I want to export an MS Outlook .pst file to Apple Mail. How can I do this?
Do it via an IMAP server, which you can install on the Mac. I used
dovecot, created an account on it, added that account to Outlook and just moved it all over. Then in Mail, I created the same account, and copied everything over.
I prefer this method because it completely preserves all the properties of each message, including attachments. Exporting and importing through another method (including Thunderbird) doesn't preserve everything properly.
You can use Outlook2Mail. It can export mails, contacts and calendar entries.
But there are a few caveats:
- Only U.S./English versions of Windows and Outlook are supported at this time. Little Machines does not guarantee the successful conversion of non-English characters, languages other than English and date formats outside of the United States.
- You need a computer which is still running Outlook to export. You can't just copy the PST to your Mac and convert it.
