How online conversion from IncrediMail IML to PST works
IML the native mail message formats for the IncrediMail 2.5 email client. Microsoft Outlook cannot read IML format directly, nor can it import email messages from IncrediMail. Unfortunately, IncrediMail also cannot export data to Outlook directly. There are desktop apps to perform such conversion, but installing third-party software is not always the best option. With ConvertEmail.Online you can quickly convert IML files as well as the entire Mail Store to a PST file.
Here is how you can do this:
Pack the Message Store folder to a ZIP archive
What is Message Store? It is a folder where IncrediMail keeps e-mail data: messages, attachments and so on. Often, IncrediMail mail format is referred as *.IML, but this is not exactly so. In fact, the entire folder holds data of user’s e-mails and the main email allocation database file MessageStore.db.
To successfully convert IncrediMail messages to Outlook PST, you need to pack the entire Message Store folder within all files and subfolders to a single ZIP archive.
How to find the Message Store folder?
The default folder for IncrediMail 2.5 data files is:
C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Local Settings\Application Data\IM\Identities\[Identity_ID]\Message Store\
Message Store folder is marked red on following picture:
Minimum data for IncrediMail to PST conversion
If you want to minimize the amount of data, you may open the Message Store folder and pack only the database file called “MessageStore.db” and two folders called “Messages” and “Attachments“. Attachments folder may be ignored in case if you don’t need attachments to be imported together messages. In this case please be ready to see the “missing attachment” notes in your imported emails.
Upload the ZIP archive to the cloud conversion service
To upload the packed Message Store of IncrediMail, please go to this page and select an appropriate uploading method.
