New free tool to import PSTs into O365 (Exchange Online)

Exchange Online allows you to move mailboxes from your on-premise Exchange implementation into Exchange Online (and visa-versa), but it doesn’t have a feature to import those PST files sitting on your user’s PCs into Exchange Online. Well, not until last week anyway, when Microsoft released a PST import tool which is designed to do just that.

Move your user’s PSTs into Exchange Online or Exchange on-premise with this new tool called “PST Capture”.

Check it out and download it here on the Exchange Server team’s blog

    Be careful, this tool requires Outlook 2010 x64.  Which is strange because Microsoft recommends using x86 versions of Office 2010.

    Important: Microsoft strongly recommends the use of 32-bit (x86) versions of Office 2010, Project 2010, and Visio 2010 applications as the default option for all platforms.

    Most users won't have Outlook 2010 x64 so you'll need to download this or purchase it in order for PST Capture to work.

    LMFAO – come on MS, why do we always rely on 3rd parties to bring us useful solutions to the issues you create?

    Not seeing all of the 365 mailboxes, although all permissions are identical between them… Sometimes it sees them, others it doesn't… Not very reliable, even with the updated version.

    This tool is seriously flawed. I would rely on that thing.

    This solution fing blows, don't bother.

    I can't get it to stop throwing RPC Server errors.  No documentation on how to fix it.
