The following instructions are designed to assist you in migrating mail from Consumer Gmail.
- Consumer Gmail username and password for each account.
- Less secure app access should be enabled for each gmail account we're about to use - https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps
- In order to connect to the Gmail account, log in to each account in the same web browser. Only the log in action is required, so it is ok to close the tab once logged in and log into the next required account.

CloudM Migrate Hosted makes migration as simple as possible. The only prerequisite is the installation of the CloudM Migrate Hosted application. When accessing CloudM Migrate Hosted for the first time you will be prompted to install the app, simply authorise and you're all set.
Source Platform - Consumer Gmail
Choose Consumer Gmail as the migration source and enter your Consumer Gmail settings into CloudM Migrate and then click next.
When migrating from Consumer Gmail, all settings are preconfigured. You simply need to enter user credentials to test.
- User Email - A Gmail email address
- User Password - The password of the Gmail account
CloudM Migrate will now perform a small connection test to verify that the details you have entered are correct. If this fails you may have entered something incorrectly. If you are failing to resolve the issue please contact CloudM Migrate Support.
Destination Platform - Google Workspace
Select Google Workspace as your destination platform.
Select where you would like your data to be migrated. If you have purchased Google Workspace for Business or Google Vault you may want to migrate data directly into Google Vault.
To enable Google Vault for your domain, please see the following article: http://support.google.com/vault/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2584132
Enter information for your Google Workspace admin account.
CloudM Migrate will perform a connection test against your Google Workspace domain to verify that everything has been entered correctly.
If your Google Workspace system is brand new or for any reason the users being migrated have not been created in Google Workspace, CloudM Migrate can create your users for you. Simply go to advanced settings, to the user settings section and enable Create Users.
Select which users to migrate
It's now time to add which users you'd like to migrate.
Unfortunately when migrating mail from Consumer Gmail you will not be able to use the Get Users button from the actions menu. You can manually import users via a CSV file using the Import Users option or simply add them individually via the plus icon.
Selecting a star next to any specific user or users will prioritize their migration. When a migration starts, threads will be assigned to any starred user so that their migration can start immediately.
At this point you can choose what to migrate for each user, when migrating from Consumer Gmail you can migrate only mail .
Enter your user's full email address within the Export Name field. If you have already created your Google Workspace users then you will just need to enter their username.
Select how much mail to migrate
CloudM Migrate lets you decide how much mail you'd like to migrate to your shiny new system.
