Email Migration

If you need to migrate mailboxes from a different provider then login to your SiteDart account, create the mailboxes and then open a support ticket requesting a migration. If you’ve purchased the taxPRO Business or Professional plan you may request up to 5 email accounts to be migrated free of charge. A migration fee is applied case-by-case.

Step by Step

  1. Login to your SiteDart account and create the mailboxes. My Products & Services > Product Details > Accounts > Add Mailbox
  2. Collect the necessary info from the existing email service: IMAP server address, current passwords (for optimal security please create temporary passwords for the migration).
  3. Send your migration request by opening a support ticket with the following information: source email address, source email password, source IMAP server address. For migration of multiple mailboxes, you can attach a CSV file with these details.
  4. Our team supervises the migration and lets you know once it has been completed. The duration of migration depends on the total size of the mailboxes, the original mail server's speed, and the already scheduled migrations - but it's usually completed within 2-3 business days.
  5. Once we have completed the migration we will update your DNS so your email will begin flowing on our servers.
  6. Setup your email clients (Outlook, Windows Mail, etc.) using the new email settings we have provided for you. You may need to delete your email account and re-add it with the appropriate settings.
  7. Lastly, you may import your contacts and calendars into the webmail and your email client.

 

Contact and Calendar Migration

We can also import your Contacts and Calendar. To request this kind of migration, attach the exported *.vcf or *.csv files (for Contacts) and the *.ics files (for Calendar) in the Support ticket.
