If you are looking to convert Outlook 2011 to Mac Mail, and not sure what way to go about that, you will like to read this article.
Outlook 2011 and Mac Mail are both very efficient email clients for Mac. But they both work differently, support data in a different way, and have different file formats for storing emails and other data types. Olm is for Outlook 2011, and Mbox is for Mac Mail.
There are many file converters in the market that let you convert Olm files to Mac Mail, but most of them are either too hard to actually use, or are completely inefficient, resulting in lots of data incongruities.
“Olm Extractor Pro” is the tool that has all the qualities you need for an efficient email migration. The tool was built solely for making the process effortless for all kinds of users, from experts to beginners. And it has certainly done it so.
So, the following are the steps you need to take to effectively convert Outlook 2011 to Mac Mail.
You can download the free version of the tool here. Keep in mind that this demo version will only convert 10 items from Outlook 2011 per folder.
4 steps conversion
- Step 1 – After installing the tool, you can launch it from your list of applications in Mac. Click on “Add Olm” then load your Olm files wherever you stored them.
- Step 2 – Choose the folders you want to convert. The tool displays the content folders inside your selected Olm files.
- Step 3 – Choose “Apple Mail, Address book, Calendar (ical)” from the output format.
- Step 4 – Check the rest of the options available and click convert.
That is all! This is certainly the most simple and easy way to make such an email migration task effective.
What are the additional options?
You can choose to convert and save the read and unread emails in separate folders. Most tools even fail to preserve their read/unread status. This one lets you save them to separate folders.
Merged contacts – The tool will itself read your contacts folder and convert them to Vcf files without any manual intervention. However, you can choose to merge all the contacts into a single Vcf file from a single folder. Makes it much easy to store them as backup, instead of storing many individual files for each contact.
Merge Calendar events – Similar to the contacts, the tool will convert all the stored events and reminders in your Olm files to Ics file. Ics is a standard file format for Ical and other calendar applications in Mac. You can choose to merge them to a single Ics file per folder.
Other various output formats?
Other than converting Olm to Mbox or Outlook 2011 to Mac Mail, the tool also features few other forms of migration. You can convert Olm to Mbox, Eml, Entourage format, Thunderbird format, and postbox format.
