Office 365 Outlook 2011 Public Folders Issue

Hi all,

We have a client that had Gmail and we moved them to office365, everyone runs macs running outlook 2011.

They have a public folders and when trying to drag emails that came across before they were setup on office 365 they receive the following message:

Content-type: multipart/alternative;

This message is in MIME format. Since your mail reader does not understand
this format, some or all of this message may not be legible.

Content-type: text/plain;
Content-transfer-encoding: quoted-printable

This message is followed by a plain text email signature.

Does anyone know how to get round this?

did you import the mail from gmail into o365?

synced mail to outlook 2013 from gmail accounts, then exported mail as .pst.
added office 365 account to outlook and imported mail.

This was all on windows PC's.

I had a thought earlier though, does the new version of outlook for mac (2013) include MIME formatting. If so i should think that upgrading the clients to outlook 2013 would resolve the issue.

Upgraded users to Outlook 2016 which seemed to resolve the issue.
