Overview

Stellar MBOX to PST Converter is an efficient and reliable mailbox conversion tool that is compatible with a range of Windows operating systems, including the most recent one, i.e. Windows 8, and it converts the MBOX types of data files to their corresponding PST files.

Stellar MBOX to PST Converter is an award winning mailbox converter. The software is available in multiple licensed versions, i.e. Single/Home user license and Administrator license. Once the software EXE is downloaded, it does not take more than a few seconds to install and requires at least 50 MB of free space on the boot partition of the computer.

System Requirements

Modern computers have a fully-fledged set of hardware configuration that enables those machines perform considerably well. However, Stellar MBOX to PST Converter performs almost equally well on computers with obsolete hardware configuration. See the ideal system requirements for this email converter below:

  • Operating System(s): Windows 8/ Windows 7/ Windows Vista/ Windows XP
  • Processor: Intel Pentium
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Disk Space: 50MB

Performance

Considering consumers’ perspective brings numerous significant factors in the spotlight, which on collaboration make the overall performance – excellent, good, or satisfactory will decide later. Using the software comfortably requires its user-interface must be simple and descriptive so that the end-user can perform the intended tasks easily as well as efficiently. Well, Stellar MBOX to PST Converter has it (scores 10/10) and everything is so well designed and as descriptive as required.

Furthermore, we land up to the scan engine since scanning is the significant part of converters. At the very first step, the software requires selecting the MBOX file from a location on the computer, and then it scans the selected MBOX file quickly that actually relies on system configuration as well as on the scan engine of the software. Well, as the hardware configuration of the computer I am running the software on is almost similar to that I have mentioned earlier in the System Requirements section, the minimum rating for the scanning phase must not be lesser than 9.8/10 and I would rate it equally.

Preview

Stellar MBOX to PST Converter, as I mentioned above, features preview of the emails after conversion. The preview window is divided into three panes, where the left pane contains the folder hierarchy, which is exactly same as that in the original mailbox – the MBOX file. The right pane has two parts – the upper one reveals the emails in the folder selected in the folder hierarchy, while the lower one displays the contents of the email selected in the upper pane. Likewise, the software generates preview of the converted emails individually, which is really a very nice feature and I rate it 9.9/10. The attachments are also accessible right from the preview pane, but in licensed versions only.
