Microsoft Outlook is a comprehensive and advanced email client that’s available for both Windows and Mac OS. The main functions and overall user experience of the software are the same for both operating systems. However, when users switch from Mac Outlook to Windows Outlook, they can’t transfer the mailbox data from former to latter directly. Mac Outlook exports mailbox data in OLM format, while Windows Outlook imports mailbox data in PST format.
To migrate Mac Outlook to Windows Outlook, you may use an advanced OLM to PST converter software. Stellar Converter for OLM is one such specialized software that can directly convert Mac Outlook’s OLM files into Outlook-importable PST files.
User-Friendly Interface and Controls
Stellar Converter for OLM is highly advanced, but it has a simple UI that facilitates Outlook OLM to PST conversion. This is the reason why I faced no trouble getting started with the software. When I launched the software, it automatically opened a file selection window in which I had to browse to the OLM file on my system.
I clicked the Find button, upon which the software asked me to provide a location where it would search for the OLM file. I selected the hard drive partition where I had stored the OLM file for conversion. To my surprise, the software found the OLM file within a few seconds.
Preview and Export OLM Emails with Attachments
Stellar Converter for OLM generates an in-depth preview of OLM files after converting the data. When I converted the OLM file, the tool displayed emails, attachments, and other mailbox items. All these items were neatly arranged in a three-pane window.
In the left pane, I could expand the folders in the OLM file. The middle pane displayed the messages/items stored in the selected folder. And the right pane showed a complete preview of the selected message. This kind of simple approach I find highly effective.
Saves Converted File in Different File Formats
The OLM to PST converter tool saves the converted OLM file into PST, MSG, and EML file formats. While most users would select PST, it’s nice to see that two additional options- MSG and EML, are also given for those who want to save individual messages from an OLM file.
The software can be installed on Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 Operating Systems. The converted PST is also compatible with most Outlook versions, including Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, and 2003. This kind of extensive support allows Outlook users to purchase the product without worrying whether the tool will be supported by their OS or Windows Outlook version.
Stellar Converter for OLM allows you to save log reports of OLM to PST conversion processes. These reports contain key details about the process, such as the start time, issues encountered during the conversion (if any), etc.
Exporting OLM to Office 365 (Technician edition)
Stellar Converter for OLM allows the users to directly export OLM to Office 365. This feature is extremely beneficial for organizations that are migrating to cloud technology (Office 365). However, it is only available in the Technician edition of the software.
Stellar Converter for OLM offers a free trial, which allows the users to get hands-on experience with the product. I tested this trial version and found that I could import an OLM file, convert it, and preview the mailbox, including emails, attachments, etc. for free. Only when I tried to save the data to a PST file, the software asked me to purchase the full version.
