Just switched to the new Outlook for Mac.  What happened to On My Computer Files folders?  I used to have all my old emails grouped by years in .pst files.

 

If I go to Preferences, and General, the "Hide On My Computer folders" is grayed out.

 

If I go to File, Import and Export are grayed out.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks!

@JayBrant I second that ... or add allow for import .pst, so we can keep emails outside our mailboxes

Also seconded, I utilize this feature a lot and do not want to lose my files when we're eventually forced to switch to "New Outlook".
