Before creating our own email migration solution, we tried a variety of email migration tools. Here are some things to check for. We considered the following factors before selecting a tool:
You shouldn't require a Ph.D. in computer science to utilize the email migration program since it should be simple to use.
The migration tool ought to be available for free download and use without requiring you to interact with a salesperson.
For your service provider, availability:
So that you don't have to deal with numerous tools at once, the email migration tool should be compatible with both your current and new email provider.
Security & dependability:
The email migration tool should provide a high degree of security (see "How can I verify whether an email migration tool is legit?"), preferably do a health check on your mailboxes prior to the transfer, and give you clear instructions and error messages in the event that anything goes wrong.
Both the consumer and the software developer should be treated fairly by the pricing structure. Because of this, the cost of using our program is based on how much data you want to transfer: Use MailJerry to migrate small mailboxes at no cost or buy a single or monthly license for unlimited transfers.
Synchronization of data:
You should be able to do a resync after the first migration so that data received in your previous account may be transferred to your account without having to restart the migration.
The presence of support
You can sometimes receive inquiries about your transfer. When that happens, a FAQ section that gives you a response right away is helpful. However, you should be able to contact the support team as well so that an "actual person" may address your concerns or provide an answer to your queries.
