Export Emails from Mac Mail to Outlook Easily in Spite of the Challenges This Task Seemingly Bring Up!
Exporting email data can be overly complicated for both experienced users and otherwise. Mac Mail to Outlook data migration isn’t so excused either. It can result in incomplete output files even after putting up countless hours into the task.
Export Emails from Mac Mail to Outlook
The main reason behind the complexity you face is that these clients work differently, in two different operating systems, and share no common data file that can be used. So, migrating data is no more like moving or copying/pasting the files.
Outlook uses PST primarily and Mac Mail uses MBOX and EMLX in different context. If you have folders in Mac Mail, you cannot move the EMLX into Outlook. The Outlook has no feature to import then or even read those files.
This brings us into the conversion of files themselves.
- One option is to manually convert each EMLX file associated with an individual email message into PST. This leaves out EMLXPART files that are for attachments, and also contacts and calendar.
- Another option is to directly convert the entire Apple Mail native Database into PST files, including every content inside of it, rather than handling each EMLX file separately.
But, sadly, almost all software tools that convert your data goes for the first method – EMLX to PST.
Not only is too cumbersome and leaves out attachments, contacts, and calendar, it is also more less accurate with the mails and their metadata. If you care about the details in your email messages, which obviously everyone does, you should keep generic EMLX converters at bay. Images, links, email addresses, headers, Unicode content, MIME content, and other such elements of an email database can get lost through that approach.

Now it’s possible to finally convert Apple Mail database entire and directly to PST, by passing any need to handle EMLX files manually. This is done through “Mail Extractor Pro”. It has a simple option for ‘Auto-load’. It will get all your contents from the Mail ready up for conversion in no time.
Forget all other tiring and inaccurate methods; they are not needed anymore.
Additionally, “Mail Extractor Pro’ can do the same with your Thunderbird and Postbox. This is automatically get their databases instead of having you to manually fiddling with the files. It even supports MBOX files conversion to PST.
Eventually what you get is fully accurate and clean PST files, ready to be imported into Outlook Windows. Get your attachments, Unicode email addresses and text, MIME defined content, cloud-based links, folder hierarchy, and other information from the emails correctly converted with no loss to the tiny details they contain.
One more important feature that is easy to ignore but comes in handy is splitting large PST files. You can set the size limit for the output PST file. The tool automatically creates additional ones, in essence, splitting them into smaller files that are easier to import to Outlook.

You can convert ten items per folder within the “Mail” folder, but allows every other aspect of the app to be checked out freely. This will give you a much better idea of the ‘Auto-load’ function rather than reading about it.
