I recently purchased a hosted exchange account through Microsoft.
I want to import the messages/contacts from my existing PST file into my online exchange account.
Is there an easy way to do this?

Since my PC has Windows XP on it, I cannot install Outlook 2013.  I have been using Outlook 2003.  

I just need to get the data onto my online account.

Thanks!

Outlook 2010 would work, can you install that and then move it over. You can get a 30 day trial of it as well.

What I'd do, set up your online exchange account, attach your PST and then manually copy the email over.

Unless you have access to the powershell on the exchange you have to do it this way.

You can use the import PST function of Outlook. Conect your Outlook to your online account and import the PST.

I ma trying to do this without Outlook.  I have Outlook 2003 (which does not work with hosted exchange).  I have saved the PST file and want to port it directly into my online exchange account.

Can this be done?

Did you try to connect your Outlook using IMAP? That should work with hosted Exchange even with Outlook 2003...
