gromox-pffimport [-npt -u user@company] input.pst


gromox-pffimport reads files in the Personal Folder File (PFF) and the Offline Folder File (OFF) format and writes their data into a Gromox mail store. The PFF format is used in several file types:

  • PAB (Personal Address Book)

  • PST (Personal Storage Table)

  • OST (Offline Storage Table)

By default, pffimport creates a new folder “Import of <xyz.pst> on <date>” within IPM_SUBTREE (“Top of Information Store”) and places all PFF objects into that new subfolder.



Dry run, do not contact server.

Output tree analysis of the PFF file.

-u user@company

Target mail store which to import mails to.

All remaining non-options arguments specify PFF files to be read.
