When migrating to Office 365, you can choose to have the data imported into the user’s mailbox or archive. When exporting, you can export the mailbox and archive.
The MessageOps Office 365 Exchange Migration Tool connects to the local Exchange servers using MAPI, so there is no need to enable RPC over HTTP, which the native migration tools from Microsoft require.
The MessageOps Office 365 Exchange Migration Tool gives you the ability to import Public Folder data into Shared Mailboxes in Office 365. Before attempting to import Public Folders into Office 365, ensure you have an account which has access to the Public Folders.
To begin the migration, select the From On Premise Public Folder Tree option.
Next you must provide the following information.
When migrating from Exchange 2000 or 2003, the Exchange Server should be the server that the mailboxes reside on. When migrating from Exchange 2007 or 2010 the Exchange Server should be a Client Access Server.
The Username specified must have full access to the mailboxes being migrated. The domain is the Active Directory name name the account is in and the Password is the Active Directory Password.
Next enter your Administrator Credentials for Office 365. This account must have a mailbox.
The next screen allows you to select the Public Folders that will be migrated to the Office 365 mailboxes.
Click the Select Folder Button to bring up a list of Public Folders

You must then select which mailbox you want to copy the Public Folder data to. Click the Select Mailbox button and select the Mailbox. Then click the Add to Import Queue button to add the folder to the import queue. Repeat the procedure if you have more folders to import.
Click the Start Import button to begin the import.
