Migrate your contents from Outlook 2011 to Apple Mail using “Olm Extractor Pro”, and get 100% conversion of all items, information, and meta-data from Outlook 2011.
Both Apple Mail and Outlook 2011 have a huge user base. They are perhaps the two biggest email clients that most Mac users use. Considering that, it may be a little disappointing and surprising, there is no easy way to move the data from one to another.
But anyone who has ever used this method knows how inaccurate, incomplete, and tedious it is. First of all, it doesn't apply to your contacts and calendar folder. Secondly, you have to drag and drop each email folder individually. Good luck if you have a huge database with countless number of folders. It doesn't seem feasible to move the contents effectively.
And not to mention, the Mbox files generated this way show a huge number of data irregularities. Which simply means that the emails that are stored in Outlook 2011 are not exactly similar to the converted Mbox file. You can find much of the information lost or modified.
I received an email yesterday asking for a better solution. That is the primary reason I am writing this post today. Quiet honestly, I've received such emails very frequently. And I kind of always put on hold writing this article. But luckily, today is the day.
The email says - “I have many work related emails in my home Mac stored in Apple Mail. But my office uses Outlook 2011. I want to move some of the emails from Apple Mail to Outlook 2011 in office computer. I certainly can't ask IT guys to do this for me. So I have to find a way myself. I'd appreciate a lot if you can suggest me some way. A colleague of mine suggested me to drag and drop the email folders that I want to move into the Mac desktop from Outlook 2011. but it didn't work. The Mbox files that I generated didn't contain the original images from Outlook 2011. And some of the attachments were also lost. Please help.”
First of all, I am not surprised at all at reading this message. This is very frequent that people tried to convert the Outlook 2011 data to Mbox files using drag and drop method. But very rarely does it work. I've seen much data loss, sometimes even the Outlook 2011 gets corrupted due to some reason. So I'd always suggest to stay away from it.
But the good news is that there is a much better, more professional, and effective way of doing about this. There is a tool called “Olm Extractor Pro” and it is a complete solution for all your Outlook for Mac conversion needs. Converting Outlook 2011 to Apple Mail is just one of its function. You can convert Outlook 2011 to other formats, such as Eml, Rge, Thunderbird, Entourage, and Postbox.
But I will restrict myself to the main topic of this article. “Olm Extractor Pro” is certainly the best way to move Outlook 2011 contents. The major factor contributing to the tool's premium quality is its ease of use and user-friendly nature. Second factor is its ability to convert the data thoroughly. You won't find any lost attachments, or broken images, or broken non-English characters, etc. Everything will remain exactly the same when you import the converted Mbox files to Apple Mail.
If you want to try the tool first without buying, you can do that Here:
