Create New Exchange Profile in Outlook 2011 for OSX and Import Mail from Previous Profile

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.

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.

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 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.
