How to Migrate an Existing Outlook Account to Arrowmail


If you don't have much in the way of an existing email archive, then starting afresh with a new Arrowmail Exchange Mailbox account is straightforward.

If you've already been using Outlook for several years, you've probably accumulated a large archive or emails, a long Contacts list, and you're used to using the Calendar and Tasks to organise your business life.
The prospect of moving it all to a new system can be daunting and if you think that there's any risking of losing your data in the process then, it may just not be worth it.
This would be a pity as it's these heavy users of Outlook that will benefit the most from our system.

Here's a quick summary of the benefits our system will bring:-

Instead of just being available from one PC, all you Outlook data can be accessed on any PC with Outlook setup on it, from a web-browser or on a Smartphone.
Wherever you access it, it's the same set of data.

Instead of your precious Outlook data being stored in just one PST file on one PC (and maybe on some backup media, if your good), a full copy will be stored, and kept synchronised, on every PC that has Outlook setup on it plus a master copy on our servers.

Spam and virus protection.


This page will take you through the steps required to transfer all you current setup from a
stand-alone Outlook account, using a PST file, to linking Outlook to an Exchange server.

Throughout the process we are always copying data so that the original data will continue to exist indefinitely, albeit frozen in time.

If you are currently using Outlook with another Exchange server and want to move to our Exchange server, it's a 2 stage process: transfer everything from the Old Exchange server to a PST file and then from the PST file to the new Exchange server.
This is because you can't have 2 exchange server accounts setup in one Outlook profile at the same time.

If you should ever want to move away from our system then you would initially transfer all your Outlook data to a local PST file.



First Steps

The first thing to do is to locate your PST file and check it's size.
