I have some old archived Outlook for Windows files that I want to move to Apple Mail in order to look into some older files. I don't have any access to Windows systems, I run Apple Mail on my Mac Book Pro. I tried looking online for a solution but the methods explained the result in nothing. Seeking for help on this forum and hoping to find the best possible answer.



To import PST files into Apple Mail, you have to convert the files. There are a plethora of converter programs on the Net, many are listed in this Apple Support Community post: (I did not find any of them to be free)

One that is listed on Apple's Site for performing the same is https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/pst-converter-pro/id446401009?mt=12

  • Thanks for the solution. I got PST Converter Pro. This is a very helpful tool. Thanks for your help. – Kevin Moss Jan 27 '18 at 11:46

Sorry Kevin, but Apple Mail doesn't support Outlook's .pst or .ost files; there's no direct way to import them into Mail. There are, however, 3rd-party apps that will convert the files for you.

A quick search did turn this article up: https://www.macworld.com/article/2151263/importing-windows-outlook-messages-into-apples-mail.html

which may be useful to you.

Good luck!
