Toronto, ON Canada (PressExposure) January 02, 2012 -- As more and more home and corporate users opt for Microsoft Outlook as their primary email and time management tool, the problem of transferring data from other email clients becomes a reality for an increasing number of people. Migrations involving thousands of emails in different encodings cannot be performed manually and require fast, efficient and easy to use tools that can help an average user successfully complete these tasks. Outlook Import Wizard is an all-in-one solution for transferring email archives in EML and MSG formats into Outlook's native PST format. The recent release of the program adds plenty of useful features and offers increased performance and improved support of non-standard encodings.
OutlookImport.Com gladly announces the release of a new version of Outlook Import Wizard, its popular email conversion and migration tool that enables users to easily convert thousands of EML and MSG files into a single portable storage (PST) file that can be immediately used by Microsoft Outlook. The new version features a number of serious improvements aimed at making the program considerably faster and compatible with the most recent versions of Outlook.
Outlook Import Wizard is now supplied with two executable files, 32- and 64-bit. Both versions are installed by default and users are free to choose the version they want to start. The 64-bit version is intended for Outlook 2010 64-bit Edition and will not work with other editions. This improvement gives a solid performance boost to all users of the 64-bit edition of Outlook thanks to much faster execution of 64-bit code.
The email processing engine of the program was completely rewritten and improved, which made conversion several times faster. OIW now supports special characters in file names, which was a common problem among users migrating from Mac OS to Windows. Finally, full support of Unicode and UTF-8 in file names and message bodies helps avoid situations with indecipherable and unreadable messages appearing in destination PST files.
The interface of the program also underwent changes. The options page has become a separate step of the wizard and users cannot miss it during the import process. The program now supports language packs that can be easily connected to the program. The list of currently available languages includes English, German, French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Danish and Japanese. Potential contributors of localized files in other languages are very welcome and will get a free personal license as a sign of gratitude once their translation is validated and approved. Detailed instructions on translating the program's language file will be provided upon request.
Outlook Import Wizard offers an excellent combination of speed, ease of use and an affordable price. The program is capable of quickly converting large arrays of EML and MSG email files to the Outlook PST format preserving the folder structure.
