When migrating to Office 365, you may need to return the history of old mailboxes in the news using the PST archives.
There are several ways to do this:
- Import from the Outlook client directly (I highly recommend this solution).
- IMAP copies from the Office 365 migration interface.
- Send PSTs on Microsoft servers for import.
In this article, we will see the third solution.
- Have administrator access to the Office 365 interface
- Have the rights of Import / ExportImport / Export
- Install Azure Explorer
- Have PST
The first step is to fill in a correspondence file to link the archive to the email account.
The file must be in csv format with a comma (,) separator.
Here is the header that must have your file:
|Parameter||Value / Explication|
Description: Defined in which office module the import should be done.
Description: path to the archive when uploading
Description: Name of the pst file sent
|Mailbox||Value: [email protected]
Description: The main email address of the account where the archive is to be sent.
|IsArchive||Value: TRUE / FALSE
Description: Determines whether the file should be imported into the archive mailbox.
|TargetRootFolder||Value: empty or / and / MyPst
Description: file encoding
Here is an example of an import file:
Workload,FilePath,Name,Mailbox,IsArchive,TargetRootFolder,SPFileContainer,SPManifestContainer,SPSiteUrl Exchange,,archive-rdr.pst,[email protected],FALSE,/,,, Exchange,,archive-jbo.pst,[email protected],FALSE,/,,,
Now that the file is ready we will go to upload files.
Upload PST archives
For unknown reasons, the transfer with Azure Storage Explorer is difficult at times. If this happens to you, you can use AZCopy.
AzCopy.exe /Source:"C:\pst" /Dest:"URI AZURE" /Y /S
Import of PST
1. Return to the Security and Compliance interface where you obtained the URI for Azure Storage Explorer
12. All you have to do is monitor the import process.
