Overview

  • Using LegacyFlo you can import email data from an email account to another account on SkyConnect or Vaultastic.

Preparation

Before using LegacyFlo to access email data from source servers using the IMAP protocol, confirm the following

  1. The emails to be migrated are available in the mailboxes hosted on the source server. Emails that have been downloaded using the POP protocol and deleted from the server, cannot be migrated using this option.
  2. Your email service provider supports IMAP access to mailboxes.
  3. You should have the rights and the capability to reset the passwords on the source in order to access the mail boxes.
  4. If the source server is hosted at your own premises, you have provisioned sufficient Internet bandwidth to transfer the mailbox data. (This will not apply to SkyConnect, Vaultastic, O365, Yahoo or GSuite.)
  5. The source email service provider should allows large email downloaded via IMAP without any throttling. 
  6. You have configured your email server to allow IMAP access as mentioned in the sections below.
  7. In addition to the above, GMail servers need additional configuration depending on whether you are using less secure or OAuth access. Follow the instructions given in the table below:
