When you are migrating user data from Novell GroupWise into Microsoft Exchange, messages with OLE objects or links greater than 1 MB in size will not be migrated. Larger OLE objects (>1 MB) do not migrate at all and register an error in the Event Log.


The Microsoft Exchange Migration Wizard is currently unable to process OLE objects larger than 1 MB when they originate from Novell GroupWise.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Smaller OLE objects (<1 MB), when imported into Exchange, will act differently, depending on the client and the operating system you use to view them.
