Hello! I have some (obviously) outdated .mmf files created when Microsoft Mail was in use. I'd like to find some way to convert these to .pst format so that I can access the contents. I am looking for some utility or help to accomplish this. There are contents that are sentimental and otherwise valuable and I was not attentive at the time to keeping these imported into newer mail clients.

Please, please, please help me! There MUST some way to do this!

Thanks so much,
Karen

According to this thread - MMF Files - Microsoft Community - outlook 2007 can import it. If you don't have outlook 2007, I can try importing it for you. ETA: read more of the thread and 2007 can't import it - I have virtual machines of all versions.

This is the article Steve mentions- Upgrading From Older Versions of Messaging Clients - Office XP Resource Kit - Microsoft Office (archive.org)
I would greatly appreciate it if you would be willing to import the files for me. Please let me know how best to handle this in as secure a way as possible. Thanks so much, Karen

Also, Diane, I'm wondering about this section of the article, as of course, the files would need to be migrated to Outlook 2016 if I wanted to access them. I technically way out of date in my knowledge, so there's every possibility you will not have to take this part of the thread into account.

"MIGRATING TO MICROSOFT EXCHANGE SERVER
If you plan to migrate your workgroup from Microsoft Mail 3.x to Microsoft Exchange Server, migrate to Microsoft Exchange Server before upgrading to Outlook 2002. Outlook 2002 does not work with Microsoft Mail 3.x post office.

The process of migrating users from Microsoft Mail 3.x post offices to Microsoft Exchange Server involves more than upgrading e-mail client software, and it is beyond the scope of the Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit. The Microsoft Exchange Server Web site contains information that takes you through all the planning and implementation steps necessary to migrate users from Microsoft Mail 3.x to Microsoft Exchange Server. A good starting place is Migrating from Microsoft Mail for PC Networks.

Review this document thoroughly if you plan to move your workgroup to Microsoft Exchange Server."

Importing the files will put them in a pst, which will work in outlook 2016.

Do you use dropbox? If yes, put them files there and share with me at diane @ slipstick.com - if you don't use dropbox, I can share a folder with you to put the file in - I'll send it to the address you used to register with.
