Outsmart Imbox

Outsmart Imbox facilitates the migration from other email servers to Microsoft Outlook and Exchange.

Running on Windows, it extracts messages from mbox files and imports them into specified folders in Outlook or Exchange stores. (If you would prefer to migrate data from your old server via IMAP, please consider ExBridge.)

Imbox is intended for use by system administrators and migration experts, and is supplied in the form of a command-line program that you run in a console window. This design makes it easy to automate via command files or scripts.

Key features
  • Imports messages directly into Exchange Mailboxes, Outlook PSTs, or any other MAPI-standard mail store.
  • Migrates messages from most UNIX and Linux mail servers.
  • Also works with mailbox files created by Thunderbird, SilverDane and Evolution.
  • De-duplication option facilitates migration of, for example, overlapping archives.
  • Scripting supports migration of multiple mbox files to multiple Exchange Mailboxes (potentially millions of messages) in one shot.
  • Can import at a rate of 50GB per hour.
  • Can be run remotely using telnet or a utility such as PSExec.
  • Works with Exchange Online/Office 365.
  • Customized versions are available (at extra cost).
  • Writes log files detailing all operations that it performs.

For migration via Outlook, be that into Outlook or Exchange stores, the requirements are:

  • Outlook 2003 or 2007 or the 32-bit edition of Outlook 2010, 2013 or 2016.
  • Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 2012, 7, 8 or 10.

For migration directly into Exchange stores, the requirements are:

  • Exchange 2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013. (For Exchange 2007 and later, either Exchange MAPI or Outlook must be also be installed.)

Please try our demo/evaluation package. This version of the product is fully functional except that it will import a maximum of ten messages from each mbox. You may also read the Imbox User Guide online.


Imbox is priced at US$449 per site license, and US$1,499 per enterprise licence. If you are migrating your organization's own data then a site license is appropriate if you are moving to a single Exchange Server (irrespective of the number of users/mailboxes); an enterprise license is appropriate if you are moving to four or more Exchange Servers. If you are migrating to Outlook/PSTs that are not in an Exchange environment, then a site license is appropriate for a single location (office, campus, etc.) while an enterprise license is required for use at multiple locations. If you are a service provider migrating data belonging to other organizations then purchase a site or enterprise license, as appropriate, for each migration project.
