts.
  • Save migration details, so that you can review the migration report at any time.

Our Migration App will guide you through the process and includes helpful information along the way. And, of course, our Fanatical Support® team is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, if you need any help.

Please note, if your business has advanced requirements that require a manual migration, our dedicated transition team can build a custom migration plan and manage the entire process for you. Please contact us to learn more.

Want to get started?

For current customers, the Migration App can be accessed within our Control Panel, under Domains -> Tools -> Migrations.

If you are not a current customer, what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time for your business to get in the cloud?

  1. Love to understand more of your thoughts here.  For us we can’t kick-off a migration with out knowing which email accounts you’d like to migrate.  Email me though and lets discuss cameron.nouri [at] rackspace.com
