Default convert mails in pst file to msg files


Hi,

I would like to use imap for mails and thus would like to get all my mails from the pst file into msg format to upload back into my user folder in the server as pop3, which I have been using downloads all mails. The main aim is to lessen the burden on the machine when the pst file becomes too big and also to ease the process of backup. Any ideas on how to go about this? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

There are several ways to go about this.

The first is to create another PST file (an Outlook Data File) and call it something like Archive-2013, then move all your emails from 2013 into that archive. Then, repeat for each year of data you have. This is my favorite way to work, because I only "clean up" once a year.

The second way is to take advantage of the Auto Archive facility in Outlook and let it do the work. It basically does the same thing, the only caveat being that all data gets "shoved into" the same archive.pst file (meaning you could end up with an enormous archive file). To get started search for "archive" in the Outlook help area.

The third way might not directly help you; but you mentioned that you wanted to save msg files to disk - there are lots of tools to help you with this (including (ahem) my own tool for saving emails in msg format) but what confuses me is how you plan on "uploading back into my user folder in the server as pop3. Do you mean you simply want access to the emails after getting them out of IMAP? If so, then one of the two archive methods above should suffice.
