Microsoft Outlook has created a common ground between Mac and Windows operating systems. Generally, the applications used in both operating systems are different and the users are bound to run such software separately for the same kind of tasks. Thanks to MS Outlook, the user can get the benefits of efficient email communication without changing the type of application. The only difference between Windows-based MS Outlook and macOS-based MS Outlook is their data file. Outlook for Mac creates OLM files, whereas Windows Outlook creates PST files.
In the PST file, there is a single data file containing different mailboxes, but in Outlook for Mac, the mailboxes are not saved in the same data file. Data items are stored separately and it is the basic reason why the user cannot open OLM files in Outlook for Mac directly.
Open OLM file in Outlook for Mac
The user can export OLM files in Outlook for Mac exclusively using the following steps-
- In Outlook for Mac, go to Tools and choose Export.
- The new wizard is ‘export to archive (.olm)’ in which you can various mailbox items like mail, tasks, calendar, notes, and contacts.
- In the next window ‘Save Archive File (.olm),’ choose the destination for the new OLM file.
