PST Converter Pro is an easy to use but powerful utility to convert your Microsoft® Outlook (Windows) PST file contents to common standard formats [MBOX (.mbox), vCard (.vcf), iCalendar (.ics), Apple Mail Archive, Microsoft® Entourage Archive and EML (.eml)] so that it can be migrated to Apple Mail, Microsoft® Entourage 2004/2008, Mozilla Thunderbird, Postbox or any other software application which supports import from these formats on variety of platforms.
[NOTE: PST files (*.pst) are created and used by Microsoft® Windows based Outlook Application. Microsoft® Outlook on Mac uses different file type (*.olm) for archiving. "PST Converter Pro" handles only PST files. Please use "OLM Converter Pro" to migrate (*.olm) files.]
Some salient features of PST Converter Pro are:
1. Convert your Mails/Contacts/Calendar from Microsoft Outlook PST files to Microsoft Entourage Archive 2004/2008 Or Outlook 2011. Your outlook folder’s hierarchical structure will be preserved.
2. Convert your Mails from Microsoft Outlook PST files to Apple Mail Archive. Your outlook folder’s hierarchical structure will be preserved in Apple Mail.
3. Convert your mails from Microsoft Outlook PST to standard mbox files. You can import these mbox files into Apple Mail, Microsoft Entourage or any other mail client compatible with mbox format on any platform.
4. Convert your mails from Microsoft Outlook PST to eml files. Eml files can be opened with or imported into many email clients on variety of devices and platforms.
5. Preserves non-English content (message subjects and message content in languages other than English including double-byte characters such as Japanese and Chinese language characters). It also preserves date formats belonging to outside United States.
6. Preserves message attachments. Gives special treatment to attached messages (nested messages). Those are also converted to *.mbox or *.eml depending upon chosen export format.
7. SMIME e-mail handling: Capable of handing Secured (SMIME - Clear Signed) and Encrypted (Opaque Signed) e-mail messages.
8. Convert your address book to standard vCard files. You can import these vCard files into Apple Address Book and Microsoft Entourage or any other vCard compatible application. Preserves contact photo, notes and non-English (Unicode) content. It writes more than 60 Outlook Contact fields to ensure no data loss and allows you to merge all contacts into a single vCard file for better portability and data backup.
9. Convert calendar Events to standard iCalander files. You can import these iCalander files into Apple iCal and Microsoft Entourage or any other iCalander compatible application.

It works and is very fast.
This app wokred great. Didn’t have to read anything… it was very intuitive for what I wanted to do…. convert a PST into an importable VCF file. It handled 1200 contacts quickly! I first tried the highly rated CSV to VCARD program….. which was a total bust I was reluctant to use this because it didn’t have any ratings in the search que. However, after doing some googling I found thatCNET rated this program highly also when even though there were not enough reviews to assign a rating after search the reviews that it did have were very high. Funny… I’ve see apps with much less ratings and still they manage to get rated. Apple needs to do a better job on when it assigns starts. . Wish I bought it earlie as waisted a lot of time with other useless apps. $29 was worth it.
While I hate the idea of spending almost $30 for software that is going to do just one thing for me, just one time, I have to acknowledge that at least this program does it perfectly. Plus, a very pleasant surprise was finding that it did it incredibly fast! I was expecting that the conversion of my 125,000 email archive was going to take hours to complete, and I waited until I had a big time gap to get it done. I was therefore quite shocked to find that the conversion was done in only five minutes! It took much longer—fifteen minutes—to load the converted file into Mac Mail. Total job—twenty minutes. Worth the $30.
This skeptic is appreciates something that works so well!!
Having recently moved from a PC to an iMac running El Capitan, I have been struggling with getting my PC’s Outlook PST contents migrated to Apple Mail.
Even though there are plenty of posts about how easily you should be able to get things into MBox format and then into Apple Mail, Mail would always crash at the point if import (lots written about that recently, since El Capitan debuted).
I tried one PST converter for $5, and it just didn’t work. So, I decided to take the plunge and buy this app, and I was very pleasantly surprised (and relieved that it wasn’t just a total waste of $30)!
For reference, my PST was approx 8GB, and spanned 10+ years of important stuff I just didn’t want to lose, so for those that might scoff at spending $30, I view it as an investment well worth it, as it worked exactly as billed, and did it fast. Granted, the likeilhood that I will ever use it again is low, but the fact that it helped me get everything into Apple Mail rocked.
Thank you, thank you, thank you guys.
