Is a Log file created when importing a PST file into Outlook 2010?

Hello all,

I will be importing 17 PST files into installs of Outlook 2010 in a few weeks and cannot find anything about the logging of the process.  It would be nice if there was a log file that would tell me if any items failed to import.  Anyone know if there is a way to turn on logging for importing?

Thanks,
-John

you need to include  -IncludeReport  to generate log file

The logging doesn't occur on the client side (outlook)

No, in outlook there is no logging.
But, your asking this in the exchange group too, and there you have an option

Requirements: exchange 2010 sp1 or newer

Import the pst file wit new-mailboximportrequest powershell cmdlet
Generate a log file:
[PS] C:\>Get-MailboxImportRequest | Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -IncludeReport | fl >report.txt

Open in new window
