What’s changing

Google added support for migrating Microsoft Exchange In-Place Archives to the Google Workspace Migrate beta. Admins can use this new functionality to migrate the content of their user’s Exchange In-Place Archives to Google Workspace. Additionally, admins can:

  • Make migrated archive mail only visible in Google Vault (not Gmail).
  • Make attachments of archived mail uploaded to Google Drive only visible in Google Vault. If you turn on this setting, large email attachments will be visible in Vault (not Drive).
  • Choose how to apply labels to archive folders in Gmail.

Who’s impacted

Admins only

Why it’s important

Previously, it wasn’t possible to migrate archived email from Exchange to Gmail. This feature makes it easy for admins to migrate both active and archived email to Google Workspace.
