Microsoft Entourage is an email client that is developed by Microsoft for Mac Operating System 8.5 and other higher versions. MS Entourage was first released in October 2000, as an information manager, part of Microsoft Office 2001 Suite. Last version of Entourage for Mac 2008 Operating System was released on January 15, 2008 as part of Microsoft Office 2008. Later, in Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac, Entourage got replaced by Outlook 2011.
Some of the functionalities provided by Entourage are email, address book, calendar, tasks, notes and many more. But still use of MS Outlook forces many users to convert Entourage mail to Outlook PST file as shown in the next section.
The native file format of the Entourage mail client is the MBOX file. This file is used to store user data in Entourage. The location of the user data may be different from the default location depending on the version of the Mac Operating System you are using. MS Office creates a Document Folder for each User's Folder. In Entourage, this location is used for folder structure which is the storehouse for all user configurations including email messages, calendars, tasks, cashes, newsgroup subscriptions and other identities.

Most of time users required knowing about the location of Entourage database while moving Entourage emails to Outlook 2013 or older editions.
There may be instances when a user is willing to switch from Entourage mail to Outlook and it may also happen that the user wants to import Entourage database into Outlook. However, Outlook supports only PST file format. MBOX files cannot be accessed in Outlook. This brings in the need for Entourage to PST conversion to export MBOX files of Mac Operating System to Outlook PST file format. Since there is no manual procedure available, we need a third party application that will facilitate moving Entourage emails to Outlook.
The MBOX Converter is the solution to all such related queries. It is a reliable email migrating tool that is easy to use and allows exporting MBOX files to Outlook PST file format. This tool is also capable of detecting the MBOX files without .mbox extension for conversion. Also, Microsoft Outlook installation is not required for the export process.

STEP 1: Once you launch the tool, click on Open. A window will appear. Now, add single or multiple MBOX files by manually selecting or add a folder by clicking on the Browse button.
