Yes it is, however the easiest way to do this, and quickest, is through Outlook.

Just open up the Users profile in Outlook. Select File, Open and Import and select the PST file.

Please let me know how you get on.

If you have an existing exchange server follow Akhater, if you have a simple PST use Dant7.  If the pst has other calendars (seperate calendars from the default one), you will have to import those sometimes separately.
Not sure but let me ask ..... how was the PST Exported and is this a PST Import from another environment or what is the background as if what i say you should add X500 to the Mailboxes in EMC to avoid further issues

If still have some queries please do let me know
