Specify Matching Options

Use this page to specify options for matching source Personal Folders (.pst) files to target online Exchange mailboxes. In the subsequent steps of the wizard, data will be imported from each .pst file to the mailbox matched to the file.

Table 74: User interface elements

Element Description
Matching method Use this area to select a method for matching source .pst files to target online Exchange mailboxes. You can match .pst files to mailboxes either by file name or file owner.
Match items if target name

Use this area to select a condition for matching source .pst files to target online Exchange mailboxes:

  • Starts with source name. Matches a .pst file to a mailbox if the mailbox name starts with the file name or file owner’s name (depending on the option you selected in the Matching method area).
  • Equals source name exactly. Matches a .pst file to a mailbox if the mailbox name equals the file name or file owner’s name.
  • Contains source name. Matches a .pst file to a mailbox if the mailbox name contains the entire file name or file owner’s name.
Only include archive mailboxes

Causes the wizard to ignore primary mailboxes and match source Personal Folders (.pst) files to online archive mailboxes. If an archive mailbox is missing, you will be prompted to match the Personal Folders (.pst) file to the corresponding primary mailbox.

This option applies only to the Exchange versions that support archive mailboxes (for example, Exchange Server 2010).

Match Progress

Use this page to view the match operation progress. When the match operation completes, you can use this page to resolve errors encountered during the match operation, manually match a Personal Folder (.pst) file to a mailbox, or exclude specific Personal Folders (.pst) files from the data import operation.

Right-click a Personal Folders (.pst) file in the list, and then select an appropriate option:

Table 75: Available options

Option Description
Resolve Error Allows you to resolve the error encountered for the Personal Folders (.pst) file during the match operation. If you want to resolve all encountered errors one by one, click the Resolve All Errors button below the list of Personal Folders (.pst) files.
Find and Select Mailbox Allows you to manually match the Personal Folders (.pst) file to an online mailbox. You can use this option on the files for which the match operation has failed or for which you want to find and select a different mailbox.
Remove Removes the Personal Folders (.pst) file from the list. Use this option on the files you want to exclude from the data import operation.

Specify Import Criteria

Use this page to specify additional options for importing data from the source Personal Folders (.pst) files into the mailboxes to which the files were matched.

Table 76: User interface elements

Element Description

Import data into subfolder named after source file

Imports all data from the source Personal Folders (.pst) file into the subfolder named after the source file. If such subfolder does not exist in the target mailbox, it will be created. The folder structure of the source Personal Folders (.pst) file will be re-created in the target subfolder.

If you select this option, you can also select the Append current timestamp to subfolder name check box to add the date and time of the data import operation to the subfolder name.

Import data into this folder Allows you to type the path to the target mailbox folder into which you want to import data from the source Personal Folders (.pst) file. If such folder does not exist in the target mailbox, it will be created. The folder structure of the source Personal Folders (.pst) file will be re-created in the target folder.
Delete source file after successful import Permanently deletes the source Personal Folders (.pst) file from which data has been successfully imported into the target mailbox.
