I'm creating a new Exchange Profile in Outlook 2011 for OSX. I then want to import mail from the previous Exchange profile. On Windows, it's just a matter of loading the PST file. What is the procedure on OSX?

The previous profile is another Exchange account on a different server.

You can import PST from your Outlook 2011. First export and transfer the PST from your other machine to your OSX system and then import it.

Refer:

Or you can directly merge that PST into mailbox by using import command from your server in Exchange. Refer: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff459261(v=exchg.141).aspx

You need to start a new profile. You can opt to keep the old one (as I always do just in case)
Exchange will download everything from the server.

Hi,
Please refer below mentioned link:
http://www.emaildoctor.org/blog/attach-pst-file-to-outlook-2011-mac/

In this link you will find that PST import process is mentioned. But at the time of selecting PST you have select OLM file from your computer. Just a little change you have to do in the import process.

I should mention that this is a disaster recovery on a new computer; that means I only have access to the OLPK files.

That means, PST import won't work, unless you use a tool to convert the OLPK files to a PST file.

I realize I formulated my question wrong. The correct procedure is to export selected entities to an OLM/PST file and then import it, but in this case, I'm stuck with OLPK files.

I have recovered data from OLK files, there are tools out there but you do have to pay for them.

Hi, Lisa. Yes, that's what I've done; I've converted the OLPK files to PST and then imported that, but really? Outlook can't import its own god damn files?;)

I know right? Same deal on pc. If you need OST files converted, you have a buy a repair tool. Makes no sense!

Well, the only solution is to convert the OLPK files using a third party tool.
