Importing a PST file into a user's mailbox / archive mailbox

In the scenerio where legacy archiving might have involved users simply storing thier emails in a PST file on thier local system -  when introducing in-place archiving you will ideally want to import these PST files directly into thier archiving inbox.

This can be performed with the New-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet:

New-MailboxImportRequest "Joe Bloggs" -FilePath \\server\archives\jbloggs.pst -IsArchive -TargetRootFolder /

This command will import all of emails / folders within the PST merging them into the existing folder hierarchy of the target mailbox.
