Convert EMLX to PST

EMLX file format is associated with Mac Mail. Each EMLX file store single email along with its attachments, headers, and other contents. Do not confuse this with EML file, which is primarily used by Windows Outlook Express and has become a generic format that is used by many email clients.

These files are saved in the users’ library folder, under ‘Mail’ folder.

To move Mac Mail data to Windows Outlook, you can convert EMLX files to PST using a third party tool. Or, you can archive all of your data into an MBOX file (the archived format used by Mac Mail) and then convert it to PST. And the third choice you have is to use an IMAP email account and its server and sync the data to it, and sync it back from the server to Windows Outlook.

These data migration methods are in common use. The last one (syncing data using IMAP account) is very rarely used because of innumerable complications related to it. The rest of them can be viable depending on the user and which tool you are using. Most of the MBOX or EMLX to PST converters are poorly built.

The freeware is even worse. Many users have reported loss of data, corruption, and countless other issues with free tools.

Keep in mind that converting email data is a complex procedure, and it is unlikely that a free tool will be able to do it correctly. Worse than that, these tools often come from unreliable places. So the chances of risking your machine with viruses and malware is also big. In some extreme cases, the unreliable freeware is also associated with data theft.

No wonder why every email migration expert suggests to stay away from them.

If you are feeling a bit disappointed, here’s the part that will make you feel good.
