Importing PST files from IMAP/POP accounts into Exchange. Message header only. Body missing.
Posted on 2013-02-05
OK, Hopefully I've posted this in the correct place this time.
My client recently moved from a hosted mail serivce to Exchange.
From my client's old IMAP account I've gathered all the PST files and tried to import it into Exchange.
If I add any of the PST (Add data file) in outlook, most of the emails will show header only and not the message body. Some emails show up fine. The ones that are fine I can copy them to the Exchange mailbox. If I try to copy the ones without message body they'll disappear from the exchange mailbox.
I've also tried a direct import from the PST to the exchange mailbox but the same thing happens. The bodyless emails disappear before my eyes.
This is the same case with about 4-5 PST files. I've tried to run a Scanpst on them. That didn't help.
I cannot set up the IMAP account as the service has been cancelled.
The PST file size ranges from a few 100MB to 3GB.
Any way to retrieve the emails with missing bodies?
