To import Olm to Mac Mail, try OLM Extractor Pro
Many users are looking to import Olm directly to Mac Mail. Unfortunately, that’s not possible. Olm is a proprietary file format only compatible with Mac Outlook. If you want to import data to Mac Mail, you need to convert Olm to Mbox. Or you can also convert the file to Mac mail database folder directly.
To convert Mac Outlook data to Mbox files, there is a technique that many people advocate about. It doesn’t need Olm files. You just have to drag each folder to Mac desktop and the emails will automatically convert to Mbox format. It sounds simple and doable, but in practice, it can be quiet exhausting and not at all effective.
- First of all, if there are folders inside a folder, you need to individually select them and drag them to desktop. Otherwise, the sub-folders don’t automatically turn to Mbox files. So the technique is tedious for users with a large database with complex folder structure.
- Secondly, this method is not applicable to contacts and calendar data.
- Thirdly, it takes a lot of time to drag even a single folder with multiple items inside it.
- Fourthly, there is a lot of integrity issues. The items don’t convert properly. There are defects such as missing images inside emails, broken text, damaged attached files, and so on.
Therefore, the technique is fine if you have only one or two folder in Mac Outlook to move to Mac Mail. But is not practical for anything larger than that.
