Need for Mac MBOX Conversion Tool

MBOX is a very popular file format used by many email clients like Thunderbird, Mac Mail, Spice Bird, Eudora etc. It stores emails, calendars and events and all the other related information under a user profile. The .mbox file can store years worth of emails in a single file. This makes it comparatively slower than other mailbox storage units. The format is compatible across platforms in Windows, Mac and Unix operating system. Whereas a PST file can only be accessed by MS Outlook application on a Windows computer. A .pst file is a personal storage of mailbox data like emails, contacts, events, calendars, notes, journals, tasks etc. It is compatible with Microsoft emailing clients like Windows Messaging, MS Exchange Client, and Outlook. Following are some of the reasons to convert MBOX folders to PST file format:

  • Complete Mailbox support:A .mbox file can only save email files whereas a .pst file contains all personal information like emails, contacts, calendar, notes, journals, tasks etc.
  • Outlook Preference: Many find added features of additional security and cloud support with MS Outlook. Some of these facilities are not available to email clients that support MBOX format like Thunderbird, Eudora, Spice Bird etc. Hence they move from MBOX to PST.
