Import Mail to MS Outlook
In order to import your email export file into Outlook, you must first have it saved to your computer. Second, you should have a copy of Outlook installed on your computer.
Go to File > Options > Advanced > Export to start the Import and Export Wizard, selecting Import from another program or file and clicking Next to begin.
In the Import a File screen, select the correct file type that matches your export file and select Next; in the next screen, Browse for the file on your computer, paying attention to the options:
- Replace duplicates with items imported
- Allow duplicates to be created
- Do not import duplicate items
These options are for managing the import of data that might include the same emails or a similar selection of them. If your email data is complete new then select the default option, Allow duplicates to be created.
Continue by clicking Next and then select the folder in your export that you wish to import the data from. Use the Include subfolders checkbox to display everything within the displayed folder and then decide on whether you want to Import items into the current folder or Import items into the same folder (as the one selected in your exported data). With your decision made, click Finish and the data will be imported.
