    We moved a client off of on prem exchange to Office 365 this past weekend. When I arrived out there Friday, I exported their mailbox (Full Mailbox, all folders included) to a PST file. Once I got their O365 software installed, I connected their mailboxes and transferred their mail. Each user only had, at most, 100MB of mail so we’re not dealing with a ton of mail here.

    Anyway, I noticed today that their contacts appear to be non-existent. Like they didn’t get exported when I did the initial export of the full mailbox.

    Any ideas?

    Why not just import the PST using Office 365? Or even easier would have been to migrate their mailboxes as it does all that for you.

    Because it was 4 people with less than 6MB of mail each. It actually imported for everyone else, just not this one user. Now I’m looking for a free OST to PST converter…

    Damn, doesn’t that sound exactly like it was Copy ‘N Pasted from the website promo page.

    Having just done a migration from Exchange 2010 to O365 on the weekend, I can say it was dead simple to export the email to a PST and then import the PST to O365. Contacts, email address hints, calendar, reminders etc were all there when finished. Why dick around with a third party tool when in this case Microsoft actually works as advertised.

    [EDIT] Just read your Flag Tom and I agree. You can borrow mine if needed. [ATTACH=JSON]{“alt”:”Click image for larger version Name:tban-key.gif Views:t3 Size:t19.7 KB ID:t517954″,”data-align”:”none”,”data-attachmentid”:”517954″,”data-size”:”small”}[/ATTACH]
