Supported Systems

The audriga migration tool uses the EWS protocol to migrate data to Amazon WorkMail.
The list below describes the supported source platforms and the content types that can migrated from each of the platforms:

Microsoft Exchange 2007/2010/2013 EmailsContactsCalendar TasksNotes
Office 365/Exchange Online EmailsContactsCalendar TasksNotes
Google Apps for Work2 EmailsContactsCalendar Tasks
IMAP/POP3 Emails

2 Gmail consumer accounts are not officially supported. Authentication problems might arise and only emails via IMAP can be migrated.

EWS limitations:

  • The owner of the mailbox will become the organizer for each of their appointments.
  • Meeting participant status (accepted or declined) will not be migrated.
  • The service tries to resolve system internal addresses e.g. X500 addresses and replace them with valid email addresses. If it is not possible, the addresses will be removed.
  • The service also filters invalid entries like non-valid URLs in Website fields which are not accepted by the destination platform.

Amazon WorkMail specific limitations:

  • Emails with attachments can only migrated when attachment size is smaller than 23 Mbytes.
  • Contact profile pictures will be copied as attachments of contacts but will not be shown as profile picture.
  • Distribution lists cannot be migrated.
  • No duplicate detection for note items.

Specific limitations:

Certain limitations may apply due to the specific combination of the source and the destination. This includes:

  • Display of certain email messages (special MIME formats) may differ on the destination side
  • Mapping of item properties (e.g., if not supported by the destination)
  • Mapping of folder permissions

If in doubt, we recommend migrating a few mailboxes initially to check the results.
