Evolution file size while improting from .PST file


I am new to Linux. Still trying to learn.

I am trying to import Outlook.pst in Evolution. After copying nearly half, it failed. I can see the last mail copied. I tried it twice but failed. My Outlook.pst file size is 2 GB.

1. Is there any limit in importing .PST file in Evolution? If not, then how to resolve this issue?

2. Can I Archive mails in Evolution and put in Archive mails? I need the old mails from time to time. Currently my Archive.pst file size is 1.8 GB.

Many thanks in advance for kind help. I am struggling very hard without success.
