The Microsoft Exchange Scanner is a new connector available since migration-center 3.2.6. The Exchange scanner can extract messages (emails) from Exchange mailboxes and use it as input into migration-center, from where it can be processed and migrated to other systems supported by the various mc importers.
The Microsoft Exchange Scanner currently supports Microsoft Exchange 2010. It uses the Independentsoft JWebServices for Exchange Java API to access an Exchange mailbox and extract emails including attachments and properties.
The Exchange scanner connects to the Exchange Server with a specified Exchange mail account and can extract messages from one (or multiple) folder(s) within the current user’s or other user’s mailboxes. The account used to connect to exchange must have delegate access permission to the other accounts from which mails will be scanned. All subfolders of the specified folder(s) will automatically be processed as well; an option for excluding select subfolders from scanning is also available. See chapter Exchange scanner parameters below for more information about the features and configuration parameters available in the Exchange scanner.
In addition to the emails themselves, attachments and properties of the respective messages are also extracted. The messages and included attachments are stored as .eml files on disk, while the properties are written to the mc database, as is the standard with all migration-center scanners.
After a scan has completed, the newly scanned email messages and their properties are available for further processing in migration-center.
To create a new Exchange Scanner job, specify the respective adapter type in the Scanner Properties window – from the list of available connectors, “Exchange” must be selected. Once the adapter type has been selected, the Parameters list will be populated with the parameters specific to the selected adapter type, in this case the Exchange connector's parameters.
The Properties window of a scanner can be accessed by double-clicking a scanner in the list, or selecting the Properties button or entry from the toolbar or context menu.
Note: Configuration parameters ending with (*) are mandatory.
