​How do I manually set forwards during a migration, on a per-user basis and from the individual users' portal, when the Source is G Suite or Gmail?

Answer:

This article explains how to manually set forwards during a migration, on a per-user basis and from the individual users' portal, when the Source is G Suite or Gmail.

Notes:

  • Forwards are useful if you are migrating users in batches, and switching some users over to the new Destination before others.
  • Forwards allow for mail coexistence, but not for calendar free/busy coexistence.
  • To set forwards on a per-user basis and from the Google admin console, refer to KB004374.
  • To set forwards in bulk using the MigrationWiz Management Console, refer to KB005168.

 

To deploy a manual forward rule to a Gmail/Google account:

  1. ​Sign in to your Gmail/Google account.​​​​
  2. ​Click on Settings.
  3. Locate the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  4. Click Add a forwarding address.
  5. Enter the email address to forward to.
  6. A confirmation email will be sent to the forward mailbox.
  7. Validate the confirmation by logging in to the forward mailbox.
  8. Go back to your account.
  9. Select the forward mode.

We recommend not saving a copy locally, because when you migrate the mailbox to the Destination, you will end up with duplicates.
