Uploading Outlook Content to SharePoint

Essentials Public Folders tab allows you to upload entire e-mails or public folders into a SharePoint Site, or individual items into a specific list or library.

Uploading E-Mail/Public Folders into SharePoint

This option is appropriate for users who wish to import an entire e-mail or public folder into its own list or library. This option also allows for the upload of multiple email and public folders to SharePoint while creating a dedicated list for each in SharePoint. One advantage of using this option is that the application will automatically create an appropriate list or library in SharePoint (e.g. Libraries for e-mails, Calendar Lists for Calendars, etc).

1.Start by identifying and selecting the e-mail or public folder in the Connections area that needs to be imported into SharePoint.

2.Copy/Paste, Drag-and-Drop, or Upload Using CSV  to your target SharePoint environment in the Navigation area. You can also use the options in the ribbon to initiate the Copy/Paste and Upload Using CSV functions. Please see Copy E-Mail/Public Folder Conent Using CSV for more information.

3.You will be prompted to choose the name of the new list (default is the e-mail folder name). Enter a new name or press okay to continue.

4.The remainder of the process is described in the Copy, Move, and Tag SharePoint Content section. Please refer to these sections for additional information.


NOTE: If you need to copy the permissions of the public folder from Outlook to SharePoint, you will need to check off the box next to "Copy Permissions" under the "Advanced Options" section of the Tagging/Copy Content Wizard. Please refer to the Outlook Permission Mapping section for additional information.


Uploading E-mail Items into SharePoint

This option is more appropriate for users looking to selectively upload e-mail or public folder items into a specific SharePoint list or library.


NOTE: Emails uploaded into a library will be stored as .msg files.  E-mails uploaded into a list, will generate an item and the e-mail will be stored as attachments to this item.  

1.In the Connections area, double-click on the e-mail or public folder containing the items to be imported. The content of the folder will be displayed in the Content area.


NOTE: This process may take some time depending on the amount of content in the folder.

2.Select the items that need to be copied.


NOTE: This content area contains filtering and column sorting capabilities to help identify the required content.

3.The remainder of the process is described in the Copy, Move, and Tag SharePoint Content section. Please refer to these sections for additional information.

Copy E-Mail/Public Folder Content Using CSV

This option allows the user to create a CSV file that will copy e-mail and public folders objects located within Outlook. A typical scenario for this is to copy many files but with unique metadata changes for each file. This can be done by creating and modifying the CSV file and then using the Upload Copy Content Using CSV option.


NOTE: This option is only available with licenses that include Migrator, File Manager or Public Folders modules.

1.Follow the instructions in the Uploading Outlook content to SharePoint section. Prior to clicking Finish, Don't forget to select the "Create CSV File for Uploading, Tagging or Copying files" option on the final summary page of the wizard. Click Finish.
