Use Outlook 365 for Mac [version 16.27] to archive emails to hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to save old emails to an archive that sits on my iMac hard drive - rather than an archive that sits on a Microsoft exchange server.

    Which buttons in sequence do I push in latest [version 16.27] Microsoft 365 to achieve this simple age old task?

    Have spent 4 hours with microsoft support of various levels - all of whom found my questions strange and claimed never to have heard it before.

  • Hi Chris,

    According to my research, I'm afraid there is not a direct way to archive your messages to hard drive. As a workaround, it is suggested to export the messages as .olm files and store them in hard drive.

    Besides, there is a thread for your reference.

    Archiving emails from Outlook on a Mac.

    Hope this can be helpful.
