Greetings all...

I have a client who has over a decade worth of e-mail and dozens of subfolders in his Comcast e-mail account. He wants to convert to our hosted Exchange solution.

I have enabled IMAP, but the subfolders don't populate in Outlook. Is it possible to access them and then back it up as a PST in advance of migration to Exchange?

Thanks to all :)

The account is set up as IMAP in Outlook? Right click on the inbox folder in Outlook and choose IMAP folders... then click the Query button. Is there a folder icon next to the folder names? If not select them and click Subscribe.
