Outlook 2016 PST Importing into Exchange (Office 365).


I am migrating a user to Office 365. I have not created the mailbox yet so please bare with me this question is in preperation so I know where I stand.

Anyway I was testing the PST import import in Outlook Mac 2016 and it looks like the following picture. So what you are seeing is Outlook with no account set up yet. (That happens next).

Anyway as you can see the "Apple Mail Export PST" in the GUI. Now if I have an exchange account - will the PST and its underling structure be loaded into the exchange mailbox.

Or will I be able to then drag and drop items from the "Apple Mail Export PST" into the exchange mailbox - (Inbox and sent Items) exchange will realise this and put the data there?

So in short how to get the data from the PST file into the exchange mailbox.

Thanks for that. Is there any OSX bases method. Looks like I will need a PC / Virtual machine to do this?
