Newbie Office 365 / Hosted exchange / importing data issue
Posted on 2015-02-24
I setup office365 with godaddy. Created an email address and OWA seems like it works OK. I created the account in outlook 2013 on a new machine and it got the couple pieces of mail and a contact I made in OWA.
On an older machine (win 7 and outlook 2010), outlook was running with a POP mail account and the contacts / calendar were staying locally. I exported that info (mail folders, contacts, calendar) into a PST.
Then on that same older machine w/ outlook 2010, I created a new mail account linking to the office 365. It also got the couple pieces of mail and a contact.
I then imported that PST of old mail, contacts and calendar into the office365 / outlook 2010 / older machine. I was thinking that will push the data to office 365 and then OWA, other machines (like the new machine with outlook 2013) I set up will have all the contacts, calendar and old mail.
But outlook 2010 says this folder is up to date, but when I go into OWA, there's no contacts, no calendar and lots of mail is missing (things that I do see in the outlook 2010 machine)
How do I troubleshoot this? Is outlook 2010 the problem? If I try to do the import of the PST all over again, using the new machine / outlook 2013, will checking the box don't create dupes really be enough? or is there an easy way to wipe out all the data on the office365 server? there's just a couple test messages that I did before trying to do the import.
