Having a proper strategy is a must when it comes to streamlining your organization’s plan of transferring emails from Gmail to Gmail. The strategy must address all the areas of the migration to avoid loopholes which, otherwise, can become roadblocks.

It is equally important to choose the right Gmail migration solution to be able to replicate the source Gmail environment in the destination. At CloudFuze, we offer industry-leading Gmail to Gmail migration functionalities that can enable your organization to perform the switch comprehensively and securely.

Challenges of Transferring Emails from Gmail to Gmail

Migrating emails from Gmail to Gmail at a large-scale while preserving all the email properties becomes a challenging feat for businesses small and large. Without a proper migration tool that eliminates manual intervention, it becomes challenging to:

  • Migrate email attachments
  • Migrate sent items
  • Migrate junk and draft emails
  • Preserve deleted emails and read/unread status
  • Migrate calendar events
  • Preserve calendar event timestamps
  • Migrate calendar event attachments

With our Gmail to Gmail migration tool, your organization can steer clear of the challenges in migrating all the important properties of emails. Our managed migration service further ensures that your IT team does not have to do the heavy lifting associated with planning and performing the migration.
