Today we will use Microsoft Transporter Suite for migrating email from MDaemon to Exchange 2007.
Why? Obviously because we're going to get to moving calendars for this legacy product, but you only get to calendars if you're also doing email and we get asked about email, so we're documenting it here.
This is for on-premises Exchange migration to Exchange 2007 ONLY. You want to go into Office 365, the read our previous article How to Migrate Oracle Beehive Email into Office 365 because the method will be the same.
Why 2007? Believe it or not Exchange 2007 is still out there, and we still get questions on it. Might as well deal with reality.
We've also tested email migrations with imapsync (spoiler alert: imapsync is MUCH BETTER).

First, download and install it. But: WHERE should you download it and install it?
but then very helpfully reminds us in case that was what we were really after.
We're not in this case, so let's just accept the EULA and get this done.
Now we can actually execute the Transporter
My file looks something like this:
You'll see something like this and are ready to import.
Now migrate your email.
