I installed Windows 10 on my new Dell laptop.  While exploring Windows 10, I found Windows 10 Mail App as free default email application, which comes bundled with Windows 10 itself. I found it new to be explored. Then, me and my friend started working over it.

While researching, we found that we can easily configure our various email accounts in Windows 10 Mail app easily. So, we decided to migrate my Outlook data in Windows 10 Mail App. But the issue that my friend noticed is that Windows 10 Mail application does not allow Outlook data to be directly imported in the Windows 10 Mail App.

Then, after exploring a bit more we figured out a way. First we need to upload Outlook PST into  Outlook.com. After that, we will configure Outlook.com account in Windows Web Mail application in it.  Then, we started searching for the solution to import PST to Outlook.com mailbox.

We started exploring on the internet and we divided our research in two panel. After searching, we got BitRecover PST Converter Wizard that gives a direct option to move all data from desktop Outlook to Outlook.com online account.  I read completely about the software and the best thing I found in this software was that it provides a free demo to test the application before spending on it..

Then we downloaded a free demo version of the tool and tried it out. We also shared the steps in the next segment to help you easily understand the process of migrating PST to Outlook.com.
