Selectively Import PST Files Into Outlook

I’ve written plenty about exporting mailboxes from Exchange. But what if you need to perform a selective import into Outlook? This is helpful for importing mail in date ranges, using an import to search for terms (common with litigation holds) and importing contacts and calendars.

To get started, click Open from the File ribbon.

At the Import Outlook Data File screen, choose the mailbox to import into and then click on the Filter button. Using the filtering options, you can choose to import based on date ranges, using search terms, selecting specific folders or a combination of all of these.
