I am to transfer all my emails from University Account that operates with MS Office 365 Outlook (Syracuse Univ., NY). I have been suggested Microsoft 365 Personal. As I have Office Home version, I would go with Microsoft 365 Basic. I have a question: Does purchase of 365 Basic that has Outlook have File-->Export, then .pst (PST file) generation capability?

When Yes, I seek to transfer University emails to a created Hotmail Account - Am I am thinking right? Is there any other means also? I would prefer to go as suggested to me. Thank you. -Deepak

    Hi @Boray Sudhindra Deepaksubramanyan

    Welcome to our forum!

    Please kindly understand that the Outlook tag here we mainly focus on general issues about Outlook desktop client. For questions with Hotmail accounts, it's suggested that you could post your case in dedicated forum for Hotmail for more professional advice.

    Yes, Microsoft 365 Basic’s Outlook does include the capability to import and export emails using the .pst file format.

    As far as I know, it is feasible to use the import/export .pst feature when moving Outlook items from one email account to another. More information, see: Import email, contacts, and calendar from an Outlook .pst file.
