Question

I am currently running IMail but would like to convert to GMS for all my messaging requirements. Is there an easy way to do this?

Answer

Yes. Gordano provide a tool specifically designed to allow customers to port from IMail over to a GMS solution.

To obtain a copy of the porting tool please contact sales@gordano.com and request a copy.

The conversion utility will convert information in the IMail registry and directories into a standard GMS configuration file. This can be loaded into an existing GMS setup (which could be a default demonstration installation on a new machine).

Full instructions on the use of the porting utility will be included with the utility provided by our sales team.

Note: GMS supports up to 20 aliases per account. If more than 20 aliases are found, the first 20 are converted explicitly and the remainder handled via the GMS ‘unknown user action’.

Note: The IMail passwords are converted.

Note: GMS products handle virtual domains differently from IMail. GMS associates virtual domains with a normal domain known as the base domain. Each virtual account has a common postfix to distinguish it from a similar account in the base domin.

Conversion of virtual domains is done in two phases. The first is handled by imail_to_ntmail which converts an IMail virtual domain to a full GMS domain. A second utility full_to_virtual allows the converted domains then to be modified to GMS virtual domains.
