Upgrade from Apple mail to Outlook 2011 for Mac – Ultimate Solution you always wanted to had
Apple mail to Outlook 2011 conversion is the process of moving your emails, contacts, tasks, calendar entries and all other items from Apple mail database to Mac Outlook database. The conversion is highly convoluted because of the differences of both email clients and the files they use for storing data. Apple mail is little flexible in storing data in files, however, Outlook 2011 only uses OLM files for the same purpose. Furthermore, OLM files are not incompatible with Apple mail.
That brings us to the core issue – how to convert Apple mail files (emails and all other data) to OLM files.
Before we present a solution, we would like to answer one of the most regularly asked questions by our readers.
Can I manually upgrade from Apple Mail to Outlook 2011 for Mac?
Yes, one can perform manual conversion of data from Apple mail to Outlook 2011. However, the truth must be told, and later, you would decide on your own.
There are certain types of data in your files that may get corrupted during such manual conversion. In fact, it is highly likely that one or more types of information/data would be lost or damaged. The most common types of data that is commonly observed to be corrupted during Apple mail migration to Mac Outlook are-
- Imbedded images
- Folder hierarchy
- Unicode content
- SMTP headers (metadata, such as, time and date stamp, to, Cc, Bcc, to, from, and subject)
How can I save my time during Apple mail to Outlook 2011 conversion?
Generally, users just want to convert the data to Mac Outlook without wasting much time. Learning about the technical minute details and about the process is not in anybody’s mind. And let’s admit it, we all are looking to grow our business, focus on our main job, or just simplify our lives, and not frustrate ourselves by tedious technical jobs – like the one under discussion here.
So, to come back to the questions – a user cannot personally do anything to reduce the time of conversion of data from Apple Mail to Outlook 2011 conversion. It all depends on the proficiency of the tool you are using. The most you can do is reduce your computer’s load by killing all the background process and by cleaning your computer of viruses and broken registries. However, such a task could only make unnoticeable difference in the time used by the tool, if the conversion machine used in it is sluggish and based on outdated technology.
