I just used Aid4Mail to do an O365 collection and create a PST. I write to say ‘THANKS’ because Aid4Mail performed like a champ. I’m grateful to have your product in my toolkit. Please keep up the good work!

I often recommend my clients utilize Aid4Mail to assist in the conversion, search, and export of emails to aid in their eDiscovery cost containment strategies. Aid4Mail impressively allows flexibility in handling the myriad email formats found on modern computers, and is one of my must-have tools.
Richard D. Lutkus – Partner – Seyfarth Shaw LLP (UK)
I work for a law firm and we used your product to convert a MBOX file to PST. This software worked brilliantly, it even fixed corruption that existed when we attempted to do it manually or with other software. Thank you for that.
