Outlook is the most used email client that helps in managing multiple email account from the same environment. It saves all his important data in PST file format. Before Office 365 it is the most trending email client but as the release of Office 365 Organizations have started using the Office 365 environment along with the old PST data. Now the question is how to migrate Old Outlook PST file to Office 365 user account?

Just go through the blog and perform the mentioned steps for performing the PST to Office 365 Migration.

Why the trend is changing and Organizations are migrating to Office 365

The best reason is anywhere access; it allows user to access the data anywhere from Office 365 with having availability of internet. Also it helps in reducing the overall maintains cost. There are lots of other reasons due to which users are performing the migration in Office 365 cloud. So if you have decided to perform the migration then I would strongly recommend to use a suitable PST to Office 365 Migration Tool.

Yes the manual way of performing the migration requires the use of Azure Tool that is a command line solution of performing the migration.

Although I am explaining the manual method you may use it if you comfortable.


Step 1: First to all you will need to Download Azure Tool.

Step 2: Share the PST file over network. That path will be used while uploading the PST on Office 365.

Step 4: Run the command in Azure Tool for performing the migration.

AzCopy.exe /source:\\SERVER\SHARE /dest:{your unique URL}/SERVER/SHARE /destkey:{your unique key} /S /V:C:\Logfile\importpst.log

Step 5: Create the Mapping File

The next step is creating the mapping file in CSV format with the details given below:
