  • Hi,

    What version of Microsoft Outlook are you using? What type of email account are you using, POP3 or IMAP?

    Can you see the folders/labels if you open the .pst files directly in your Outlook? To do this, go to File > Open & Export > Open Outlook Data File. Browse to the .pst file and click Open.
