I have a user for whom I've enabled Exchange Online's Archive Mailbox feature.  Archiving has been working fine.  However, they're using a version of Outlook 2007 which is unable to display archive mailboxes.  I didn't realise that such versions existed prior to enabling archiving.  But now I do!

So the user's unable to view their archive from Outlook 2007.  Yes, they can see it in Outlook Web App, but they're not happy with that as a solution.  So I would like to move everything that's been archived back into their main mailbox.

The way I've been approaching it is to connect to the mailbox / archive mailbox using a fully patched copy of Outlook 2013, and then attempt to export the archive mailbox to a PST.  This mostly works, but it's been tending to fail part way through the process with a "Network Problems" type message, since it's an online connection rather than a locally cached one.

Is there a better way of doing this?  Something like a Import-ArchiveBackIntoMailbox Powershell command, maybe?

Use Outlook or OWA to move them directly, without exporting to pst. Sadly, in Exchange Online there is no way to export the mailbox to a local .pst automatically (PowerShell).

Another option is to use EWS to do this programatically, but I don't have any ready script for this.

Cheers Vasilcho - I was kinda hoping to avoid doing that because there are lots of subfolders and I'd have to move them individually.  But if the alternative is researching and writing a script, it might be the easiest option.  Thanks!
