Now, i have seen this question asked before however my situation is a little different.

I have a customer that has an Outlook PST file from his old webhost. The old webhost account is now closed so there is no moving it over imap.

Is there a way to import this PST file into his cPanel account emails? Even if there is a way to open the PST file locally in outlook and drag the emails into the cPanel imap server.

Regards
Norman

Hello,

You could setup the email account using IMAP with Outlook on the local workstation and try following the instructions to import it via:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/287070/how-to-manage-.pst-files-in-microsoft-outlook

There's also a third-party URL here you may find helpful:

Migrating Outlook PSTs -> Maildir via IMAP

Thank you.
I will give this a try, might be a few days as this particular customer is very slow at replying!

Thanks Michael!
