How to Migrate Pegasus Mail to Office 365 ?

Nick Rogers ~ Modified: 10-12-2021 ~ Convert Emails ~ 2 Minutes Reading

For 30 years, people have trusted Pegasus E-mail. The initial proprietary email client built for NetWare networks, including MS-DOS and Apple Macintosh clients, has only received Microsoft Windows platform support since.

Pegasus Mail (PMail) is a standalone application built for single and multi-user situations. However, with the development of cloud-based email systems, Pegasus Mail’s proportion of the market has diminished.

We will discuss how users can migrate from Pegasus Mail to Office 365, and why.

Why leave Pegasus Mail for Outlook/Office 365?

As compared to Outlook in Office 365, expansion of Pegasus Mail has been limited by lower usage and financing. Here are some reasons users may switch from Pegasus Mail to Office 365.

While the Pegasus Mail user interface has stayed same for decades, advancements in Outlook and Office 365 / Microsoft 365 have made Pegasus Mail a very usable application.

The extensive screening and security capabilities of Office 365/Microsoft 365 are on par, if not better than Pegasus Mail.

Anyone who uses Office 365 does not need to be highly-techy.

Any device will allow you to access your Office 365 emails using Outlook.

 

How to Convert Pegasus Mail to Office 365?

Pegasus Mail saves data in Unix mailbox files with PMM and CNM extensions. The PST format files must be converted before importing into Outlook.

Complete the steps below to move Pegasus Mail to Office 365.

  • Make new Unix mailbox folders and copy all emails into them. MBOX extension will be available.
  • Files in PST format must be converted into MBOX for migrating to Office 365.
  • Import PST files to Office 365 for a small number of mailboxes.

Alternatively, users can upload the files to Azure, where they will be available for import into new Office 365 mailboxes.
