import folders into Exchange

Dear Experts,

I have had Barracuda recover an old mailbox from a server that doesn't even exist anymore, so they just gave me the mails in folders.
There are 3 folders, Inbox, Deleted Items, and Sent Items.
I can see that there are .eml files, which I can import into Outlook via various utilities.
My problem is, Inbox and Deleted Items have extensive folder layers, which I would like to preserve, and have not been able to figure out how to get them into Exchange/Outlook account.
Please advise.

So the restored mailbox is just a collection of emails? If this is the case then you will lose the structure for sure. The best way would have been to either restore the mailbox back to a temporary account (if using single item recovery or block mode) or by mounting a recovery database and exporting the mailbox to the same temporary account. These are really the only ways to preserve a folder structure.

Dear Radweld,

Thank you for your reply.
What I don't understand is, Thunderbird can import .eml files and folders that hold them.
Why can I do the same for Outlook?

If you have the PST make a copy and simply use Import\Export option available in Outlook and Import the PST it should come as it is

Dear Rancy, thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, there is no PST file.  Just folders with .eml files in them.
I used ImportExportTool Plug-in in Thunderbird, which did a pretty decent job, but then I couldn't import that into Outlook.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

The user decided to access it by going through .eml files one by one, so I don't need to import them into Exchange anymore.
