Location of Migrated E-mails


E-mail that has been migrated from the old system will appear in the Inbox of your new e-mail account but the e-mails are actually located in a subfolder of your account.

Instructions provided here demonstrate how to find old e-mails that have been migrated into the new account using a Web browser and the Outlook Web App (OWA). You must first sign into OWA in order to follow these instructions.
