The Collabra Share source extractor imports forums and categories into Microsoft Exchange Server as public folders and subfolders. Documents within forums are converted to messages, and any attached files are migrated with the document as message attachments. Message threads are migrated to Microsoft Exchange Server as messages with the original title as the conversation topic.
The source extractor migrates the following forum and category properties:
|Collabra forum||Microsoft Exchange Server public folder|
|Forum name||Public folder name|
|Default permissions||None, Author, Publishing Editor|
|Category name||Subfolder name|
Note Forums can be located outside the Collabra Share database directory structure at the administrator's discretion. However, the Migration Wizard does not detect forums outside the Collabra directory structure. To migrate these forums, run the Migration Wizard a second time and type the path to their location.
