Is there anyway to migrate an IMAP mailbox to a shared inbox? I've seen a solution where the Shared Inbox gets assigned a licence, is migrated, then unlicenced. Is this the only way to do it without generating a PST file?
I have the same request! i have 20 odd IMAP 1emails (Cpanel type) and want to consolidate the domain and email into office 365
i have done the domain portion...all good! next
as i understand it, you can migrate imap only to a the extra same email box so:
email@example.com ---> firstname.lastname@example.org
and you need a real email on office365 side - so you have to buy or assign a license.
and only after days of syncing and waiting for the migratation to give "sucess" then you can convert that email to a shared email - you can then remove the license you bought! oh and as i understand it you can't remove the user that is attach to the shared email account - so you end up with user accounts that you don't necessarily need
