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.
