The Outlook scanner can extract messages from an Outlook mailbox and use it as input into migration-center, from where it can be processed and migrated to other system supported by the various mc importers.
The Microsoft Outlook Scanner currently supports Microsoft Outlook 2007 and 2010 and uses the Moyosoft Java Outlook Connector API to access an Outlook mailbox and extract emails including attachments and properties.
The Outlook scanner does not work with Java 11. Please use Java 8 for the Jobserver that will run the scanner.
The Outlook scanner connects to a specified Outlook mail account and can extract messages from one (or multiple) folder(s) existing within that accounts mailbox. 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 Outlook scanner parameters below for more information about the features and configuration parameters available in the Outlook 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 .msg 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 Outlook Scanner job, specify the respective adapter type in the Scanner Properties window – from the list of available connectors, “Outlook” 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 Outlook connector’s.
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.
