  • Easy migration from on-premises Exchange to hosted Exchange (any version)
Exchange Migration
Exchange to Office 365

It provides ample features to perform Office 365 mailbox migrations. All the mailbox content like Emails, Contacts, Tasks, Calendars, Public Folders, etc. will be migrated along with their metadata. In addition to the Tenant-to-Tenant Office 365 migrations, Exchange Migration Software can migrate from all versions of Exchange to Office 365 and vice-versa.

  • Supports all Exchange versions – 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, and prior versions
  • Track the status of your migration project with real-time reports and alerts
  • Synchronize migrated mailbox – source to target, target to source, or both ways
  • Log in using the app password when the multi-factor authentication is active
Exchange/Office 365 Backup

The tool works as a backup tool also. It can backup all or selective mailbox items using the Message class/Date range/folder filters and save the data in PST (existing/new), EML, and MSG formats. It can conduct incremental backup of the data if new items are added. Also, Exchange Migration has the provision for scheduling the backup based on date, day, frequency, & time.

  • Backup each mailbox item like emails, contacts, notes, journals etc.
  • Allows selective data backup with Message class/Date range/folder filters
  • Provision for scheduling backup based on date, day, frequency, & time

Exchange/Office 365 Backup
Public Folder Migration

Due to the sprawling item counts and size, the migration of Public Folders was a tricky job until the introduction of the software which specializes in controlled and crisp Public Folder migrations. The Exchange Migration tool has fully automatized migration process to save your valuable administrative time.

  • Cross-forest public folder migrations
  • Fully synchronized mailbox migrations – both ways, source to target, target to source.
  • Undo any migrations task errors with the Rollback feature
  • Scheduler to auto-start your migrations at specified date and time

  • Move users’ mailboxes within two same or different AD forests.
  • Migrate mailboxes along with their rules and permissions
  • True co-existence between migrated and non-migrated mailboxes
  • Office 365 / Exchange migration within cross-domain and cross-forest environment
Cross-forest Migrations

Salient Features

The Software's advanced features and capabilities make Exchange Migration easier at each step.

Pre-migration Analysis for a Risk-free Migration

Pre-migration Analysis for a Risk-free Migration The Exchange Migration tool lets you plan for unforeseen migration challenges, even before the execution. The pre-migration analysis feature enables you to evaluate the approximate time for the migration job, based on your network speed and the number of machines in use. This feature is helpful to plan and deal with all the upcoming challenges efficiently.

Real-time Migration Alerts and Reports

Real-time Migration Alerts and Reports The solution offers real-time notifications either in the software console via “View Reports” option or straight to your specified email account to keep you updated with the live status of the migration project. These alerts provide a complete job summary reflecting its start time, completion time, status, success/job failure, etc.

Web-based Reporting Console

Web-based Reporting Console A migration report shows all information about the migrated items (item counts and migration item size). It will also show the remaining items in the batch. You can open this report in web browser via certain administrative permissions to view and start/stop the migration process.

Job-based Migration Process

Job-based Migration Process To efficiently migrate hundreds of mailboxes in tiny groups, Exchange Migration software constructs a Job to manage the tedious migration process better. With mailbox and public folder migrations, you can create multiple jobs and set the start time accordingly. A "Migrated Items" column in the software task list displays the current number of migrated items and refreshes it every five minutes with the most recent data.

Agent Configuration for Migration Load-sharing

Agent Configuration for Migration Load-sharing You can assign migration tasks to multiple Agent systems connected to the network to reduce the load on the server. The Agent Machine configuration is handy for carrying out bigger migrations projects. This helps you migrate even if you don't have enough server resources.


Auto-Synchronization Our solution provides true coexistence between the migrated and un-migrated mailboxes. The Exchange Migrator tool allows for direct synchronization of the changes made in the targeted mailboxes. It reflects them immediately on the other side in the following manners - source to target, target to source, and both ways.

Multilingual Support

Multilingual Support To help businesses all over the world with a wide array of migrations, the software supports multiple languages like Deutsche, Espanola, and Italia. Also, it migrates emails in all languages precisely because of its UNICODE support.

