Upload from a mailbox to Vaultastic V4 Inactive store

Overview

  • The Inactive Store of Vaultastic Version 4 is where you can upload data files such as PST, EML(in ZIP format), MBOX of MAILDIR.
  • These files can remain on the Inactive Store till you download them or copy the data to Active Store for discovery.
  • There are multiple ways you can upload data files to the Inactive Store. These methods are highlighted in the topic here.
  • This topic discusses the method of using LegacyFlo to upload data from IMAP mailboxes using LegacyFlo.

Prepare the SOURCE SERVER to allow IMAP access from LegacyFlo

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. You should have the rights and the capability to reset the passwords on the source in order to access the mailboxes OR should be able to delegate the access to a user whose credentials are known.
  3. 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.)
  4. The source email service provider should allow large emails downloaded via IMAP without any throttling. 
  5. Your email service provider supports IMAP access to mailboxes. You have configured your email server to allow IMAP access as mentioned in the sections below.
  6. For Gmail Servers,
  • 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: 

GMail with less secure app access

  1. For O365 servers,
  • Need confirmation from the O365 support team that there is no throttling on accessing mail from mailboxes on O365 using the IMAP protocol.
  • O365 servers need the following configurations to be done
  1. Provide delegated access to mailboxes on O365 
Follow the instructions given here.
  1.  Suppress read receipts

Run the following cmdlet

Set-ImapSettings -SuppressReadReceipt $false cmdlet

Note: This step has to be executed for each mailbox to be migrated.

The request type used to submit a LegacyFlo request will depend on the source type. The table below gives the details of the preparation and request parameters for different source types:
