I am converting a friend's e-mail from POP3 to IMAP in Outlook 2010.
Her machine is a brand new Sony VAIO i5 quad core running Windows 7 Professional.
It has a Microsoft Performance Rating of 5.9 and it a really nice piece of kit.
However exporting a PST of her existing mail is taking about 4 hours for around 1.2GB.
Importing can take 15 minutes for a 20M of importable PST e-mail.
Outlook often goes into Not Responding mode.
It all works but the time it takes is unbearable and am having problems getting hold of the machine long enough to complete the task.
Is this common? And am I doing anything wrong?
I have further questions:
1. I have to export all the folders individually as when I exported the lot the import eventually said it wasn't going to import because special folders can't be imported with IMAP.
2. How do I copy over the calendars - are these one of the special files.
3. If I have a local and domain login for the user on this portable can I have a universal copy of Outlook or should I use a local and domain installation and just let the IMAP do the synchronisation.
