Easier Way to Migrate Postoffices to New Server

Postby calfordgreen » Wed Nov 23, 2016 12:15 am


I have been using ME Pro for a long time now, almost 10 years I think. The biggest issue for me has always been migrating Post Offices to a New Server. Over time, servers become old, the OS becomes extinct/Out of support, or we just need to rebalance.

It is quite easy to migrate someone to a Mail Enable if they are using a different product, but if already using ME on 1 server, it is a pain to move a Post Office to another server. The article https://www.mailenable.com/kb/content/article.asp?ID=ME020387 starts by saying the process is quite involved...

It doesn't have to be fancy. It can be just as simple as selecting a Post Office from a list, you build a ZIP file that we then FTP to the new server and UnZip and then run a process on the new server that sets everything up...

Many thanks... I have 1 server with almost 200 Post Offices on it running an old W2K8 server and having to try and migrate 1 Post Office a night for a very long time :(

thanks for reading...

Hi, I have the same issue. Is there an easier way to do this? Is it possible to move just the configuration and email ids over to the new server and move the old emails slowly over a period of time?
