Convert Pst File to Apple Mail - The Professional Way

Convert Pst file to Apple Mail in a professional manner using “Pst Extractor Pro”.

Converting Pst file to Apple Mail is a dreaded task that can really feel like a nightmare. I wish I had known that before I even attempted that myself.

It all started when I got a new Mac and ditched my Windows PC.

What I didn't realize then what a pain it could be to move everything from Windows to Mac. Eventually, I moved most of my files, except one thing – my emails that were stored in Outlook. I really felt crippled when it came to that; clueless, panicked, and frustrated.

You see...the emails that are stored inside Windows Outlook can be in two format- Ost and Pst. Ost is a file that is just a copy of the data inside online servers. Whatever changes are made online using a web client will also sync with the Ost file, and vice versa.

However, the issue was with the Pst file, which is an offline way for Outlook to store data. In other words, any kind of data inside Pst file is not on online servers.

So that's where the issue was. I couldn't sync the contents on Apple Mail through the online servers because most of my emails were offline in Pst file.

Convert Pst file to Apple Mail

That's when I found out about converting Pst file to Apple Mail, or more specifically, converting Pst file to Mbox format. Because just as Pst is the format for Outlook, Mbox is for Apple Mail.

With enough luck on my side, I found out about “Pst Extractor Pro” very soon. Which is really nothing but simply a tool that converts Pst files to Mbox files. But does so in a very controlled and professional manner.


Best Features

What I was worried about was my size of Pst file. It was almost 8 GB. I was really not expecting “Pst Extractor Pro” to deal with such a file the way it did. It converted everything to Mbox in just 50 minutes, which is faster than the rate 1Gb per 5 minutes.

Furthermore, if you are going to ask two most convincing reasons to choose “Pst Extractor Pro”, I would definitely choose its 1.) extremely user-friendly GUI, and 2.) the extensive and detailed conversion of all the items and the information inside them.


There is no comparison when it comes to user-friendliness. Everything was just so easy that it took me by surprise. Every feature, every instruction, and every step along was  easy and made complete sense. Even if you are new to this, I wouldn't doubt that you will find it very easy too.

And the way it converted every single unit of data was impressive.

Final Thoughts

I am happy to use Apple Mail and Mac computer. It has many benefits over Windows. The only thing I was concerned about was my email data, and that got resolved in ways that I hadn't imagined, and that was only because of “Pst Extractor Pro”.

Apple Mail is fun to use, and what's relieving for me is that I can see all my emails, attachments, nested messages, images inside emails, and other kinds of information and properties – exactly like it was in Windows Outlook. Before attempting any of this, I had expected to miss at least one of those elements in Apple Mail. I was clearly wrong.

You can give it a try here.:

Note that “Pst Extractor Pro” is a tool for every kind of Pst migration. That means it can convert Pst files to almost every other email file format used with Mac email clients, just like Mbox. You can convert Pst to Mbox, Thunderbird, Postbox, Entourage, Rge, and Eml format.
