The process to move your email services to an icCloud service can be described as four distinct steps:

  1. Service Configuration
  2. Domain Name Propagation
  3. Device Configuration
  4. Data Migration

Innovative Concepts staff will perform steps #1 and #2 with zero impact to your business. More importantly, step #1 will be completed before we tell the world to begin sending your email to the cloud service. This way no email will get lost during the transition.

Generally, step #2 will be initiated near the close of business on a day of our mutual agreement. This allows the world enough time to see the change.  Most cloud services only require a simple record to be added to your DNS, but there are other considerations we will discuss before anything is changed.

Step #3 will allow all your devices to see any of the new email that came in overnight. We feel that it is more important to address any new email than it is to have older ones. As a result, we first focus on getting all your users access to the email that was sent to the cloud service.

Step #4 is the process of uploading all your old email, contact, calendar, etc. into the cloud service. Depending on the speed of your Internet access and the amount of data that needs to be synchronized, this process can very greatly in the time it takes to complete.
