Migration Options for Hosted Exchange Server 2007

Microsoft support for Exchange Server 2007 ends on April 11, 2017. Microsoft support for SharePoint Server 2007 ends on October 20, 2017. Therefore, Rackspace will not be able to provide adequate Fanatical Support and system maintenance beyond October 2017. Because of this, our Hosted Exchange Server 2007 and SharePoint Server 2007 products will be discontinued on October 20, 2017. 

What Will Change?

  • Your email service must move to Office 365 or Hosted Exchange 2016 because the Hosted Exchange 2007 and SharePoint 2007 environments will be decommissioned.
  • Following the migrations, your invoice will reflect the new services.

 What Happens Next?

In the coming months, affected customers will receive updates with more details and guidance about planning and scheduling your email migration.

You may contact Rackspace Cloud Office Support to schedule your migration sooner—in fact, we encourage it! Our sales, support, and migration specialists will assist you through the process until all of your email accounts are working smoothly on the new platform. If you need help deciding or have questions about the options, please contact our specialists at 1-844-675-1047.
