Here's How to Convert Olm to Pst in Mac in 5 Simple Steps
One of the best ways to deal with emails is a desktop based email client. Web browser based clients are fine to access your emails from anywhere, anytime. But they don't allow much functionality for properly managing the complete data.
One of the best desktop based email clients on Mac is Outlook 2011. It has an extensive list of features that extend way beyond what other ordinary clients offer. It also offers a feature to export and archive your data to an Olm file to store in your local hard drive for future uses. This system of backing up your data has been proven to be very helpful.
However, that's not the only use of an Olm file. You can also share it with others via email or other file sharing means and easily share thousands of emails via just one file. It is also used when you want to convert your data to transfer to other email clients within Mac or other platforms. Such as – converting Olm to Pst to move to Windows Outlook.
