I have 2 different exchange accounts, for both I am utilizing Outlook 365. I am wanting to copy all my folders and their structure from one email address to the other (100+ folders). Is there an easy way to do this without re-building the entire structure?
Bonus: Is it also possible to move the messages from one exchange account to the other so I can migrate all my messages into one account?

If you feel comfortable running some code, this script is probably the best solution for you: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/office/PowerShell-Merge-mailbox-e769c529
You can use it to copy/move items between mailboxes, preserving the folder structure or merging some folders if you prefer.

I run an organization with about 8-10 employees. I am super organized and they are not. I have a TON of folder and sub-folders in my Outlook 365 account and they are wanting to mimic or copy my structure but it is a ton of folders and it is constantly changing. They want to have that same structure. Is there a way for my folder structure to be copied to their individual Outlook accounts BUT NOT THE EMAILS INSIDE MY FOLDERS? I just want the folder structure to copy and if possible...to maintain and refresh as I change it on my end. Is that something that can be done? @Sarah Thomay

Hi Adam, Just started using outlook 365 - and I have done the PST export of about 120 folders in someone's inbox to a PST on the desktop ....so after the import will any new messages show up in their respective folders?
Below you say: " From there you can copy over whatever folders you need to your inbox " .....So won't export grab all the existing emails in the old employees inbox that are there now?
Just wondering .......

In Outlook, Open File -> Import/Export -> select Export to a file -> Outlook PST -> select the source data file(PST or OST) -> check "include sub folders" -> click on filter -> then Advanced -> under Field select "Date and Time fields" -> Received , under condition select "on or after" -> on value filed enter tomorrows Date (in your local date format eg 05/12/2022), Click on "add to list" then ok, -> click on Next, select Browse and choose the target PST and select finish
