Product Overview

The Export Tool for Mail App allows for the quick and effortless migration from the Windows Mail and People apps into the Outlook desktop application. To accomplish this, the program copies over the messages and contacts from the Mail App database into PST/OST files, links the newly created files to an Outlook profile, and also creates and configures IMAP/POP3 accounts. All you will need to do after exporting the data is to enter the passwords for your accounts.

The Export Tool also allows the conversion of Mail App messages and People App contacts into EML and VCF formats. This means you can use the Windows 10 Mail App migration utility for transferring messages and contacts into any other email client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird or eM Client.

This Windows 10 mail app converter performs an exceptionally precise message conversion, retaining the structure of subfolders, attachments, in-line images, text formatting, headers, and even properties such as importance and flagged status.

Advantages of using the Export Tool for Mail App

Main features

Direct copying of messages from Mail App into Outlook

The Export Tool for Mail App migrates messages into PST files with full retention of text formatting, attachments, in-line images, headers, and properties. You can choose whether to create a separate PST file for each Mail App mailbox or to create a single PST file for all the mailboxes.

Migration of People Address Book into Outlook

This Windows 10 Mail migration tool copies the contacts from the People address book into a PST file, retaining all the fields.

Creating and configuring IMAP/POP3 accounts in Outlook

Depending on your needs, the Windows 10 Mail converter can copy over mail service account settings from Windows Mail into Outlook, including the incoming (IMAP/POP) and outgoing (SMTP) server settings, and link the newly created accounts with the PST/OST files containing the messages from those accounts.

Exporting Mail App messages into EML files

This is another highly useful capability of the Windows 10 Mail Export Tool. Messages saved in EML format can be imported into any email program or online service.

Exporting People app contacts into VCF files

The progratm also saves the People app’s contacts in VCF format. VCF files can be easily imported into any app’s address book.

Retaining the folder structure & folder mapping

When messages are copied from Mail App folders into a PST file, the subfolder structure is retained. Messages from the Inbox folder are copied into a corresponding Inbox folder, messages from the Sent folder are copied into a Sent folder, and so on.

Single, Bulk, and Selective Migration

You can either export an individual Mail App mailbox (or even only some folders from that mailbox) into a PST file, or export all the mailboxes at once.

Auto-detection of the Mail App storage folder location

The application is able to find the folder containing the Windows Mail and People app data on its own. You can also specify the folder path to the data yourself.
