This tool converts emails from Outlook PST data files to EML format. You can keep the original folder structure. EML files are a convenient format for transferring messages between different email clients and systems.
An Outlook Data File (.pst) contains all your email messages, calendar, contact, task data and other Outlook items. To migrate your emails from Outlook to Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and most other email programs, you need to convert emails from pst to eml files.
An EML file is an email message saved by an email application, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird or Apple Mail. It contains the content of the message, and may also store one or more email attachments. Only one message can be saved in EML format, most email clients support importing messages from EML files, but not PST.
The utility provides predefined file naming options for exported EML files:
There are three options for which items to save:
When you select the subfolder processing mode, the utility creates the original Outlook folder structure on your local disk or network share. These folders contain emails converted to EML format.
PST files contain your important and confidential data. When you use an online service to convert email from PST to EML, all of your sensitive data, including private messages, contacts, tasks and notes, is transferred to someone else's server. The data is processed on an unknown computer and you have no control over it. Only then will you be able to download the resulting EML files.
Unlike online converters, our utility works strictly on your computer. Information from the PST data file is not uploaded anywhere. Your data will not fall into the wrong hands.
There is no limit on the number and size of the converted PST files and the resulting EML files. You can convert unlimited folders or files as often as you like.
Since EML is a format for storing only email messages, no calendar, contact, task data and other Outlook items will be saved in it.
When converting, the utility saves all available data, such as:
The program can bulk convert PST to EML in batch scripts using PowerShell, Task Scheduler and other automation tools. To do this, use the command line options of the product.
