How to import Outlook mail to IMAP
Posted on 2015-01-17
The question title may not be descriptive enough ... I have Exchange users. I want to move their email to a non-Exchange IMAP server. How do I do this? I have some ideas, but I'd like some advice before I experiment.
In the past, I've been able to export Exchange served mail in Outlook using File > Import and Export > export to a file > Personal Folder file (.pst). Then I can import them into Outlook, but it imports them to a different mail folder hierarchy. It does not merge/replace the user's own mail folder.
I could rename/remove the users current C:\Users\mark\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\ pst and copy the desired one to that location using the same name.
Or, I could go to Tools > Account Settings > Data Files and change the account's datafile.
Or maybe someone has a better suggestion?
