How to Convert Outlook PST Emails to XML

XML illustration with brackets.

There are many reasons to convert important emails from an Outlook .pst file into xml files: storage, import into another application like a CRM system, preservation, archiving, and conversion are just a few examples.

Software programmers across all languages are able to work with XML files, which define important email file fields between tags.

In an Outlook email file, there are many standard fields that define the data contained in an email message that is stored in a .pst file, or as a .msg file. Converting these fields into a standard xml object simplifies a software programmer’s work with email files.

Fortunately, PstViewer Pro by Encryptomatic LLC makes it easy to convert an Outlook email file into a xml file.
