One of the benefits of using desktop email clients over browser based clients is the flexibility in how one manages loads of emails, contacts, or anything else. These desktop based clients also adds the ability to use wide variety of data, that can contain specifics. For instance, emails can be sorted out according to many attributes, which is not so easily allowed in web clients Calendar entries and contacts can store multiple data fields, such as photos and Urls.
Conversely, web clients are limited.
Thus, this brings us to an unfortunate fact of email migration world. You lose this data richness when it is transferred from one desktop email client to another, such as Import data from Mac Mail to Outlook 2011 for Mac.
So, back to our question in the title, ‘how do I import from Apple mail to Outlook 2011 for Mac’? You certainly want to add “without leaving data elements behind” in this question. At most cases, it is observed that when one switches Apple mail to Outlook 2011, some of the specifics associated originally with Olm files are lost. They are not properly implemented into the new Outlook 2011 files.
Few examples of such data loss would be of attachments, images and other graphics within email text, email properties (to, cc, bcc, from, subject, etc.), time and date headers, and many other such elements.
Fear not! You have come to the right place that will reveal below an excellent tool to make this transition happen most accurately. You can convert your email and other contents from Apple mail (Mbox files) to Outlook 2011 (Olm files) with utmost precision. Any data irregularities are eliminated through an astute standard of programming at the core of the software.
Without further ado, let’s get to the features of the tool. The tool goes by the name of “Mail Extractor Max”. It is a graphical wizard based type tool that lets you convert files from apple mail to outlook using a simple, no more than two, steps method.
The three most notable qualities are – speed, interface, and precision in converted data.
-: Speed :-
At the basic core of the tool, some rigorous and eminent level of processing gives the tool a remarkable quality of speed. “Mail Extractor Max” lets you finish the mbox (Apple mail) to olm (Outlook) conversion very quickly, almost with a speed of 1GB per 15 minutes.
Simultaneous Processing – The tool’s unique functioning allows it to extract data rapidly from original Apple mail files, and simultaneously implement it to Outlook 2011 files, thus completely bypassing a major time-consuming step.
-: Interface :-
As specified above, it contains a graphical based wizard, that leads you towards the email conversion methodically. Every action on your part that you need to take (or optional at some cases) is very carefully planted at appropriate place and step in the process. Thereby, making its GUI interactive, very easy, and yet highly efficient.
The process eventually simplifies down to two actions on your part – loading Mbox files and choosing the folders for conversion.
The other functions adds much more flexible quality to the end result, such as, merging contacts to vcf and calendar entries to Ics, keeping read and unread emails separate, and so on. All these powerful features are easy to apply because they make intuitive sense during the process itself. Furthermore, the ‘tips and instructions’ are there as an easy-to-understand guide.
-: Precision :-
Last, but the most important, feature is the precision of the final converted Olm files. The data computing logic that does all the work – scanning files, looking for emails and other items, extraction of data, and finally putting it all into Olm files – is the most characteristic part of the tool that plays the highest part in the manifestation of successful migration.
This computing logic that deals with the data intensely is responsible for preserving the following items –
— email properties (cc, bcc, subject, from, etc)
— embedded images
— other embedded objects, such as, graphs, pie charts, word docs, table, excel sheets inside email body.
— Non-English content
With all these three qualities, “Mail Extractor Max” evidently makes itself the safest tool ever in the conversion of Apple mail to Outlook 2011 for Mac.
Furthermore, the tool is available as a lifetime free trial version, which means, there is no time limit for this trial edition. The only restriction places is the number of items you can convert from each apple mail folder, which is 10.
