Update 3/20/2017: The documentation for modern public folder migration to Exchange Online has now been released. Please go here for the announcement.
Right on the heels of our recent TAP program announcement, we wanted to see if there are customers who would like to help us validate migration of modern public folders from Exchange 2013/2016 to Exchange Online (EXO). This is a scenario that at this time we do not support, but plan on doing so. Estimated availability of bits for testing those topologies (subject to change):
Exchange 2013 public folders > EXO: September 2016
Exchange 2016 public folders > EXO: November 2016
In order to participate, you will need to enroll into the above mentioned TAP program.
If you are interested in trying out the migration, please contact the PF migration team at (address removed due to final release) with the following details:
Tenant domain name in Exchange Online
Total size of Public Folders
Number of PF mailboxes
Largest Public Folder size
Total count of Public Folders
Count of Mail enabled Public Folders
Which clients are used by users to access PF?
Number of users
Number of exchange server installations
Is Exchange Hybrid setup done?
When is the plan to migrate users to EXO?
We will review the details and see if we can on-board the organization into TAP/Beta program. We are looking for customers with >500GB of public folder data or >50,000 folders.
Let us know!
