This topic provides information about how to create a custom folder map.

Before You Begin

Before you perform this procedure, identify the folder names that are used on the source server.


You can create a custom folder map by modifying the default folder mapping table that is installed with the Microsoft Transporter Suite for Internet Mail. By default, the folder mapping table is installed in the D:\Program Files\Microsoft Transporter Tools\Config folder.

To create a custom folder map

  1. Locate the default folder mapping table file, Foldermap.xml.

  2. Copy the file and change the file name.

  3. Use an XML editor to open the new file. Edit the names of the source folders that correspond to the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 default folders.

  4. Save the file.

Mapping to Default Folders

Default folders use special handling and are created by default when a mailbox is created. The following are the default folders that are supported in Exchange 2007:

  • Inbox

  • Outbox

  • Sent Items

  • Drafts

  • Deleted Items

  • Junk E-mail

  • Journal

  • Notes

  • Calendar

The following example shows a folder mapping that is defined in the default Foldermap.xml file.

Xml  Copy Code
<Folder path="Spam">
<Property SpecialFolder="Junk E-mail" /> 

If the junk e-mail folder on the source server is named Garbage, you would edit the the Foldermap.xml file to reflect the folder name on the source server, as shown in the following example.

Xml  Copy Code
<Folder path="Garbage">
<Property SpecialFolder="Junk E-mail" /> 

Mapping to Non-Default Folders

Non-default folders are folders that are created by users after a mailbox is created. The Microsoft Transporter Suite for Internet Mail also supports mapping to non-default folders. To create a custom mapping folder, customize the copied default Foldermap.xml file.

The following example shows you how to create a mapping for a source server folder named Important Mail to an Exchange folder named Important that exists under the Inbox folder.

Xml  Copy Code
<Folder path="Important Mail">
<Property Name="Inbox/Important" />
