Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid – Import Outlook PST into Evolution

Moving email from Outlook (2003) to Evolution turned out to be easy-peasy (and not the nightmare that I had assumed it might be).

  • In Evolution click File and then Import to open the Evolution Import Assistant.
  • Click Forward and then click Import a single file.
  • Browse to the location of your Outlook .pst file and then click Forward.

  • Select the items that you want to import and then click Forward through the rest of the wizard.

I only had email to import and everything went smoothly with the exception of some emails having the wrong date or no date at all. I can’t really complain as the affected emails were very old and from a bunch of different ISPs (before I even got my first Hotmail account).

Well done Evolution!
