Convert Apple Mail to PST File
Apple Mail is a default, pre-installed, email client for all Mac computers. It uses the .EMLX file format for storing messages, which is just a plain text file storing a single email message. They are stored in ‘Mail’ folder in your user library folder.
So, if you want to find them, you can find them under ~user/Library/Mail/ and then look for your particular mailboxes number.
These files can be opened by a normal text editor, but to see all of its contents, you need Apple Mail. And it most certainly can’t be imported to Windows Outlook.
Therefore, many users who want to export Mail data to Windows Outlook look for EMLX to PST converters, where PST is a native and proprietary file format for Windows Outlook.
These converters can extract data from the EMLX files to PST.
Another method for data export is to manually archive everything to an MBOX format from Mac Mail, and then use MBOX to PST converter.
Both of these methods have been in common use. However, they are not the best ways to get your emails across from Mac mail to Outlook. It can lead to several issues relating to loss of information or even corruption. And not to mention, a regular converter takes a lot of time to move every item of information.
So, what else can be done?
