Microsoft FastTrack was designed to help you move your on premise Exchange email system to Office 365 “smoothly and with confidence”. But, when you read the “fine print” you discover that FastTrack will NOT migrate email archive data, including compliance-related journal data. The problem with this oversight is that most organizations planning to migrate to Office 365 similarly have a legacy email archive that should also be migrated. In fact, in a recent survey by Osterman Research, 64% of Office 365 migrations include a legacy email archive, so this lack of support is a major “road block” (or at least speed bump) to fully migrating to Office 365.

First, what is an inactive mailbox? Simply put, an inactive mailbox is one that is no longer used because the mailbox owner (employee) has left the company, leaving the mailbox orphaned. It is very common for mailboxes to remain in the Exchange system after an employee leaves the company for several reasons including standard company practices, lack of company processes, legal reasons i.e. anticipated lawsuits, and regulatory concerns. These orphaned mailboxes can become an issue later, for example if an organization decides to move their email system to the cloud.
I’ve been talking to many Microsoft Office 365 Partners asking them why they almost always avoid the companion email archive migration project. One of the most common answers is: "we just don't have the knowledge of the many email archives and their particular idiosyncrasies; let alone attempt to migrate one of them." This answer baffled me since an archive migration can generate 3-5x the revenue of a single project not to mention, if done correctly, can generate a 90% profit. You may be asking yourself how….? Well, let me explain.
