Import one or more PST files into an exisiting mailbox or a archive.
This script imports one or more PST files into a user mailbox or a user archive as batch.
PST file names can used as target folder names for import. PST files are renamed to support file name limitations by New-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet.
All files of a given folder will be imported into the user's mailbox.
