Shifting emails from Outlook 2011 to Apple Mail? How do you do that? If you found yourself struggling to answer that, this post will take you home.
Outlook 2011 to Apple Mail migration is not an uncommon thing in the computer world. Many people are constantly moving from one to another. If you are also looking to transfer the emails from Outlook 2011 to Apple Mail, here’s something that will help you.
Most people drag their folders from Outlook 2011 and drop them to the Mac desktop. This converts the files into Mbox format. However, it is not that simple.
If you have already tried this, you’d know the pitfalls in such a method. It never results in a complete and effective conversion of files into Mbox format. You are bound to lose the attachments, images, properties, and many more things. But the worst of all, this method is tedious. It will take you hours to drag each folder to the desktop, and still not achieve any worthwhile results.
Secondly, it doesn’t automatically maintain your folder hierarchy. Since, you drag each folder separately, the overall structure of your database in Outlook 2011 is changed.
And lastly, this method doesn’t help if you have contacts and calendar data to migrate. It only is useful for emails.
Therefore, if you have contacts and calendar to convert, you don’t have time to invest, and you don’t want to lose any data including the structure of your folders – this drag and drop method is certainly not for you.
