Hey Fellas,

 

I m up with another problem. About 4 months ago I bought MBP and downloaded Outlook 2011 as i was not comfortable with Apple Mail. Earlier i received all my mails in Apple mail, as these mails are of great importance to me so i tried to transfer them to outlook 2011, but i can't.

 

I want to transfer all my mails maintaining the folder structure. Positive answers would be really appreciated.

 

Thanks for help.


MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    The answer was just to your right ------------>

     

    A.) If you want to go Mail ---> ---> Outlook 2011 for Mac =http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2413370  "Import from Apple Mail or Eudora 5.0 or a later version"

    I am using a POP account. I have tried this method before but it doesn't work.

    Open Mail and export the mailboxes to .mbox format (Mailbox Menu>Export Mailbox) that will produce an .mbox file, then in Outlook:

     

    1. On the Outlook for Mac File menu, click Import.
    2. Click Contacts or messages from a text file, and then click the right arrow.
    3. Click Import messages from an MBOX-format text file, and then click the right arrow.
    4. Follow the instructions.

    Sorry pal but this method of yours also didn't work. The files that i need to import are greyed out and cannot be selected. I tried this method saveral times but the result was the same.

     

    Well I was hoping if you can suggest me any software that could help me with this type of problem. Because i have looked into similar kind of queries and there some softwares are recommended.

     

    your help will be really appreciated.

     

    Thanks
