Migrating to Exchange Online

Some organizations that currently use Deskmail, Google Apps, or Windows Live may wish to migrate to Exchange Online as soon as possible. UW-IT has arranged for a third party consulting firm called Comparex to assist with conversions.

Engaging Comparex results in a seamless migration experience for users and local IT staff. At $25 per mailbox, the charge for this service is far less than the cost of staff time when using a more manual method of conversion.

  • For individual migration requests, please use the following request form. A budget number is required for these transactions.
  • You must change email forwarding to UW Office365 for new messages to arrive to the UW Exchange mailbox. Use the UW NetID Manage Portal
  • If you are considering moving your entire unit, department or college to Exchange Online using Comparex, please contact help@uw.edu so our team can meet with you to discuss your needs, timing, and any pros and cons.

Manual migration instructions are located here.
