  1. Note: Steps to migrate the Standard folders which are initialized with different language

    If Standard folders (such as Inbox, Calendar, Contact etc.,) on your source Exchange server mailboxes are initialized with different language. Follow the below details to migrate these folders to the respective system folders on target (destination) server.

    For Instance: Your source Inbox folder is named 'Boîte de réception', which is in French language. If you migrate this folder directly to the destination server then by default it will not get mapped to the 'Inbox' folder on target server. In order to map this to the respective folder, change the regional settings on target server to that of your source mailbox folder language (in this case, it is French).
