Is there currently a feature to import an entire Outlook .pst into a database? The 'File Pickup' option only processes text e-mail from the selected folder, and I like that, but I would like to be able to process an entire .pst. Should I post this as a 'Feature Request' or does this feature alreadty exist?

Hi, Only Outlook itself can open PST files.. So its not possible for Email2DB to process the raw file.. You must use the existing Email2DB Outlook add-in and process each folder in turn.. We may look into the option of processing ALL folders for a future update.. Thanks Steve

Hi,

Sorry, I know this is a REALLY old post but searching for "PST" and "Outlook PST File" didn't give me a definitive answer.  Can the current release of Email2DB process and import messages inside of an Outlook .PST file?

I have quite a few large .PST files that I would like Email2DB to ingest and process.  If it can't process them in their original .PST format, is there a workable process (even if partly manual) to get emails out of .PST files (actually, .MSG files within folders within .PST files) and into Email2DB?

I did see some information on the http://www.email2db.com/whatsnew.aspx page referring to Outlook MSG files but nothing specific to Outlook PST files.

Kind Regards,
Jack

Hi Jack,

We have developed a new stand alone PST (or OST) message importer. This reads messages from any PST or OST file and exports them to Email2DB for processing.

We are currently testing this and it will be released as part of the next Email2DB V3 service pack.

Many Thanks
Stephen

For getting a solution for the Outlook PST file migration into some other file format or email client you can take help of some technique that may help you out from this problem. I had found a blog through which you can know how transfer the data from PST to other format easily hope that will solve your conversion issues. You read that blog from this link: https://www.softaken.com/blog/import-pst-file-in-existing-outlook-outlook-data-file
