How to Tell the Difference Between a Good Email Converter and a Bad One

A quick search on the internet will turn up hundreds of email converter tools, all competing for your attention. You can’t test them all, so how do you know which one is right for you?

Why Should You Choose Aid4Mail?

Aid4Mail is one of the most user-friendly tools on the market. It offers a modern wizard interface and a well-documented user manual. Context-sensitive help is also provided on each wizard screen, so there’s a good chance you’ll never need to open the manual.

Best of all, Aid4Mail integrates accessibility features making it Section 508 compliant. This means it fulfills the necessary requirements for use in U.S. government agencies, large corporations, schools and universities.

Is that all it takes to make a program useful? Of course not. It also needs to get your job done.

Aid4Mail can convert between more than 40 email programs and mailbox formats, as well as all the popular webmail services (Gmail,, Yahoo! Mail). And we don’t stop there. It can customize your output by processing individual mail folders, filtering emails by date range or keywords (*), skipping junk mail and deleted messages, and more.

Aid4Mail even integrates a scripting language (*) that you can use to create your own specialized data exports—a feature you won’t find anywhere else.

But all these great features wouldn’t be much use if the converter lost valuable data along the way. That’s a weakness many of our competitors have. Email conversion is far more complex than it seems and it takes a lot of expertise to create an accurate tool.

We’ve been developing our know-how since 1999 and it shows. Aid4Mail is so reliable that it’s a favorite tool in the computer forensics community. These highly-skilled professionals know that lost data can mean an unresolved crime. So accurate software like Aid4Mail is essential to them.

Wouldn’t you want that same level of accuracy and effectiveness in your own email conversion tool?

By now, you’re probably starting to wonder how much Aid4Mail will cost you. Don’t worry. It’s price is one of its best features! And lower than most of our competitors. Home users may pay as little as $29.95 US for a one-time license. And it’s just $39.95 US for professionals.

(*) The filtering and scripting features are not available in Aid4Mail Home.

  1. To process (from/to) Outlook MSG files, PST files, and Outlook/MAPI mail profiles, Aid4Mail requires either a 32-bit version of Office Outlook or a standalone version of MAPI. For details, free options, and limitations, see the System Requirements.
    Only Aid4Mail Console can export a source MAPI profile or PST file to a target MAPI profile or PST file. With Aid4Mail Home, Aid4Mail Professional, and Aid4Mail eDiscovery, the workaround is to first export your emails to the Outlook MSG format, and then re-export those files to your target format.
  2. Microsoft Exchange can either be processed through an Outlook/MAPI mail profile (1), or through the IMAP protocol in which case the Exchange server needs to be set up for IMAP access (see instructions).
  3. Aid4Mail cannot process encrypted The Bat! mail files. In this case, you will first have to export your messages with The Bat! to a Generic mailbox format, which Aid4Mail can then process to any of the supported formats.
  4. Aid4Mail currently does not offer tools to convert address books, filters, or account settings from one format to another.
