I am trying to migrate from POP3 to Exchange.  I've exported the entire personal folders and then set up the Exchange account and then imported the pst.  When I import the pst file it does not bring in all of the inbox. I case 1 the emails were that imported were from 3 months or so older. nothing current came. On another pc, only the inbox subfolders imported and nothing in the inbox folder itself.  Any ideas.

I would say u can export everyting into a PST and then open this PST from outlook and just copy and past them back to inbox.

yes that's exactly it, that's the only way to do it, to open both profiles and copy.

let me know if you need any more help.

Thank you.

I didn't export to pst. I actually dragged the emails out since the export would not work.
thanks for the help
