Import Entourage MBOX into Outlook 2019 / Outlook 2016
Firstly, let us confide that it cannot force Outlook to accept data in MBOX format. But what it can do is give you the files that it can indeed accept and import. This format is called PST (Personal Storage Table) and is a proprietary file from Microsoft used since the very first days of Outlook Windows. The good thing about PST is that you can even use it with Mac variant of Outlook.
“Mail Extractor Pro” can take the Entourage MBOX files (or MBOX files from any source such as Google) and convert them to PST. Simple as that. You can then import PST in Outlook by going to File → Open and Export →Import/Export → Import from a program or file → Outlook Data file (.PST).
Additional info: Entourage does not store information in MBOX format by default. You need to drag the folders to Mac desktop to convert them into standard MBOX files. If you cannot see the folders in Entourage, go to View à Folder List.
It is easy to use and treats your information in files with care. Many methods or software for file conversion often lends PST files crammed with integrity errors. They miss elements such as attachments, graphics, headers, and so on. Only this tool from USL Software passes on the information from MBOX to PST with utmost precision.
