Office 365 - Importing PST Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, going round in circles over this issue.

    Firstly, I know of two ways to import our .PST files to our newly setup office 365 accounts (assume this uses exchange 2013??).  The first is using the tool PST Capture - This gives me the same (unresolved) issue posted in other topics - where it cannot see any mailboxes on the server to import too.

    The second is manually in powershell.  I have zero experience prior to spending all day yesterday researching online how to make the transfer .

     I have managed to get as far as connecting to our exchange server.  However I am unable to run the command I believe needed to do the import (new-mailboximportrequest).  I have added myself to the role of "Mailbox Import Export" but despite this I still cannot see it in the list of available commands.

    Can anybody help?

  • How about deleting this useless topic then?   People searching for solutions ought not have their time wasted by threads that start with "How do I do XYZ" and end with "No help here".  This topic is #5 when I Google for the question the OP asked.

  • As you know there are two possible ways to convert PST file data into Office 365 Mailbox, one is the manual process and another is the third-party software. You can also use any one of them but if you are searching the third-party solution then I recommend you the MailsDaddy PST to Office 365 Migration Tool for the instants solution. With this application, you can easily convert your multiple PST file data like emails, contacts, calendars, appointments, and attachments etc into O365 Exchange Online Mailbox.

  • There are many tools available in the online market, you can search through the internet or I would recommend that you should make a wise decision before choosing any method because there are two methods available on the internet, the first is manual and second is the third party. If you are not a technical expert, you may face some problems with the manual method because the manual method is a time-consuming and complicated process, it can also cause you to lose your important data. when I had faced the problem with a month ago, then I used Bitacube Import PST in the Office 365 tool. This tool provided me a fast and simple mechanism to convert the PST file to Office 365. You can see the free trial version of this tool here. :
