How to save Outlook items in a newly created .PST file
How to save (export) Outlook items in a newly created *.PST file.
CodeTwo Customer Support may need a test item from Outlook to analyze your problem. Saving Outlook items in a common way (for example using drag & drop) may change some properties of the item in question, which may cause that CodeTwo Support will not be able to reproduce your problem and finding a solution could take more time. To save your Outlook items in a proper way you should save it in a newly created *.PST file. To do this, please follow the instructions bellow.
Before applying this solution please stop the migration process.
- Create a new Outlook Data File. To do this:
- Now you will see this file in your Outlook.
In your Outlook right click on created "C2TestPstFile" data file and select "New Folder"
- Write a name (e.g. C2TestEmails), select appropriate value for "Folder contains:" - if you want to send emails, please select "Mail and Post Items". Finally create folder.
- Copy items you want to send us to folder you created (C2TestEmails). To do this follow these steps:
