Hi everyone this is Prem, I have worked as Microsoft 365 Support Ambassador. In this blog I will share How to Migrate Emails using Outlook.
To Migrate emails from outlook application you need to have Outlook application installed on your computer.
Once the outlook is installed on the computer you have to configure the account to which you want to migrate the emails too.
