Why would I want to move my email from my Personal / Archive folders to Office 365 email?
Email in Office 365 is in the cloud and can be accessed from any device that Office 365 runs on. Personal / Archive folders (pst files) can only be accessed from the desktop computer on which they reside.
Moving your email is likely to take some time. Please plan accordingly. If the folders are large, you may get a message to restart Outlook.
There are two methods to move your Personal / Archive folders (pst files) into Office 365 email:
OPTION 1: Move INDIVIDUAL folders (or emails)
Simply Drag and Drop individual folders (or emails) one at a time from your Personal / Archive folders (pst files) to your desktop Outlook Inbox OR you can right-click on a folder, select ‘Move Folder’, select the target folder, then click OK.
These new Outlook folders will then show in your Office 365 email:
- If moved to the Inbox, and there is no folder with the same name, it will create a new folder
- If moved to the Inbox, and there is a folder with the same name already, it will create a second folder named subfolder (2)
- If moved to a subfolder with the same name, it will create an additional subfolder under it with the same name
OPTION 2: Import the ENTIRE Personal / Archive folder (.pst file):
- Will import the entire Personal / Archive folder to Office 365
- Will merge the emails into a folder with the same name OR will create a new folder if no folder with the same name exists
