Silicon Savant :

Hi there happy to help.

Silicon Savant :

OK,

Silicon Savant :

Outlook for Mac 2011 includes .pst import.

Silicon Savant :

I assume you knew this.

Silicon Savant :

From your question it sounds as if Only the sent PST is giving you trouble?

Silicon Savant :

If so its possible the PST file itself is the problem. Recreate the sent folder pst and then retry, this usually resolves this.

Silicon Savant :

Let me know,

Exported .pst from Windows, imported .pst to Mac Outlook - file shows as importing, file name appears in left-hand pane in Outlook, but when clicked to open, no messages show - file appears to be empty!

Silicon Savant :

Did you recreate the PST?

Silicon Savant :

If you did this and it is still not working i will opt out and defer to a Mac expert. Your question will relist.

JACUSTOMER-jv54tcrn- :

Don't understand "recreate the PST" - if there's a step I have missed, I don't know what it is

No, sent items folder continues to show no content - all other content appears when recreated .pst file is impoted to Mac.

Silicon Savant :

Does any expert have an answer for me, or do I close down this question and look elsewhere?

If there's no one able to anser this question after over four days, I'll close down the dialogue and look elsewhere for an answer - which case, I expect no charge to be made or a refund of any charge already made. Closing down if no further response by one hour from this message time.

Closed down - disappointing
