Migrate Data from Lotus cc:Mail Mobile

Migration Wizard can extract mailbox data from the local post office that is installed in Lotus cc:Mail Mobile for Windows.

Tip   Because each remote user copies the same files to the network, create a directory for each user.

To migrate data from Lotus cc:Mail Mobile for Windows:

  1. The remote user sends a message containing his or her password to the administrator in charge of the migration. The user delivers all pending messages, including the one with the password, to the post office and retrieves any remaining messages waiting in the post office.
  2. The user deletes messages that he or she does not want to migrate.
  3. The user runs Mbrbcl.bat to clear any discrepancies in the Mlandata and Clandata files, and to reclaim free space in the mobile post office.
  4. The user copies the local post office (Mlandata, Clandata, and all USR* files) across the remote dial-up or direct network connection to a location specified in advance.
  5. The administrator receives the mail and notes the password.
  6. The administrator connects to the server on which the user copied the local post office.
  7. The administrator runs Migration Wizard, specifying the user's mobile post office (which is named LOCALPO) and password.
  8. The administrator migrates all the data from the mobile user's post office.
