    2:Unable to sent mail from owa internally

  2. I wanted to say thank you and great job on this guide. I did want to add a note for teams doing migrations. Smaller batches will complete faster as there are less syncing transactions to and from the local array and the remote array. My suggestion is queue small batches 2-4 mailboxes at a time. I tried moving 22 mailboxes (5.6GB) in my first batch and it took 6.5 hours. I did 3 mailboxes (5.4GB) in 3 hours.
