Many organizations have moved from on-premises emailing platforms like GroupWise to cloud-based emailing platform such as Office 365.
That’s because, though GroupWise offers features like instant messaging, document management, calendaring and more, it lacks features like scalability, ease-of-use, etc. that are available with Office 365.
In this post, we will help you with an easy, step-by-step guide to move mailboxes from GroupWise to on-premises Outlook or Office 365.
