Export Apple Mail to Outlook for Mac
The tool we are talking about, “Mail Extractor Pro“, will help you export everything with sharp accuracy.
But before, let us know a little about the technical background of the process.
Apple Mail and Mac Outlook are both email clients for MacOS users. Both of them are great at offering productive ways to manage your emailing needs. Their advanced features with intuitive interface has made many home users and large corporations get better at handling large amount of emails and other data items.
But when it comes to users switching the email clients, with that comes the painful job of migrating data as well. Despite of both email clients very popular, there is no any official support to import/export data. Nor are there any files you can move directly because there’s no common data file among both.
Apple Mail uses EMLX and MBOX (in two separate ways) to store data, while Mac Outlook has its own OLM format for that purpose. You cannot pick either EMLX or MBOX from Mac Mail and move it to Outlook Mac because it cannot read or detect any format other than MBOX. This is where users are forced to find other ways to export Apple mail to Outlook for Mac, and majority of those solutions are incredibly painful and slow.

Coupled with that is the precise algorithms that “Mail Extractor Pro” processes the data with. You will find all your items and contents from “Mail” is converted to PST files while preserving the details and all the metadata. Some of the worth noting types of items that often are not converted correctly are folder hierarchy, images, attachments, headers, and Unicode text.
