To support the charity with migrating all user- and shared- mailboxes from their POP3 email setup to Exchange Online, so that users have easy access to their mailboxes and calendars from anywhere.


Grey Matter has delivered many Exchange Online migrations, so were a natural choice for Show Racism the Red Card. 

Our services team, Cloud Know How, worked with Show Racism the Red Card’s IT Admin to gather information the number of and type of mailboxes as well as access details. From there, the Office 365 domain, users and shared mailboxes were set up. This included setting up access permissions so only the relevant people have access to the data.

Microsoft Teams was implemented along with SharePoint to enhance internal collaboration and help the in-office team easily communicate with the assessors out in the field.

Finally, our team migrated 30 mailboxes to Exchange Online. Show Racism the Red Card is now fully equipped to effectively manage their Office 365 tenant.


The fully integrated solution, Exchange Online, enables file management, emails and collaboration. Show Racism the Red Card has benefited from quicker communications, reduced spam and the knowledge that their emails, calendars and data are backed up securely.

Grey Matter were excellent throughout the migration of our emails and the setting up of the Cloud Exchange. A number of discussions took place prior to setting the objectives and there was clear communication throughout the process and the project was completed within the agreed timeframe.
