    I managed to get ahold of an Outlook 2003 version. Seems the last batch of computers we purchased came with it, but we install all users with Office 2000.

    Anyway, the PST import works fine, so it's definitely incompatibilities with Outlook 2000.

    Im glad to hear you were able to get things working. I've filed bug 5383 to request the enhancement of support for Outlook 2000 in the ImportWizard.

    I'd also be interested in an importer for Outlook 2000. We have this deployed exclusively. When I tried to import a .PST (before I found out it wasn't supported) I received this messsage from the importer log:

    19-02-2006 23:57:29 [172]: Creating / starting worker thread
    19-02-2006 23:57:29 [172]: Dispatching work to worker thread

    19-02-2006 23:57:29 [756]: Worker thread exiting

    I'll put off my evaluation for the time being. If you ever decide to include support for OL2K PST's, that would be great. Zimbra looks very promising.

    If you have Outlook 2003 you can do the import on that machine.

    Okay, I used Microsoft's Office 2003 Trial version to do the import.

    This is a large .PST. About 1.5GB. The import works for a while, and about 1/2 through the import it complains about too many failures (4 errors/80 warnings). I ran this PST through SCANPST to repair any problems it could find and re-ran the importer with the same results.

    The 4 errors are "Unknown Application Exception"s, and the 80 warnings are "Too Large.Hence Skipping". (enlarging the max attachment size in the Admin Console didn't help).

    Any way of getting the importer to ignore these warnings/errors so the import can proceed to the end? If my max attachment size is set to 100,000 then what does it mean by "Too Large..."?
