MS Outlook is built in the same way for both Mac and Windows, but there are some inequalities between the features that cause users to convert data from Mac to Windows. Apart from this, there can be many other reasons like moving data from Mac to Windows Outlook etc.
To perform this conversion users have only two methods, either manually and manually convert data from OLM to PST or using a third-party solution.
Manually transfer data from OLM to PST
Follow the steps given below to convert data from OLM to PST manually. For best results, start with small mailbox for OLM to PST conversion.
