Convert email to a standard portable format.

Overview

Emailchemy reads email files from the proprietary formats of most popular email applications and converts them to standard formats that any application can use. Includes a toolbox of utilities for managing email, including an Address Harvester, Mailbox Splitter, an embedded IMAP mail server for importing converted mail into most modern email clients, and a tool for uploading email into Google Apps.

Emailchemy currently can read the email files and mailboxes from:

  • AOL for Windows
  • Apple Mail
  • Claris Emailer
  • CompuServe Classic for Mac (MacCIM)
  • CompuServe for Windows
  • Entourage
  • Eudora
  • Mozilla (and Thunderbird)
  • Mulberry
  • Musashi
  • Neoplanet
  • Netscape
  • Opera
  • Outlook for Mac
  • Outlook for Windows
  • Outlook Express 4 and 5 Mac
  • Outlook Express 4, 5 and 6 for Windows
  • Outlook Express 5 for UNIX/Solaris
  • Outspring
  • PowerTalk/AOCE for Mac
  • QuickMail Pro for Mac
  • QuickMail Pro for Windows
  • Windows Live Mail
  • Windows Mail
  • Yahoo! downloaded mail archives
  • any UNIX-style mailbox (BSD mbox format)

Emailchemy currently can rewrite any of the above formats into:

  • RFC-822 mailboxes (commonly known as "mbox" or "UNIX-style")
  • Folders of individual RFC-822 email files (.txt or .eml files)
  • Comma-separated value files (.csv)
  • Variations of the RFC-822 mailboxes that are directly usable by Thunderbird and Apple's Mac OS X Mail

Very useful app but like someone already said below, it is something you only use once in a blue moon. I've purchased licenses for versions 9-11 but the lack of a cheaper upgrade path as well as the fact that it IS a one trick pony makes it very unlikely that I'll buy a license for version 12

This is the Swiss Army knife for email on the Mac. It has been around for over 10 years and it has performed for me many times. The software developer is highly responsive to any questions and in exchanges I have had, he has quickly added improvements as necessary. This is an area where I have seen user/developer exchanges really work to the community's advantage. Email is something we all take for granted, but behind the scenes it is a real labyrinth to ensure compatibility between systems. This developer has HUGE experience in all this. Something you appreciate when, if you are not a professional forensic specialist, you only venture into this world from time to time. Five stars.

Its essentially a subscription vs. an app purchase. I bought it in late 2015 and it version 12.x didn't work with Outlook for Mac 2016.

So, I never used it until today and want to try it to export some email from a backup drive and import it into the latest Outlook for Mac. Guess what. I don't qualify for the current version which works, because I'm outside of the one year of my subscription.

They didn't release a version that worked with Outlook for Mac 2016 until well after the year after my Sept 2015 purchase. So, I never would have had a chance to use my purchase.

Poor customer service. They just offer update pricing discount. I can't say that it doesn't work today.

Update: A different support rep has implied that my earlier purchase should allow me access the life of the v13 build train, with its bug fixes in the recent release; this which sounds fair and what is expected. So, still TBD.

The latest customer service rep got me set up with the download and resent my registration key. I'll now be able to test it with Outlook for Mac v 16.7. Then I'll come back here.

Overpriced. Especially since it will be used once.

The amount of work that the developer has to do, doesn't change because you only use it once.
If you want such programs to exist, then developer has to make enough to make a living. Developers, who have starved to death don't product much code.

The installer doesn't work. It starts by saying that it is preparing the 4jWizard and then quits. No Wizard is launched.

There's actually a 50% discount for renewals, which you would qualify for since you've already purchased the product.

Does what it says and does it well. One minor quibble is that it costs to update annually ... which make sit more expensive than it probably should be. That said, you don't need to convert your e-mail annually (once in a blue moon is more like it) so you'r eprobably only looking at paying for an update every few years or so

Doesn't convert from Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac (the latest version of Office). Looks fantastic otherwise.

It does convert from Outlook 2011 for the Mac. What program are you trying to convert to?

I purchased this application to convert a windows outlook .pst file into mac mail format. I received my license key within 30 seconds of paying for it and downloaded the full version. After downloading, it took less than one minute for this software to process and convert 500+ e-mails (attachments included) ... done! I definitely recommend this application! ;-)
