Migrate from UW Office 365 to UW Google

On This Page

Overview

Migrating email, calendars, and contacts from UW Office 365 to UW Google is a manual process. This guide uses the Outlook email client provided as part of UW Office 365 ProPlus to facilitate the manual migration. If you don’t already have Outlook, you can download it using the link below.

Change UW Email Forwarding to UW Google

Before migrating data, change your UW email forwarding to UW Google (displayed as “UW G Suite”) so all new email is sent to your UW Google account.

Migrate Email

Start by configuring Outlook with both your UW Google account and your UW Office 365 account.

The only trick is to use @gamail.uw.edu for your UW Google email address (i.e., your UWNetID@gamail.uw.edu) and use your standard UWNetID@uw.edu email address to auto-discover your UW Office 365 account.

Note: Please spell the domain exactly as written above; it is not a typo.

Once both accounts are configured in Outlook, you can copy email folders between the accounts within Outlook to migrate email between the two. Moving folders can be unreliable, so copying folders is strongly recommended.
