  • move whole inbox from opened archive to new Inbox

    is there a way to move opened from archive Inbox with subfolders to the freshly installed Outlook's INBOX?
    Or the only option - move folder by folder?

    Thanks.

    Right click inbox, copy
    Select target folder
    Paste

      Thanks for the tip
      Usually, I transfered folder by folder in important cases...

      Now Inbox is in Inbox. Is there a way to move all subfolder to the root Inbox in one shot?

        If you had pasted into the root of the mailbox I think (havent checked) it would have gone into the main inbox.

        Also look at scripting

            I know from old time Import was not reliable. So, in important cases I moved opened archive's folder one by one.

              Must be a unique issue to your site then as i've never had an issue importing a PST file into a mailbox.

                for the case of the main inbox in the archive folder select the top message then CTRL+A copy and paste to new inbox....

                  Dont think that picks up subfolders, though

                    i thought his main issue was just the inbox folder as a mail side of things as for the sub folders im pretty sure you can drag-drop them into the new inbox folder....

                      Not according to the very first post in the thread:
                      is there a way to move opened from archive Inbox with subfolders to the freshly installed Outlook's INBOX?
                      Or the only option - move folder by folder?
