Transfer emails from outlook 2011 for mac to Outlook 2010 for windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to transfer emails from outlook 2011 for mac to outlook 2010 for windows. 

    Outlook 2011 exports mails only in olm format and there is no option to import olm files in outlook 2010.

     I can drag and drop emails from outlook 2011 to a finder folder which saves emails as eml files. How can import eml files into outlook 2010. 

    Please help

  • Hi, 

     

    Thank you for using Microsoft Office for IT Professionals Forums.

     

    Base on the research , We can try the steps below to add the registry sub key. This will open all .eml files that are in the file system using Outlook, including *.eml attachments on messages in OE/WLM. Any replies will be sent using Outlook.

    ===========

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

     

    1.Type regedit in the Search field on the Start menu or press Windows Key+ R and enter it in the Run command.

     

    2.Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Microsoft Internet Mail Message WLMail\shell\open\command Or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Microsoft Internet Mail Message\shell\open\command

     

    3. Change the command line (here its "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe" /eml:%1) to the following line, exactly as shown below but correcting the path to Outlook.exe to match the path on your computer. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE" /eml "%1"

     

     

    Thanks for your understanding.

     

     

    Sincerely

  • I had a similar situation last year when I had to move all my Mac Outlook files to the Windows version. I made a few tests on quite a number of tools that claim to convert OLM files to PST. Every tool lacked in some way from the other. I wanted a tool that could convert all the emails with 100% accuracy. Fortunately! ended up with OLM to PST converter Ultimate. It picked all my emails directly from the Outlook database. It works on Mac only. For the Windows version, you may take a look at- https://www.softakensoftware.com/olm-to-pst-converter.html
