What is an Item?

What is an Item?​

Answer:

An item defines the mailbox, or other data, that we are migrating from and to. This information is used to find and connect the two entities together for migration.

The settings on an item include:

  1. The primary SMTP email address of the Source and Destination items.
  2. Credentials used to access the Source and Destination items (if you are not using administrative credentials)​.

Every setting on the Project is applied to all items associated.

Note: For settings that are represented as checkboxes, only  "selected" settings are applied to the Project. Not selecting a checkbox does not disable a selected setting inherited from the Project.

   Item Settings:
​Setting​​Description​
Email Address​​The primary SMTP email address for the migration to migrate.
User NameThe user name used to access the mailbox. This is only required if administrative credentials are not configured.
PasswordThe password used to access the mailbox. This is only required if administrative credentials are not configured.
I don't know the username or password to this mailboxIf selected, we will request the credentials from the end user by sending them an email. The email will contain a unique secure URL in which the end user may specify the credentials directly to the system. Note that email is sent through our SMTP gateway, which leverages your MX records for delivery.
