What is the difference between MSG and PST format?

Outlook can use PST and MSG files to store its data, with the difference that the MSG file contains one Outlook item (message, contact, task, etc.) only, and the PST file contains folders of different types that store many Outlook items. After conversion, the resulting PST files can be connected to Outlook using built-in functionality.

What is the difference between MSG to PST conversion and importing MSG files into Outlook?

The MSG2PST conversion is similar to importing MSG files into Outlook with slight differences:

  • During the conversion the utility creates new or opens existing PST files. To import MSG to Outlook an existing mailbox, Exchange public folder, or data file is required.
  • When converting MSG to PST, you can use macros in the names of resulting PST files. Thus you can save the source files to different PST files, depending on the date of the message, the part of the subject, the recipient and sender data, and other properties of the items in the MSG files. You can also use the date, time, and Windows environment variables in final file names to create flexible sets of PST files.
  • When converting you can automatically split PST files by size. The files will be of the desired maximum size and will not require running a separate utility to break PST files into smaller parts.

How to convert MSG to PST

Choose the source folder with MSG files and the destination PST file folders. Then make the additional setting if needed and run the utility.

Benefit the advanced settings:

  • If you specify an additional destination folder name, a folder with that name will be created in the resulting PST file, and all the converted data will be placed in it. In the name of this folder, you can use the same macros as in file names. Therefore, additional sorting of items by dates, parts of subject, addresses, and other message fields is supported.
  • To get PST files in the same folder structure as in the source folder on the disk or network share, simply leave the name of the additional folder empty.
  • By configuring filters, you can select only contacts, only messages with attachments, only files smaller than the specified size, and many other options.
  • During the conversion process, you can move the source MSG files to another folder. This allows you to run the conversion several times with no duplicates appearing in PST files.

How to convert MSG to PST automatically or on schedule

You can save MSG to PST in batch or automatic mode using the command line. The command line utility allows you to perform MSG2PST conversion on a schedule. Use the utility in various migration scenarios, and backup Outlook data.
