Does Aid4Mail 4 support Microsoft Outlook for Mac?

Aid4Mail version 5 does support .olm files from Microsoft Outlook for Mac.

Aid4Mail version 4 does not support .olm files from Microsoft Outlook for Mac, but it does handle the MBOX file format that Outlook for Mac supports.

If you want to migrate your Outlook for Mac mail to a Windows email program, first convert your Outlook for Mac mail folders to MBOX files. The simplest way to do this is to drag each folder of messages to the Mac desktop.

Outlook for Mac will automatically create an MBOX file for each folder you drag-and drop to the desktop.

Next, you will have to transfer your MBOX files from Mac to Windows.

You can also copy your MBOX files to a CD, DVD, or USB drive, which Aid4Mail can then access from your Windows computer.

Use the “Generic mailboxes” mail source option under the “Generic Mailbox Format” section in Aid4Mail to select your MBOX files and then choose the appropriate target email format when you reach the Target Format screen.

To migrate your Windows email messages to Outlook for Mac, run Aid4Mail on your Windows computer and convert your mail to the “mbox mailbox files” format, which is listed under the “Generic mail formats” section on the Target Format screen in Aid4Mail.

We recommend that you set the File name field on the Target Settings screen to “*.MBOX” (without the quotes), and set the “Target Line Format” option to “Macintosh (CR)”.

You will then have to transfer the mbox files created by Aid4Mail to your Mac system.

Then either use the Outlook for Mac import command to copy your emails into it (File / Import / Contacts or Messages from a text file / Import messages from an MBOX-format text file), or drag-and-drop the MBOX files to the Outlook for Mac folder window.
