Does importing a PST using the cmdlet override the allready present emails in the mailbox?

What do you mean "override"? Do you mean does an imported email replace an existing email? If so then the answer is yes unless you select the option during the import to not import duplicates. –  joeqwerty Nov 11 '12 at 21:46
    
That and if it would just ignore what was on the mailbox already. But i guess that answers both, you mind putting it has an answer? –  GriffinHeart Nov 11 '12 at 21:48

No, importing mail from a PST does not overwrite what already exists in the mailbox as long as they aren't duplicates. If there are duplicates, the mail being imported will overwrite what exists in the mailbox unless you specify otherwise.
