In this article, we will learn how to transfer email from Google Apps to Office 365 using an automated solution. The manual method provided by Microsoft is more on the complex and lengthy side. While an automated solution can achieve the migration results in a smaller time frame with easy steps.

Cloud transforms the business in a scalable, innovative and efficient way. It has what it takes to ease user collaboration and make them more productive. And currently, there are two successful cloud productivity suites doing just that- G Suite (Google Apps) & Office 365. In the last decade, there is a growing trend that Google Apps are more suitable for small business while Office 365 is preferred by mid and large scale businesses. The reason is the unmatchable sync between the desktop and web-based applications of Office.

But the focus of this article is not the reason, but the method to complete the migration in an efficient manner.

A Brief About the Manual Method

The Manual method defined in the Microsoft Docs use the capabilities of IMAP to synchronize the data between G Suite (formerly Google Apps) and Office 365.

This migration method only migrates emails. The other mailbox items such as calendars, contacts, and documents need to be migrated using separate methods. This makes the process lengthy and time-consuming. It can take weeks to complete.

So, instead of executing the complex and time-consuming manual method, users often look for cloud migration services and software.
