How to convert EMLX files to PST? Usually, a converter requires you to input the EMLX file, often one by one, and then it processes all the data into a PST file. But this common approach is fallible and is not practical in many scenarios.
Instead, here’s a modern solution that you can rely upon and is also very easy to implement.

How to convert EMLX files to PST for Mac &Win Outlook?
First, download “Mail Extractor Pro” and install it.
When you first launch it, the user-centric and friendly approach to beginners will immediately jump out of it. The interface is natural to interact with and all the features feel intuitive.
Load (Options for Converting EMLX files)
And here’s the major distinctive feature – it does not require you to load or input the EMLX files, either in bulk or one by one. You can directly input the database folder and it will pick up all the emails and attachments and other items automatically.
- You can choose to autoload the “Mail” folder from your Mac computer. This is the primary database where Apple Mail stores all the data.
- You can also choose to input any other backup databases or exported mailboxes that might be stored in other places, such as another drive or on another computer
- If you have MBOX files, you can also choose them as input to convert to PST, for instance, when you have already archived the Mac Mail emails into MBOX.
For next step, you can choose to ignore empty folders. Just click the box that says ‘ignore all empty folders.’ This is optional, but if you are sure all the empty folders are unnecessary, you can choose to skip them to get a cleaner, more organised converted database.
Another optional feature is skipping any specific folders by unchecking the respective check-boxes. When you input the database, “Mail Extractor Pro” shows you the preview of all the folders in the original hierarchy. Even more, it keeps the original hierarchy intact. So, when you open PST files in Outlook after the conversion, you will find everything in the same order. Many generic type of Mail to PST converters can alter the arrangement of folders, making it very difficult to later organise your data.
Finally, the last option you can set according to your needs is the size-limit for PST files. It is recommended to split PST into smaller multiple PST files, to make it easier to import them into Outlook. A single large PST file is also more prone to corruption. Users with older version of Outlook and low PC configuration will find this option very helpful, as it allows them to keep the output files smaller and thus, not affect Outlook’s performance by importing one large PST file.
Finally, click the ‘Convert’ button, choose where you want to save the PST file, and let the tool handle the rest. Once the conversion is finished, you will get a confirmation window with a link to the destination folder (the location of converted PST files).
You are then free to import it into either Windows or Mac Outlook or whichever other client is compatible with PST format.
