The query as how to access .olm (Outlook 2011 Mac) to .pst (Outlook/ Office 2010) arises when there is a need to view OLM data into PST file format behind which there are many reasons. Even Mac Outlook does not directly saves data into OLM files as it gets saved into some archived folders that can further transported into OLM files. At the other end there is not any way with which one can access data of OLM files into PST format due to different properties of files and their structures.
To perform the conversion flawlessly and properly, underneath given the manual process in a streamlined manner, the workaround includes intermediating IMAP set for the manual conversion:-
- Applying an existing IMAP mail account like Gmail is going to be a good example towards implementation of IMAP pass way for OLM PST conversion
- If you do not have a Gmail account, then, first create your own Gmail account, starting from this step
- Once you are logged in, move on to setting tab
- Within the setting page, move on with “Forward and POP/IMAP” tab, perform IMAP activation that further calls to save configuration
- Configure Instruction link that is closest to configure should clicked with Outlook 2007/2010 to setup IMAP at your Mac Outlook
Setting Up Outlook 2011 with an IMAP Gmail Mail Account
- Mac Outlook wizard, within menu find Tools -> Account
- Under Account page option, E-mail option should be opted when you clicked on “+”
- Within Add Email page, fill the account information based on particularly settled IMAP setting.
- Once the IMAP account is implemented successfully, then, you will see that account enlisted within Mail tab
Creating Gmail Label to Synchronize it with Mac Outlook

Shifting Mac Emails Into IMAP mailbox

Email Data Move from IMAP Mailbox to Windows Outlook
