On Macintosh, you need to have Office for Mac so one can create a PST file. Also, Outlook for Mac does not use a PST file just like with Windows but instead it stores the messages in a different manner. You can find the files in the following location:
/users/[your username]/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity
Under this folder, the email is stored in the following location:
Outlook for Mac does not support or does not use PST and OST files. Every item is stored as an individual file which allows indexing with Spotlight for searching much easier. The main purpose of creating a PST file on Mac is when installing Microsoft Office Outlook on a new Macintosh so you can import your messages to the new computer.
“OLM” is the data file used for Outlook for Mac. It can be considered as the counterpart of the OST/PST file on Windows. The following are the default locations for the OLM file:
For Outlook for Mac 2011:
/Users/[username]/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2011 Identities/Main Identity
For Outlook for Mac 2016:
/Users/[username]/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile
These locations don’t point to the actual OLM file. The OLM file has to be created by exporting the data to a saving location. To create the file, in Outlook for Mac, go to “Tools” tab then select “Export.” Under “Export to Archive (OLM),” browse the items you want to export then click to continue.
In “Save as” dialog, navigate to the location where you want to save the OLM file then click to save the file. After exporting the data, the OLM file has to be imported to the new Outlook for Mac. On the new Macintosh, in Outlook for Mac, go to “Tools” tab then select “Import.”
On the next screen, navigate to the location of the OLM file you just created, select it then click “Continue.” And that’s it. After importing, the files should now be in their respective folders on the new Mac.
