LuxSci's tools and experienced support staff make migration from your current provider to LuxSci's email services a snap!
Managed Email Migration
LuxSci can migrate all of your user's existing email for you. When you have a lot of email, a lot of folders, and/or a lot of users and your old email provider supports IMAP. NOTE: calendars, address books & tasks are NOT automatically migrated as part of "email migration." These can be manually imported. See below for more details. With managed email migration, LuxSci can:
This is the ideal solution if you have a lot to move and/or do not want to do it yourself. There is a small migration fee involved, based on the number of users being migrated and any special complexity in the migration.

Managed Email Migration Pricing
Managed Migration Pricing (a one-time-fee):
Custom price for more users, more than 2 copy passes, unusually large or complex scenarios, or other special considerations.
In the case where IMAP is not available at your old provider, but you do have your email in Outlook PST files, you can mail us DVDs or hard drives containing this data and we can manually convert and import it for a fee of $100/GB or fraction thereof (special pricing available for large uploads).
Self-Service Email Migration
There are several ways that users and/or administrators can migrate their own email to LuxSci at no additional cost.
User by User: If you have situations where you need to migrate users separately or in groups such that some users will be using your old system while others switch to LuxSci; we have a solution. We can set up a special migration domain for you on LuxSci to which you can forward email from your old system for the users who have been migrated. This email will then be delivered to their new mailboxes on LuxSci where they can effectively send and receive email using their real address (the inbound email will merely pass through your old servers on its way to them). When all users are migrated, you simply change your DNS, remove the migration domain, and you are done.
Bulk User and Alias Creation
LuxSci's bulk user and alias creation tools allow you to use a CSV (comma separated values) file to quickly add all of your users and aliases to your account.

Migration of Other Data
Users: Users can be created easily in bulk using either a multi-user creation form or by uploading a comma-delimited or tab-delimited file of users into our administrative interface.
Aliases: Aliases can be created easily in bulk using either a multi-alias creation form or by uploading a comma-delimited or tab-delimited file of aliases into our administrative interface.
Domains: If you have many domains, LuxSci can add them for you automatically using its API.
Calendars, Tasks, and Contacts: LuxSci's WebAides support these items and you can import your data to the WebAides using CSV files on a per-user basis. Alternately, if you use Outlook, you can use LuxSci's proprietary "WebAideSync" plug-in to copy all of this data from your Outlook into your LuxSci accounts and then keep it synchronized thereafter.
Minimize the Transition Time
If keeping the transition time to a minimum or having control over exactly when the transition occurs is important to you, LuxSci's technicians can help you with a plan to achieve your goals.
Ideally, it is possible for the transition to happen in as little as 15-20 minutes on a date and time of your choosing. However, this requires some preparation that we can assist you in planning.
