Summer 2013 Migrations

Reconnecting Archives

This migration eliminates the need to archive your e-mail moving forward, however you must reconnect to your old archive folders (.pst files) in order to access previously archived messages:

  1. In Outlook, go to the File tab, then click Open.
  2. Click on Open Outlook Data File.
  3. Here you will need to browse to your existing .pst file, select it, and click OK. Note: It should be in Documents > My Documents > Outlook Files. If not, submit an LTS Help ticket.
  4. The archive folder you selected should appear in your folder list on the left-hand side of Outlook. By selecting it you should find all your archived items inside.
  5. Repeat this process if you happen to have multiple archive folders.
