    I had liked to narrate something I faced recently. I have fed Outlook Windows mails directly to Outlook Mac in the past quite a time. Never have I faced any issue. However, recently, I had to try the reverse. However, the Outlook Mac exported files were not imported well on the Windows side. This was beyond our expectation. I got to know that there are third-party solutions for the same. However, they were not free. I took a few trials. Later I bought OLM to PST converter Ultimate. It was perfect at conversion- both by speed as well as accuracy. This tool belongs to Gladwev. http://www.gladwevsoftware.com/olm-to-pst-converter-ultimate/

    OLM to PST conversion would be easy if you will use authentic solution. OLM and PST both are mail database files of Outlook application. But the major difference is that both file support different operating systems, OLM file support Mac and PST file support Windows Operating Systems.
