Import PST to Office 365

How can I import my PST files to Office 365 format without using paid software?

Because all the tools are paid and their free demo version is very limited access. So, can anyone suggest to me some solution to this problem?

To import PST files to Office 365 without paid software, you can try these manual methods:

1. Outlook Import Export Wizard
  • Open Outlook and go to the File tab.
  • Select Open & Export, and then choose Import/Export.
  • In the Import and Export Wizard, select "Import from another program or file" and click Next.
  • Choose "Outlook Data File (.pst)" and click Next.
  • Click on the "Browse" button to locate the PST file on your computer.
  • Select the PST file you want to import and choose the desired options.
  • Select the destination where you want to import the PST file, such as your Office 365 mailbox.
  • Click Finish to initiate the import process.
2. Network Upload:
  • Save your PST files to a shared network location.
  • Use the Office 365 Import service to create an import job and choose the network upload option.
  • Follow the instructions to upload the PST files from the network location to your Office 365 mailbox.
The methods mentioned above are free to use. However, if you prefer a paid solution, you can choose the drive shipping method. Please note that using drive shipping to import PST files to Microsoft 365 mailboxes offers a cost of $2 USD per GB of data.

3. Drive Shipping:
  • Save your PST files to an external hard drive or USB device.
  • Create an import job using the Office 365 Import service and select the drive shipping option.
  • Ship the external storage device to Microsoft, and they will import the data into your Office 365 mailbox.
