Move Emails from Outlook 2011 to Thunderbird
Thunderbird is a great email client, which can be used in all three major OS, including Mac, Windows, and Linux. So much that it even directly competes with Outlook, a popular IM from Microsoft. And it’s free!
As a consequence, most users use Thunderbird as their primary email client. And if not primary, it is at least installed on their Mac and used as a supplement with Outlook for Mac.
However, for users that use both of these clients together, there can be an issue regarding data. If all of your data is on mail servers and none in archived format, it will be fine for you. Since the client will sync everything seamlessly across itself and the server. But the archived data is hard to swap or transfer across both clients.
So, what can be done?
If you want to move many folders in an locally archived state inside Mac Outlook 2011 to Thunderbird, what exactly can you do?
Unfortunately, you cannot simply move OLM files since it is not compatible with Thunderbird. You cannot sync them to servers first, as it take unreasonable time to complete. You cannot forward them one by one to your email account.
Way to Convert Outlook 2011 to Thunderbird
The better solution is to convert that OLM file into a Thunderbird compatible files. And you can do that with the help of “OLM Extractor Pro.”
As the name suggests, this tool extracts contents from OLM files and convert them to Thunderbird files. In fact, the tool can even convert OLM files to multiple formats including MBOX, Apple Mail, Postbox, EML, and Entourage. But for this article, let’s just stick with OLM to Thunderbird conversion.

Here’s how to use the tool:
- Launch “OLM Extractor Pro,” and click on “Load”
- Locate your OLM files and select them
- In the ‘View’ section, you can see the folders inside OLM. Check the ones you want to convert to Thunderbird.

There might be few more features that allow for you to control more aspects of migration, but aren’t mandatory. They often come in use when migrating in larger projects (Entire databases leading up to multiple gigabytes).
This is a much simplified approach to an otherwise convoluted job. And only “OLM Extractor Pro” makes it so. If you want to try manual methods or any other traditional software, you can do so, but you’ll soon find out they are all not effective.
“OLM Extractor Pro” had dedicated algorithms for data safety and accuracy of output files.
