I am not sure if you have tried this already but, here is how to export the .olm from outlook 2011:

Once that is done then do then...

  1. open outlook 2011

  2. On the File menu, click Export.

  3. Click Outlook for Mac Data File.

  4. To export all items in Outlook, click Items of the following types, and then select all the check boxes.

  5. Click the right arrow to continue, and then follow the instructions. Just remember where you save this .olm file as you will need to know for when your in outlook 2016 during the import

 

    In the Import box, select Outlook for Mac archive file (.olm) > Continue.

    • In Outlook for Mac 2016, on the Tools tab, choose Import.
    • Locate the .olm file on your Mac, and then click Import.
    • Imported items appear on the navigation panes (Mail, Calendar, People, Tasks, Notes) under On My Computer. For example, contacts are in the navigation pane on the People tab, email messages are on the navigation pane on the Mail tab, calendar items are in the navigation pane on the Calendar tab, and so on.

    Then however your not done as you can import your outlook "identity" as well.....

    In Outlook 2016 for Mac, on the Tools tab, choose Import.

    In the Import box, select Outlook 2011 data on this computer > Continue.

    Choose the location of the identity for import. (The default location (/Users/[username]/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities) You will need to choose this path

    Click Continue.

      If you have done all this already and you still dont have the email folders, please let me know.

      One Happy CustomerNew York

      I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

      RPAustin, TX

      Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
