If your outlook365 account ... and then import the pst file into exchange...


recently helped move someone with 7 years of email to o365 on-line- he never threw away anything, even the full 7 years of junk mail). previously was pop so already in .pst files. (and when I say "helped" he watched me do it - didn't know how to even start anything like that himself.)

anyway [small blessing] it was already split up by year = 7 pst's
- 4 of them over 1 gig [blessing depreciated]

followed instructions to import the first (smallest) pst, not the most confidence inspiring process.

so decided instead [on his desktop] to:
- add the old .pst files (external pst in accounts & files)
- in the online create a new [year-named] top level folder
- create matching subfolders (Inbox, Sent...) and drag (moved) the contents over from the local/attached .psts

yeah slow, but less farting about than the .pst import
(actually seemed faster too, or at least it didn't just sit there seemingly doing nothing - you could scroll and watch the psts arriving at the destination in date order so could estimate time left)

-----------

so anyway rather than copy all, just add the other account / .psts to o365,
drag and drop only what you want (copy or move)
the detach the other account / .psts
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
