Aid4Mail 5 is a complete rewrite of the software. It offers a brand-new user-interface, conversion engine and feature set. In many cases, you will notice a significant boost in speed—up to 6 times faster. Licensing and pricing are also new and improved, with many former license restrictions removed.

Aid4Mail 5 is available in three distinctive editions: Converter, Investigator and Enterprise. Much simpler than before. Aid4Mail 5 is aimed solely at the professional community with a focus on email forensics, eDiscovery and migration. Low-cost licenses for home and non-professional use are no longer available.

To compare features of the three editions, see the Aid4Mail 5 feature comparison table (PDF).

Upgrade from Aid4Mail Home

Sorry, there is no upgrade path or discount. Licenses for home and non-professional use are no longer available.


Upgrade from Aid4Mail Professional

Choose an Aid4Mail 5 edition

If you use the email filtering features in Aid4Mail Professional then Aid4Mail Investigator is the best match. Filtering capabilities have been significantly improved in version 5. Depending on your source format, you’ll also have access to pre-acquisition native filtering so Aid4Mail only downloads emails matching your search query.

If you use Aid4Mail Professional for email conversion, without filtering, then Aid4Mail Converter is the most cost-effective solution. However, you will miss out on the many new features in Aid4Mail Investigator and Aid4Mail Enterprise.

Upgrade from Aid4Mail Forensic or Aid4Mail Service

Choose an Aid4Mail 5 edition

If you use the console in Aid4Mail Forensic or Aid4Mail Service, then Aid4Mail Enterprise is the appropriate edition. It includes 32 and 64-bit consoles, with a command-line interface (CLI), so Aid4Mail can match the bitness of your Outlook installation.

If you don’t need access to the CLI but use the recovery (of unpurged mail) and filtering features in Aid4Mail Forensic or Aid4Mail Service, then Aid4Mail Investigator is the best match. Filtering capabilities have been significantly improved in version 5. Depending on your source format, you’ll also have access to pre-acquisition native filtering so Aid4Mail only downloads emails matching your search query.

If you only use Aid4Mail Forensic or Aid4Mail Service for email conversion, and don’t use the CLI, recovery or filter features, then Aid4Mail Converter is the most cost-effective solution. However, you’ll miss out on the many powerful new features in Aid4Mail Investigator and Aid4Mail Enterprise.

Upgrade from Aid4Mail Migrator

Choose an Aid4Mail 5 edition

If you use the console in Aid4Mail Migrator or transfer accounts to a live mail server (Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, MS Exchange, or IMAP server), then Aid4Mail Enterprise is the appropriate edition.

Otherwise, if you convert accounts to PST files for bulk-import to Exchange Online mailboxes, then Aid4Mail Converter is the most cost-effective solution. Note that, unlike the Converter edition, Aid4Mail Enterprise can be run from a server, networked computer, or shareable USB flash drive.
