PST or Personal Storage Table is a file used to store email messages, folders, email attachments, to-dos, and calendar. If you have one of this files you can use a software to move all this content to your Microsoft Office 365 account.

This is a review for PST to Office 365 Migration Tool by mailsDaddy.

Features

These are some of the most interesting features:

  • GUI based tool to import PST to Office 365 platform without installation of Outlook.
  • Upload E-mails, Calendars, Contacts, Tasks & Attachments to Office 365.
  • Two export options: Export to Primary Mailbox & Export to Archive Mailbox.

  • Supports PST files created on Microsoft Outlook 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007 and 2003 etc.

Bulk export

This is an interesting feature but it is not present in the personal license, it consists in to create a CSV file with the credentials and the file with the PST that you want to import, you will see the Bulk export function the top bar of the interface, for more information you can visit the official website:

Impersonate Export

This feature allows you to import multiples PST with few clicks, but it does not come with the personal license. The process is to create CSV file similar to the Bulk export, but the file only has to contain the PST path and the email address, like the Bulk export you will found this function in the top bar and it will ask for the password of your Office 365 account later, if you are interested to know how it works you can visit the official website:

Conclusion

The tool is very easy to use, I like email previewer, it doesn't have options is mostly action buttons, but this tool does the work that is the most important part, you can get all the content from a PST file directly to your Microsoft Office 365 account. The time to move the content to Office 365 will depend on some factors like the number of messages and files that the PST has and the internet speed. The price of the software is $99 and it is only for Windows.

My rating of this software is 8 out of 10.
