Best way to convert MBOX to Outlook 2013
If you have an MBOX file from sources like Google or Thunderbird, but you use Outlook 2013, you must be looking to convert that file to Outlook 2013. That’s the only solution to import MBOX files in Outlook 2013 since it’s not supported. MBOX file is not readable by Outlook 2013 or any other edition, in neither Windows nor Mac Outlook versions.
However, there exist a lot of third-party file converters that can help you convert your MBOX files to PST, which is you can then import into Outlook. But most of those converters are really limited and can even be a threat to your data integrity. If you are going through that route, you must keep in mind the problems you might face.
First of all, the conventional MBOX to Outlook 2013 PST converters can be quite hard to use by beginners. Even for experts, they are annoying because of poorly built user-interfaces and unnecessary manual inputs that they require.
Most worst of all, and this is the most feared drawbacks of almost all typical MBOX to Outlook 2013 converter, their conversion algorithms are too weak to convert data cleanly. What this means is that you will never find your output PST files with similar data and data structure like original.
Most of the times, you might find the items listed below either lost completely or not converted accurately:
- Folder hierarchy (the structure or the arrangement of your folders)
- Non-English text characters inside email bodies, especially the ones encoded using double-byte characters, like Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.
- Any graphical objects, like images, graphs, logos, icons, etc. embedded inside email bodies
- Nested emails and the structure of the emails
- Email items and their properties, such as metadata, headers, time and date stamps, email addresses (to, from, cc, bcc), subject line, etc.
Losing these components or seeing them incoherently converted through ordinary conversion tool is not good. For work related email data, it’s an absolute nightmare, but even for home users, it can be quite painful.
So, I think it’s been established quite firmly that converting MBOX to Outlook 2013 PST files is difficult. And it’s especially a daunting task if you don’t have proper tools.
