As we talk about the most used application is Microsoft Outlook, professional people are totally relying on this app. Outlook 2011 is supported by Mac and there are many versions of Windows Outlook. Both Outlook stores their file in different file format. But the PST file which is a Windows file format is easily accessible in Mac Outlook and when it comes to Importing emails from Mac outlook to Windows Outlook, then we have to convert Mac database OLM file to Windows PST because OM file is not accessible in other operating systems.

Now consider the user who changed from Mac OS to Windows and need to open all the mail items of OLM file in MS Outlook. How can be achieved? There are several methods to Import emails from Mac Outlook to Windows Outlook.

There can be lots of reasons to Migrate from Mac to PC it totally depends on the user requirements. Suppose if your office work is done in Mac and urgently you need to work from home then you need to import your data from Mac to Windows.

  2. Hit on e-mails.
  3. Add IMAP account info.
  4. After all settings done, you will see the Gmail mail tab.

To sync mails and transfer follow the steps below:

  • Go to Labels in the Gmail settings.
  • Create a new Label and tick the IMAP option.
  • Refresh the Mac Outlook by clicking Send/Receive option.

  • Required some technical knowledge.
  • Ineffective if OLM files are corrupted etc.

For saving time and efforts it is easy to use third party tools. There are many tools you can find on the web.
