I am trying to copy over a PST file to a Sharepoint site and its not working.  Is there some other way maybe in Outlook that I can upload this file to Sharepoint?

There are a couple things to check on your Sharepoint Configureation.  The first thing to consider is file size.  I assume this isn't too large but make sure you haven't approached your storage limit for your site first.  You can do this by looking at your site quota & locks menu.  The other thing to check is that this is not a blocked file type.  You can check this from the Central Admin >Operations > Security Configuration > Blocked File Types list.  From there you can simply remove it from the list (If it is there) and you should be good to go.

Sorry for the second post.  I just realized what that file type was.  I tried to save an outlook file folder to a Sharepoint library not too long ago.  I selected the email to save & clicked file > save as > chose a network place (Team site & selected the appropriate library) & saved the file as html.  It worked like a charm.  I have not found a way to save an entire folder but you could always set up a folder in your library & save the emails into that folder directly.  Hope this helps.

if this is IIS7, along with configuring the max file upload limit in central admin, you need to make the following changes:

We host our Sharepoint server so I have no way of changing the settings etc. So the saving as HTML might work.
