Hi,

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.

I don't agree with Dant7 on the outlook approach however it is your call.

if you prefer/want to do it from exchange side this will guide you step by step

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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
