I learnt the same when I was working in a company and they asked me to switch from one place to another.

Then I searched a lot on Google about shifting Outlook mails from Windows to Macintosh and I got the solution.

  2. Now open Outlook in Macintosh OS and click on “File” menu and then click on “Import”.
