Outlook is seamlessly a great email email client with fully functional features including contacts, calendar, to-do’s etc. However, it is also well known that the Mac version outlook 2011 is plagued with many sync related issues. Slow data download, partial data download, partial emails being displayed etc are all signs of corruption in outlook. You may either try rebuilding the identity or try re-installing the email client. However, it might become frustrating if it start reoccurring or if it does not work at all. This is because as the outlook database size grows it becomes prone to corruption. Even a force quit of outlook might cause corruption in database resulting into instability and errors in outlook.
Due to above mentioned reasons, many of outlook users on Mac prefer migrating to another email client with higher reliability. Migrating to an alternate email client also is not an easy process. This is because outlook can only export emails in OLM format. OLM is Microsoft proprietary email database format so the OLM file can only be read using outlook for mac. This way if you wish to do an inter email client migration, you would have to go through data conversion to supported format. Different email clients support different formats of databases. Popular formats are mbox, rge, pst, eml etc. The conversion can be done using OLM file exported by outlook 2011. However, if outlook is not working altogether or if it is giving error messages, then it might be futile to export emails using outlook as the exported olm file would be prone to errors as well and might be missing on important data. At times, outlook crashes while exporting data without giving any error message. This might result into incomplete data conversion.
