Apple Mail to Office 365 migration challenges and solution, here is the best way to do it. Read it to know more.
Apple Mail and Office 365
Apple Mail stores its emails in a file called EMLX. Many people are under the assumption that MBOX file is used. You can archive emails in MBOX file but Apple Mail doesn’t use it by default. Regardless, bot EMLX or MBOX are incompatible with Office 365 or previous versions of Outlook client.
Outlook for Mac 2011 has been a very popular email client among Mac users. Office 365 is an updated, subscription based, version of Outlook and other office programs like Word and Excel. It gets updates regularly. If you are moving to this new Office 365 Outlook from Apple Mail, you have a difficult task to go through first.
If all your emails are on the servers of your email account, there is not much problem. You can add that account with Office 365 Outlook and get all your emails then. However, for users with local data stored on Apple Mail, you need a way to get them into new Outlook client, and both MBOX and EMLX files are not useable.
Apple Mail to Office 365 Migration
And this data conversion can be problematic even if you have some experience with email migration. It is very difficult to get all items from Apple Mail to Office 365 without a professional software aid. The third-party tools that are available on the web, they all work in different ways. Most of them require MBOX files, which means you need to go through an additional step of archiving all mailbox folders to MBOX.
This can create a lot of unnecessary manual steps for a user and the whole process can become a burden.

One of its most compelling features is skipping the need for MBOX files and directly targeting the Apple Mail default database, which his called Profile or Identity. This is the folder where everything is stored by Apple Mail, so you do not need to archive emails to MBOX.

After choosing the source of Apple Mail database, you click “Convert” and wait for the tool to finish converting everything into PST. PST is a file compatible with Office 365 Outlook even in Mac.
