All mails in "draft" after pst import

  • Re: pst file import

    Hi all, i’m wondering if there ever was a solution found related to the issue in the above link. I’m suffering from the exact same problem here. After importing the pst-file created by Exchange Server 2010, i find all my imported mail (done with kopano-migration-pst) in status “draft” within my inbox (including all subfolders). Any hint is much aprecciated.

    btw: All mails forwarded/imported by fetchmail are displayed correctly.

    Hello @tompf ,

    unfortunately you don’t post the version you are experiencing this with. The issue was fixed in which has been available since the 8.3.4 release.

  • Hello fbartels,
    thank you for your quick reply and pointing me into the right direction.
    I have used version 8.3.1~35-6.1 that was installed from the UCS package repository (UCS version 4.2.2). Can you please let me know where I can find the latest version of the migration tool (8.3.4)?

    Hi @tompf ,

    if you have a subscription then you can easily update by following the steps outlined in

    If you don’t have a subscription then you could still grab the community downloads from and only update the migration tool and python-kopano. But to not mess with you current system too much I would recommend to install the migration tool onto a separate system.

  • Hello Felix,
    after updating the migation tool to the latest version and rerunning the import, I’m still facing the same issue :-(
    Updating the python-kopano package messed up my installation (migration tool stops working afterwards with python errors). Guess I will wait until Kopano Core within the official UCS repository will be updated to a newer version and I will give it another try then.
    Anyway … thanks alot for your support!

    Hi @tompf ,

    did you try to import into the same store? You’d have to import it into a new store as far as I know, since else the migration tool will detect the mail as already imported.

  • Hello Felix,
    I’ve done the import on a new created store (also user was recreated before).
    The version of the migration tool I have used for this is (from the last nightly build)
    Best regards,
