So the user gets into trouble when he migrates from a Linux based email client to a Windows-based email application. Everyone knows that the best email application for Windows is MS Outlook. Therefore in this article, I will discuss the various techniques through which you can easily export a Maildir folder to Outlook.

Manual Methods to Convert Maildir Files to Outlook

Before converting Maildir Files to PST you must take the backup of files into the local machine.

Save Maildir Files on PC

  • Connect your PC to the server in which the Maildir files are stored.
  • Open Mail Folder to view all the items present in it.
  • Now you can view Draft, Sent, Trash, cur, tmp, new, etc in the Maildir File folder.
  • Take the backup of all the items of that folder into your PC.

Now you have saved all the Maildir files into your PC. I know it is a technical process but if you follow each and every step carefully then you can export Maildir files to Outlook easily. There are many tools available in the market so you can try any Maildir converter software to convert Maildir Files to PST and then import PST files into Outlook.

Once you have saved and converted Maildir files to PST, you should import it into your Outlook account. It is very easy to import the converted PST files into Outlook. For doing so you need to follow the simple steps which I am going to tell you in this article.

Import Saved PST Files into Outlook

  • Click on the File tab on the top-left corner of the page.
  • Now, from the dropdown menu choose Open & Export option.
  • In the open menu click on Import/Export option.
  • Select Import from another program or file option from the list and click on Next to continue.
