The benefits of using our EAS Archive Migration

Fine tune your move for success

A comprehensive service

As part of the migration service we can help you profile exactly what you have, and present options for dealing with and migrating a variety of different and site-specific scenarios. For example:

  • Merging multiple archives belonging to the same person,
  • Handling (and optionally re-writing different email addressing conventions)
  • Identifying leavers, orphaned mailboxes, etc.

We can also advise on and fit around your overall Microsoft 365 migration strategy (if you haven’t already migrated), working hand-in-hand with your IT team or a 3rd-party Microsoft service provider to deliver a successful outcome.

Migrate Notes Archives into Exchange

If you need to migrate an IBM Lotus Notes environment to Exchange (e.g. following a merger or acquisition), our migration service includes high-speed Notes to Microsoft Exchange conversion which takes place ‘on the fly’.

As part of the Notes to Exchange migration you’ll also benefit from:

  • Shortcut conversion
  • Decryption of encrypted Notes emails
  • Hi fidelity message conversion
  • Re-writing of internal email addresses

All of these elements ensure emails are fully functional for end users, and discoverable for legal and HR teams in the new environment


What our Microsoft 365 email journaling and ediscovery solution offers

High performance

Your data is extracted from ‘live’ or static Vaults, using the optimum EV extraction techniques & unbeatable ingestion speeds into Microsoft 365.

One clean step

Your data is then moved in one step – there’s no interim storage or formats that could compromise the integrity of your data or add extra cost & time to your migration.

Seamless experience

Even if you’ve been synching EV shortcuts, deleted items often slip the net. We will ensure the end user’s experience is as seamless as possible, & that there’s no surprises ‘post-migration’ (like deleted items re-appearing).

Flexible data mapping

There’s granular control over what gets migrated where in Microsoft 365. E.g.you could move items older than 2 years to In-Place Archives & move deleted items into hidden RIF folders to ensure eDiscovery completeness.


As part of the migration you’ll get detailed chain-of-custody reports showing time-stamped, 1:1 mappings of the item ID in the EV archive & the new ItemID created in Microsoft 365, enabling your business to meet compliance objectives. There’s also full support for migrating legacy EV Journal archives into Microsoft 365.

Advanced trouble shooting

If an item fails to migrate (usually due to corruption in the EV archive or a temporary network problem), our service includes remediation: In short, if we can fix your email we will. If the email is damaged beyond repair, we still might be able to salvage all or part of it for your legal department.
