    "Outstanding product - The MS tool stinks..."

    September 14, 2014   |   By jrwooden

    Version: Aid4Mail 3.41

    Pros

    Very detailed import / translation tool, it really does not get any better than this!

    Cons

    None ... ok ... one con: It's not free ;-)
    Read the manual to make sure you understand the options and command line switches if you are a geek!

    Summary

    The Microsoft provided import tool is a real embarrassment ... I found it incorrectly imported most of my e-mail. HTML emails and emails with embedded images were totally unreadable and the images were lost in most cases.

    I ran a free trial with Aid4Mail and it worked VERY VERY well, so I purchased a license, and the import executed properly on my Eudora installation of almost 100,000 emails. The conversion tool is very detailed and through. It did take a fairly long time to run as my mail folders were large, but I was more than willing to wait given the high caliber of the output!

    "Great product! Excellent support! Does what it says!"

    July 05, 2014   |   By irishmist1039

    Version: Aid4Mail 3.41

    Pros

    This software works! It does what it promises, and the Tech Support is excellent. I wish I'd known about it 3 weeks earlier, which would have saved me hours of time and many headaches. I am so grateful that Aid4Mail was able to convert my Outlook Express files to PST, which enabled me to get them into Outlook 2013.

    Cons

    If you have McAfee Antivirus, you may want to turn it off while running the conversion. Things may have gone a bit more smoothly if I knew how to work all the new

    Summary

    Are you like me? One of the holdouts who kept Windows XP on their computer because it worked well without any problems? And continued to use Outlook Express for the same reason? Well thanks to Microsoft's cut-off of support to that operating system, I was forced to get a new computer. So I went with the "latest and greatest" . . . the Windows 8.1 operating system, Office Home and Business 2013, which includes Outlook 2013. A Microsoft machine to another Microsoft machine, so should be easy to transfer everything over, right? WRONG!!!! And nobody tells you about that before getting Outlook 2013, rather than looking to find the 2010 version, which does apparently transfer those files easily. So let me tell you this: MICROSOFT OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6 AND MICROSOFT OUTLOOK 2013 are in NO WAY compatible! And after DAYS upon DAYS and HOURS upon HOURS of struggling to create PST files, or find some other way to transfer the files, on the phone much of that time and transferred from person to person at Dell, Microsoft and Comcast Tech Support, nothing was changing that fact. None of us could transfer the DBX files of Outlook Express to the PST files needed for Outlook 2013.

    And then there was Aid4Mail, which promised to convert those troublesome DBX files to PST, and ALSO keep the folder and file structure intact. At this point, I was desperate to try anything, and was now willing to pay for a solution if one were available. I have over 7000 emails, and almost 2000 contacts in my contact list. Programs such as Windows Live Mail could import the files, but not keep the folder structure. With that many emails, that's as bad as not importing any because I couldn't find anything without them being ordered. And then there was Aid4Mail!

    I have to say I had some difficulty with it, and perhaps the McAfee Antivirus that came with this machine was interfering. But Julian, the Tech Support guru at Fookes Software, was knowledgeable, diligent and persistent in helping to transfer my files to PST. While they are based in Switzerland and I'm on the East Coast of the U.S., he stayed up longer hours to reply to my emails when I was having difficulty with the program. But he assured me that the software could do the job, and he was right. I now have all my emails from my old machine on my new machine, in their complete order, with what appears all folders working. I'm able to save new mail into the old folders. And though I struggled almost a month to get this to work, without Aid4Mail and Julian, I'd still be frantic and trying.

    The software is a download that comes with a free trial, so you can check to see if it will work first. It is an email migration program that will migrate other email programs as well, not only Outlook Express files. Then you have a choice to buy the license for a year, or take a one-time license that's good for 2 weeks. I wish I'd known earlier that there was no way to transfer those DBX files into PST files, and that Aid4Mail existed. I could have saved myself so much time and aggravation. This software is surely worth the money.

    "Great product, excellent value"

    June 30, 2014   |   By LLamabob

    Version: Aid4Mail 3.41

    Pros

    My wife has a home-based business, with years of Thunderbird emails. Her XP desktop finally wouldn't boot, so I bought a new system which included Outlook 2013. I connected her old hard drive to a USB adaptor, and then bought Aid4Mail. It transferred all of her emails in maybe 15 minutes, and preserved the date received, and folders. Its well worth the money, and its a great feeling to have all of those emails back on her new computer.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    Excellent product and value !
