How to import Microsoft Outlook PST data into MailEnable


This article explains how to import contents of an Outlook PST file into a MailEnable server.


Microsoft Outlook can be used to import a PST file, and upload the email messages to a MailEnable server. To do this you would have an IMAP account configured in Outlook connected to the mailbox you wish to import the emails to. Use the Outlook Import and Export Wizard to import the PST file to the desired location in the account. Doing this will upload all the emails to the mail server. This may take a while, since each email is uploaded in order and it does not upload contacts, appointments or tasks.

Another option is to extract the data from the Outlook PST file using the "PST TO MailEnable" utility which can be downloaded using one of the links below. The advantage of this utility is that you can also migrate contacts and appointments. The utility has to run on a machine with Microsoft Outlook installed and also requires .Net 4 to be installed. MailEnable does not have to be installed, as it will extract the data to a path which can then be copied to the server (though if you have Outlook on the MailEnable server then it can extract directly to a mailbox). The version of the utility depends on the bitness of your Outlook version, not your operating system. So if you have 32bit Outlook installed, install the 32bit version, otherwise if it is the 64bit version of Outlook, install the 64bit version.
