Aid4Mail MBOX Converter

The most complete FREE solution on the Internet

If you’re like most people, you want a free email converter—but not one that’s complicated or inaccurate. You want an email extractor or migration tool that’s quick and easy—but works well.

There’s just one tool that meets all these criteria: Aid4Mail’s MBOX Converter.

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter is currently the easiest and most complete FREE solution on the internet for converting between MBOX-type mailboxes and EML files.

It converts:

  • MBOX to EML
  • Thunderbird to EML
  • Eudora to EML
  • Between Mac and Windows MBOX
  • Between UNIX and Windows MBOX

Best of all, it’s the only MBOX converter that gives you the seamless experience you’re looking for—at no cost to you.

It’s Your MBOX Converter of Choice

  • Use it as a first step to export Thunderbird to Outlook, Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express.
  • Convert mailboxes to EML files—which can be indexed with Windows' Desktop Search and other search tools—so you can easily find emails.
  • Convert your mailbox from Windows to Mac or UNIX. Or the other way around.

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter is easier, faster and more accurate than other free converters. It even includes several powerful features usually reserved for paid programs.

It’s easier…

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter’s wizard interface can be set up with just the click of a mouse. Its detailed context-sensitive help makes it simple to use, even if you’ve had no previous technical experience.

It’s faster…

Other free conversion programs are slow and unwieldy. Not Aid4Mail MBOX Converter. It incorporates code from the commercial version of Aid4Mail, so the conversion process runs as smoothly as many paid tools.

It also provides an option to include subfolders without manually selecting them, which is a huge time saver for most users.

It’s more accurate…

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter restores folders AND subfolders in the proper hierarchy during conversion, making the next stage of the email migration process easier.

By comparison, most other free conversion solutions group all folders at the same level, which means you have to spend time re-creating your folder hierarchy after conversion.

In addition, Aid4Mail MBOX Converter doesn’t transfer hidden deleted messages (i.e. unpurged mail) like most other free tools do. You see, in most cases, deleted messages aren’t actually removed by your mail program—instead, they’re first copied to the trash folder and then the original message is simply hidden from display.

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter identifies deleted messages and automatically skips them, so they aren’t transferred to your new mail program. Since these hidden messages often make up more than 80% of your email, this can save you hours of clean-up.

Frankly, this feature alone makes Aid4Mail MBOX Converter an unbeatable option, but there’s another feature that makes it even more valuable…

It Keeps Your Emails Intact

Aid4Mail MBOX Converter is one of the rare free programs that actually fixes proprietary Qualcomm Eudora messages, converting them into fully compliant MIME messages. This step is necessary so that other email programs can display the messages correctly.

When you use Aid4Mail MBOX Converter, your Eudora attachments and embedded content are re-inserted into the email message during conversion. That means your important email messages are fully restored. All of them.