Migration Rollback

Migration Rollback The software assists in overcoming a failed or incorrect migration through its Migration Rollback feature. It will overturn the migrated mailboxes from destination mailboxes and undo the whole job quickly. After this, you can start a second migration without any issues.

Migrate Rules & Permissions, Passwords & SID History

Migrate Rules & Permissions, Passwords & SID History This solution isn’t limited to migrating mailboxes and public folders; it also migrates complete mailbox properties and permissions – such as Outlook profiles, Outlook rules, and folder permissions, mailbox permissions, and GAL list. Additionally, it can migrate everything to the targeted mailbox – even the total SID history and Passwords.

Express Edition – Quick Exchange Migration without Outlook

Express Edition – Quick Exchange Migration without Outlook Express Edition is a compact version of the tool and is ideal for smaller migrations. It supports migration from Exchange to Exchange, Exchange to Office 365, and vice versa. It properly maps the source and destination and provides a complete migration report in a CSV file.

Yes. In addition to complex Office 365 / Exchange Server migration, this tool can backup up Exchange/Office 365 mailboxes. To export the Exchange Server 2010 to PST file, you need to create a Backup Project and then create and run a Backup job. And if your only goal is Exchange/Office 365 backup & PST import (and not recovery or migration), then you can use a specialized tool, Kernel Exchange Backup & Restore.
To prepare for the migration you will perform, use the Pre-migration Analysis feature of the software. You just need to have the Source and Target credentials with you. Try this feature to estimate the time required to complete the migration.
Yes, you can try it for free. The Software is available for a free trial before purchase. All you must do is fill up a quick download form and submit it; the Software gets downloaded afterward. After receiving your download query, the Kernel support team will immediately contact you to provide free migration access to let you save the migrated items, depending upon your requirements (based on the number of mailbox migration etc.).
This Software can be installed on any standalone server, but we recommend installing it on a client machine of either the Source or Destination domains (in the same LAN). Also, ensure that you have MS Outlook installed and configured on the system where the Software will be installed.
This Software definitely migrates public folders from Exchange and Office 365. The user needs to create a Public Folder Migration job in their migration Project.
Not many migration software supports Exchange SBS 2003, but the tool supports it. Exchange Online migration can access the public folder data from Exchange 2003 and migrate to Office 365.
Yes. The tool supports migrating Public Folders from Exchange 2010 to Office 365. You can create a job for public folder migration and run this job to migrate public folders from Exchange 2010 to Office 365.
Yes, it is possible. While scheduling the migration, the Kernel Migrator gives you the option to allow or deny migration on specified weekdays.
Yes. Users can take backup of Exchange as well as Office 365 mailboxes to formats like PST, MSG, and EML.
Yes, it can fulfill your need (though it is designed for complex Office 365/Exchange migrations). It can directly access the mailboxes from your client’s Office 365 account and save to the PST file.
However, if you are looking for a specialized tool to back up Office 365/Exchange (or import PST to Office 365/Exchange), then try Kernel Office 365 Backup & Restore.
Yes, our tool supports exporting Exchange Online emails to EML format. You can create a Backup Project for your Exchange Online account and save the mailbox items in EML format.
The Software provides different mapping options like Map automatically, Map using CSV, etc., using which users can automatically map mailboxes.

This issue may arise if the user mailbox with the same name is unavailable in the target server (or it is available with a different name). In this condition, you can select the source mailbox and map it with some other mailbox in the target. Alternately, you can create a new mailbox in the target (using the Create Mailbox option in the tool).
Yes, you can migrate user mailboxes and public folders from one Exchange to another Exchange Server within the same forest/domain using Exchange Migrator tool. However, the intra-forest migration is possible from Exchange 2003 to 2007/2010, and similarly, you can read the other Exchange migration deployment scenarios.
Unfortunately, you cannot directly migrate from Exchange Server 2003 to Exchange Server 2013 within the same forest, as Microsoft does not support coexistence between the two versions. It is a Microsoft’s limitation. However, you can perform cross-forest migrations from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2013 using the Exchange Migration tool.
Yes, it is possible. The tool supports mailbox migration of different languages and characters– including English, Deutsche, Española, Italia. So whatever languages your source and destination mailboxes are – you’re able to migrate all special language characters without any data loss.
