I just started using Gmail and I would like to import a large chunk of my mail into Gmail
my current email is in a Outlook 2007 PST file

I looked around and found a couple solutions but they are dated from 2004 and I was wondering if there wasn't something better to use to import PST files into Gmail

Hello BTMExpert,

You cannot import a PST into Gmail.  You need to first open the PST in Outlook 2003 or 2007.  Save the contacts list as CSV file. Then you can import the CSV file into Gmail.

Hope this helps!

I have done once such a thing with approx. 8.000 e-mails. I simply forwarded all mails to gmail. But I am using TheBat! as my mail client, dunno how to do it in Outlook, but it might be starting point.

hmmm...maybe an idea:
create a rule to send a copy of all received mail to your gmail account. Then when finished creating rule, select checkbox to apply this rule to all existing mails.

You can create a Gmail IMAP account in Outlook 2007

Then copy the emails from Outlook  to the IMAP folders.  It is as if you copying emails to the server.
