About the Setup Procedure

The procedure to install the Sun Java System Connector for Microsoft Outlook on your desktop may follow any of several different paths, depending on your current system setup, the volume of data (if any) that you want to convert from the old Outlook format to the new format, and other factors.

Folder Hierarchies for Migrated Data

The Sun server supports only one top-level folder within Outlook for each type of data— Contacts, Notes, Calendar, Tasks or Journal. If the source folder hierarchy contains more than one top-level folder for any one data type (as shown inFigure 2–1 below), only the primary (first-listed) folder appears in the top level after the migration. The other folders of the same data type are migrated to a new second-level folder named My [DataType], also shown in Figure 2–1.

If a Large PST File Conversion Is Interrupted

If the conversion of a large file is interrupted before its completion (by a power failure, for example), the Setup Wizard offers a Recovery feature that lets you complete a conversion in progress rather than having to start over from scratch. If this should happen to you, please see If a Personal Folder (.pst) File Conversion Is Interrupted.
