Sync imported pst between outlook 2013 and office 365

Hi,

I have just done office 365 migration from sbs2003 manually by exporting pst files and import pst files into outlook 2013.

I have imported pst files into outlook 2013 and confirmed sync has started. I want whole pst file to be automatically syncing with office 365. At the moment, it only syncs when I open a folder otherwise it does not sync with office 365.

There are many sub-folders under inbox, and I want them to be all updated automatically. Is there a way to do this without going into each sub folder to be synced?

That's not the norm.

If you do a manual export/import it should sync the entire mailbox. Not just the folder you are selected on.

After you exported to PST, did you create a brand NEW profile just for Office 365? If not, you need to. Then try the import again. Did the import bring in all the folders at once?
