Convert Pst file to Mac Mail in Mbox format – Quickly, and without much stress. “Pst Extractor Pro” will help you do that.
I recently tried “Pst Extractor Pro” to convert my Pst files to Mac Mail Mbox format. It is an amazing tool that helped me convert the data with high accuracy and ease. If you are looking for the same thing, I'd suggest you download the tool right. You can download the free edition here.
“Pst Extractor Pro” can handle multiple Pst files at one time, and can convert all of them to Mbox format.
Actually, it has other output formats as well, such as Postbox, Olm, Thunderbird, Entourage, Eml, etc. But for this article, I am going to focus on Pst to Mac Mail conversion, because that's what I did, so I am going to review upon that.
Pst and Mbox are two very different file formats for Windows Outlook and Mac Mail. And there is no option to import Pst files into Mac Mail, so that's why the best way to move your emails is to convert the files from Pst to Mbox format.
It would be good if I had realized that soon. I wasted a lot of my time in various methods that didn't really help me. They were all manual methods that needed a lot of work, and in the end the conversion of data wasn't even good enough to accept. I noticed that my attachments and some of the images were missing via those methods. And I read somewhere that it could even result in corruption of original data.

At last, after trying all of that, I was provided relief by “Pst Extractor Pro”. It worked so well that it exceed all my expectations. All I had to do was first export the emails, contacts, and calendar data from Outlook to Pst files, load those files to this tool, and choose “Mbox” as an output format.
The Mbox files that it generates after extracting all the data from Pst files is highly accurate. None of the attachments or images were lost. There was no corruption of data.
There were few other features that I particularly liked. For instance- there was an option where I could save read/unread emails in separate folders. Etc.
Another added functionality that servers well for this task is the automatic conversion of contacts and calendar entries. The tool will itself read the folders that contain these items (emails, or contacts, or calendar data) and convert them to appropriate format. For emails, it is mbox; for contacts, it is Vcf; for Calendar data, it is Ics file. Furthermore, you could also merge the data from one folder to a single Vcf or Ics file.
The transferring of email data from two different operating systems is always a little tricky. The solutions mentioned on internet generally don't help, in fact they make the matter worse. That's why I think “Pst Extractor Pro” is a priceless software that simplifies an otherwise tedious task.
