Evolution 3.20.4 no longer supports Outlook PST files for import?

I am switching laptops and am in the process going from Fedora 22 to Fedora 24. I'm having the following issue with Evolution:

On F22, Evolution version is 3.10.4 and supports importing MS Outlook PST files in the Evolution Import Assistant On F24, Evolution version is 3.20.4 and does not support importing MS Outlook PST files in the Evolution Import Assistant (only Outlook Express DBX files are supported).

Any idea why this functionality appears to have been dropped? Any idea how I can get my old PST files imported into the new Evolution?

Try installing the evolution-pst package from the Fedora 24 repository. That RPM package provides the Evolution plug-in that facilitates PST imports. It's not installed by default in Fedora 24.
