It depends on the capacity of your network, but it typically takes several hours for each terabyte (TB) of data to be uploaded to the Azure storage area for your organization. After the PST files are copied to the Azure storage area, a PST file is imported to an Office 365 mailbox at a rate of at least 24 GB per day. If this rate doesn’t meet your needs, you might consider other methods for migrating email data to Office 365. For more information, see Ways to migrate multiple email accounts to Office 365.
EAC > Permission > Admin Roles > Organization Management > Assigned roles > Mailbox Import Export role
You have to be assigned the Mailbox Import Export role in Exchange Online to import PST files to Office 365 mailboxes. By default, this role isn’t assigned to any role group in Exchange Online. You can add the Mailbox Import Export role to the Organization Management role group. Or you can create a new role group, assign the Mailbox Import Export role, and then add yourself as a member. For more information, see the “Add a role to a role group” or the “Create a role group” sections in Manage role groups.
You have to be assigned the Mail Recipients role in Exchange Online. By default, this role is assigned to the Organization Management and Recipient Management roles groups.
