How to Import Outlook OLM into Apple Mail?
You have been a user of Outlook for Mac for many years. But now, you are switching to Apple's default Mail client. All of that is Ok, but you are probably stuck during data migration.
What is data migration?
Whenever anyone changes its computer or just a software program (like email clients), he or she also needs to migrate the important from one to another. This is most difficult with emails, since the data files used by different clients are diverse in every aspect.
Moving from Mac Outlook to Apple Mail faces the same situation. OLM file for Outlook and MBOX for Apple Mail are two diverse data files. Nothing in common except they are used to store email messages.
So if you are looking to import Outlook OLM into Apple Mail, here's the bad news - you can't!
OLM will go unrecognized by Apple Mail client. There is not even an option to import files with .*olm extension. If you even copy and paste the OLM files manually into Mails' database directory, it won't show up anywhere in Apple Mail. Only Outlook can open and read OLM files, and no other application.
The good news is - there's an excellent solution to this. And no, it's not manually dragging the folders from Mac Outlook into your desktop to turn them into MBOX files. That's a very old method, now almost non-existent due to variety of reasons, such as, loss of time, incomplete files transfer, partial migration, corruption, etc. And also, it doesn't apply to your contacts and calendar data.
