Export PST from mail store client 8

Hi guys,

I got a old exchange server2008, where we got mail store client 8 installed. And got all our old emails archieved.

We moved to office365 2 years before, suddenly one of the user wanted to access emails older than 3 years. I can see the emails are in mail store client. But how do I export it as pst file ??

I installed office365(2016) version in exchange server. Then went to mail store and to that particular user archieve. If I do right click, it gives me option to export as PST to a outlook profile. It look like exporting, but after few seconds it gives me error
“Unable to load MAPI”

Could anyone help me with this ?

Thank you

Use the outlook.

Login into his account.
then go File ->Open & Export ->Import/export
Select : Import from another program or file
Select Outlook Data File (.pst)
Search the file (using the Browse... button)
And use the option you want (replace/allow duplicated or do not import duplicated)
That's all form the Outlook

The other option is to use the O365 PST import
So go to the portal.office.com/ Setup / Data Migration / Upload Pst Files and follow the instructions
(or go directly to) https://protection.office.com/#/import
