Stellar OLM to PST Converter – Product Review

0

Stellar OLM to PST converter is designed for successful migration of Outlook for Mac data file (OLM 2011) in to MS Outlook data files (PST). In absence of any such conversion utility from Apple or Microsoft, I found that it is a perfect choice for all those users who wants to switch over to Outlook for Windows from Outlook for Mac. A very good thing about this product is that it is from a Microsoft gold certified vendor.
