Method to Transfer G Suite to Another Account / Domain

There are usually two methods to migrate email from G Suite to G Suite. In both cases, access to the Admin G Suite account is a must.

Method 1: Export G Suite account data using Mail Migration Services

Google provides a manual method for the G Suite users to migrate emails from one account to another. Though, this is a free method but, the transfer process is quite complicated because it requires setting-up of mail migration service, which includes:
1. Microsoft Exchange Server
2. Office 365 account
The method requires users to have technical skills and the system to have enough memory space, for the process to be accomplished. It becomes a burden when it is needed to migrate multiple user’s data to another account.

Note – Generally, we do not recommend this method to the users because it is not easy to fulfill all the pre-requisites. Still, if you like to more about this method then you can see this Google post: https://support.google.com/a/answer/6174025?hl=en
