In Outlook, I clicked on the File menu then Export then chose the .olm option
Yes it says it does. It's 809 MB
Same problem as before: it says "Outlook has completed importing your data". Then when I click OK and go into Outlook, none of my emails are there (except a few that arrived this afternoon) and my calendar is empty.
Are you able to help?
It turns into an Outlook email, with the OLM file as an attachment.
It turns into another Outlook email, with the OLM file as an attachment again.
No I don't have another computer. When I go to the File menu there's no option "Identity"
I have managed to find the data (it was stored under My Computer) but now I don't know how to move the calendar data from the archive back into Exchange so I can see it on all my devices and so my PA can see it...
1 what version of outlook was it ?
2. what happened to the original data. Just exporting it creates an export file but it should not screw up the original data
The latest version of Outlook 2011 for Mac (v 14.3.2)
I accidentally checked the box to delete the original data at the time of export
sorry I am still reading the stuff you did before.
at exactly what point are you at now? have you got it back in outlook but need it in exchange or you still need to get it in outlook
Thanks. I'm almost there now. I've moved my emails and calendar items into Outlook (they were hidden away, under "My Computer"). The emails are all sorted (I've uploaded them into Exchange).
As for the calendar items, I've tried uploading these back into Exchange using this procedure http://www.officeformachelp.com/outlook/faqs/#faq31
It's mostly worked, except any calendar items that weren't created by me (i.e. meeting invitations sent by someone else) are only in archive and not in Exchange.
If you could help with this last bit, that would be fantastic, Thanks
which procedure did you use on that page ?
the move calendar items to another calendar ? If not I would try that one or I would try doing it that way and select a couple of the missing items and transfer them alone. Or if you created a new calendar on outlook to move these items to you may need to change the settings on it to allow other people to post to it again.
