I have office pst files from a mail daemon server and need to import them into office 365.  I am using a Windows 7 laptop that has the pst files and a computer that is not on the domain.  the pst capture tool does not work because the laptop is not on a domain and the the central service is not on win 2k8.

The easiest way is to simply connect Outlook 2010 to the user's Office365 profile, then use Outlook to import the .PST.

Otherwise, you're looking at using remote PowerShell:

You are going to be stuck using Outlook to import it unless you use a third party tool. Below are Instructions for Outlook 2010 (2007 will work as well but slightly different steps).

1. Connect Outlook to the Office 365 Mailbox

2. In Outlook 2010, click the File tab.
 
3. Click Open and then click Open Outlook Data File.
 
4. Navigate to the .pst file to import and then click Ok.

5. Wait until you get all folders up to date. As the import will go into the local ost and must sync with the Office 365 mailbox.
