Apple Mail Database into Outlook (for Mac and Windows), Here is the tool you need.
Usually, if you are trying to move email data from one client to another, you have to either export the data to a common file that can also work in the destination client that you are moving to. Such as, using MBOX file to move between Apple Mail and Thunderbird. But if there is no common file between source and destination clients, you are in trouble.
How to add Apple Mail database into Outlook?
You either need to go through time consuming manual methods or find a third-party file converter that can bypass the lack of a standard file.
One example of such email migration is when you want to add Apple Mail Database into Outlook. Because Apple Mail uses MBOX and Outlook uses OLM (and PST for Windows Outlook), you cannot adopt the simple method of simply moving the files across to Outlook. Moreover, Outlook Mac lacks the feature of directly letting you import from other installed clients on your computer, such as Apple Mail.
This leaves you with two choices: Either convert the Apple Mail file MBOX to OLM using a third-party converter or migrate data across the clients using an intermediary email client and a dummy email account that can act as a link between Outlook and Mac Mail.
The recommended solution in this article is based on neither of those methods.
Without going into details, it is enough to note that converting MBOX to OLM is a valid way to relocate your data, but doesn’t always work and can be tedious.
The second method of manually exporting data using another email client that can act as an intermediary is also inefficient. But more than that, it is seldom accurate and often result in partial conversion where a lot of elements are missing from the output data. It is also daunting for beginners to go through all those steps such as installing another email client and using a dummy email account.
The tool that you need
Therefore, what we are recommending here is a tool called “Mail Extractor Pro” that will help you to add Apple Mail Database into Outlook (in both Mac and Windows version) using PST format, without all the usual hassles. It does not work in the usual way, which we have clearly established above as inferior and sloppy methods.
Auto Load database for conversion
The way “Mail Extractor Pro” works is by directly loading the Profile (or sometimes called “Identity”) database of Apple Mail, freeing of the hassle of handling MBOX or EMLX or any other kinds of files manually. Just click on ‘Auto-load’ and it will automatically detect and select the main/default database of Apple Mail on your computer.
But you may ask, what if you have other databases to relocate into Outlook Mac. Do not worry. The tool lets you select any database from any location as well. It works similarly to auto-load mechanics, which is to say, you do not have to handle the files manually or export the data to MBOX files. In this option, all you have to do is browse to where the exported or backed up Apple Mail folder is and select it.
That’s all. Once the default or any backup Apple Mail database that you want to move to Outlook Mac is selected, you are ready for conversion. Click “Start” to begin converting data. The output format you get is PST.
Do not be confused by PST file. It may be originally and natively the file for Windows Outlook, but you may like to hear the fact that PST also works in Mac Outlook. You can use it to import data in both Mac and Windows version of Outlook.
Other than selecting the Apple Mail database, there are other inputs as well, depending on different scenarios. But they are mostly optional. Such as: the single-click button the right side of the dashboard to ignore all the empty folders. There’s also a simple way to restrict the output PST files from getting too big. It’s recommended to not leave this field ‘zero,’ as that will create a single PST file. If your Apple Mail database is huge, it’s a good idea to enter a certain size number (in GB) in this field, such as 5 GB. If your computer doesn’t have massive specs and is either a normal PC, you may want to keep PST file size small. This improves the performance of both Outlook and of your computer.
Finally, even though the article focuses on adding Apple Mail Database into Outlook Mac/Windows, it’s important to mention that “Mail Extractor Pro” works equally well and with same efficiency for converting Thunderbird, Postbox, and standard MBOX files to PST as well.
