Importing older Outlook .pst files to Outlook in Office 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a backed up .pst file from Outlook 2007 - I was wondering if I upgrade to Office 365, can I import the older .pst file to the new Outlook? I'm looking to see if I can create a separate mail folder so that I can keep my current mail separate from any of the older mail.

    Thanks

    Hi Franks,
    To Import PST file into office 365 you need to configure Office 365 account in MS Outlook and also have to check compatibility. 
    You may read this reference that I found on google - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/use-network-upload-to-import-pst-files
    If you don’t want to go with technical method then you can go with any third party tool also. 

    Note- If your PST file is corrupted then you should repair it by using third party tool. Find this link to read about a tool that repairs the pst file and saves that PST file to Office 365 directly- https://www.stellarinfo.com/advanced-outlook-repair.php
