Share Mac Mail Emails with Windows Outlook
Ever needed to share a large chunk of your data (emails, contacts, calendar data, attachments, and more) with another? Well, it can be a problem if you use Mac Mail and the others use Windows Outlook.
It doesn’t happen often that you need to share many emails with someone. Emails by nature are private. But often in a business environment, there comes a situation where two more people need access to the same emails or the attachments or clients’ contact details or any other item.
Moreover, both the Mac Mail and Windows Outlook may be using by you. Maybe you have Mac Mail on your Work computer and Outlook on your home PC. Or you are switching to Windows PC altogether. Or that you need some of your data on Windows PC.
Whatever the case, sharing Mac Mail data to Windows Outlook can be a cause of trouble.
So, How to Share Mac Mail Emails with Windows Outlook
The first and the most obvious answer seems to be forwarding those emails to an email account you or the user uses in Windows Outlook. And sure, if it’s just a few emails, that can be done.
But in case of many emails and other items, forwarding them one by one can be impractical.
Sharing a file doesn’t work as both clients have different files that they use. Outlook uses PST and OST, Mac Mail uses MBOX and EMLX. You cannot copy, move, import/export them as you can do when there’s a commonly shared data file across programs.
There are other ways to make it happen but they can go on for very long. Such as, first archive data to MBOX file, import it in Eudora (another Mac email client), export from Eudora to Outlook Express, and then finally to Windows Outlook. This is a very lengthy way to work around the incompatibility of data files. And you are never sure if by the end of the journey, you are going to all the required data accurately shared or migrated.
So, what are other effective ways you can go about doing this?
The best answer to this is by converting Mac Mail directly to PST files. However, it’s not possible straight from the Mac Mail as there’s no such option. You can only archive your emails to MBOX files.
This is where “Mail Extractor Pro” makes it a surprisingly easy task, given how complicated the above methods actually are.
