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.
Before migrating email, please review the UW Appropriate Use page and note that while UW Office 365 is HIPAA- and FERPA-compatible, UW Google is only FERPA-compatible.
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.
Start by configuring Outlook with both your UW Google account and your UW Office 365 account.
When entering your UW email address, use @gamail.uw.edu (this is not a typo) for your UW Google email address (i.e., your UWNetID@gamail.uw.edu).
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.
