Hello, Everyone. On today’s blog I will answer the frequently asked question: How can I import a .pst file into my Zimbra Desktop?
The answer is with the new Zimbra Migration Tool, included in Zimbra Collaboration 8.7 and above.
It doesn’t even need an installation, just extract and execute!
Identifying the .pst file to Import into Zimbra Desktop
To identify the .pst file to import into Zimbra Desktop, go to Control Panel > Mail > click Properties > click Data Files > and you will see the Location.
Then select the second option called Export to a file.

Finally! We are ready to rock and to import our .pst file to our Zimbra Desktop. Remember, you will need the new tool called ZCS Migration Wizard for Exchange/PST:
Extract the file and execute Zimbra Migration — no installation needed! Choose the third option, Zimbra Desktop Migration
As usual, the Zimbra team did an excellent job, and you can select really granular options like Folders, import only items from a specific date, or even better, run incremental migrations, perfect for long migrations from old providers to Zimbra.

The last step, if you want to move the items from your local Zimbra Desktop to your Zimbra Collaboration account, is as easy as dragging and dropping the items from you Local folders to your account folders.
We hope you like the new Zimbra Migration Tool. Thank you to Navdeep for the heads up.
