Hi Experts

 IMAP folders exported to a .pst file are not visible or don’t show any content.

I understand the export/import process maintains the IMAP folder properties which aren’t compatible with a regular pst-archive which causes the folder contents not to be visible.
Is there a way of exporting an IMAP mailbox to a .pst file without bringing over the IMAP folder properties?
I've come across the following third party website https://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/fix-imported-imap-folders.htm which provides a script to alter the folder properties but was wondering if there was a process of exporting IMAP mailboxes to a .pst without bringing over the IMAP folder properties in the first place.

I know .pst are not the best option, but on this occasion it is necessary.

I look forward to hearing from you.
