We can ensure that all new Email is delivered to your Office 365 account and we can also copy all your existing email from SaintMail to Office 365.

If you would like to migrate to Office 365 from SaintMail please contact the IT Service Desk and request migration.

You are responsible for checking that all the Email has been successfully copied over. After a couple of months your old SaintMail account will be deactivated and your email deleted. We will not be able to recover any SaintMail Email items after deactivation.
