Article describes how to transfer IncrediMail mail to Outlook with help of IncrediMail to Outlook Converter if the IncrediMail and MS Outlook are installed at your system. A lot of IncrediMail users faced with the problem that it is not allowed to export data from IncrediMail client. It is possible to save only one email but it is not working for all emails inside IncrediMail. So you need to use the special tool like IncrediMail to Outlook Converter to transfer emails from .IMM files into Outlook.
Even you have no MS Outlook installed you may extract emails from IncrediMail .IMM files and save them to multiple files of .EML format. Those .EML files can be easily imported to Outlook Express, ThunderBird, The Bat or any other supported email client.
IncrediMail to Outlook Converter is powered with several modules for importing, exporting and conversion of IncrediMail email messages. First module allows to import IncrediMail emails inside Default Outlook User Profile. Second module performs the extraction of IncrediMail emails and saves each email to separate files of .EML format. And third module (added in the latest converter version) makes it possible to export IncrediMail emails to the solid file of .PST format.
Microsoft Outlook uses PST files to store emails, notes, contacts, appointments and other data. Our IncrediMail to Outlook utility enables the batch conversion and performs the massive email transfer from IncrediMail data storage to the file of .PST format. It creates the new, empty PST file, then adds folders in accordance with the list of IncrediMail folders names. Then IMM converter transfers emails and attachments inside each folder. PST file can be optionally password protected.
Question: All was going fine until I received an error message “syntax error : could not locate root part“. I tried many times, it bugs every time on the same mail. My incredimail doesnt launch anymore, so I cannot manually delete this mail. I can’t find any docs about this, can you help ?
Answer: You have to repair IncrediMail database file called Containers.db and start the cobversion with healthy database file. Alternatively you may use the recovery version of our converter.
Method #1. Using the command line.
If you’re comfortable with command line, in some cases database could be restored using this method:
- get latest sqlite3.exe from www.sqlite.org
- open your database in sqlite3: “sqlite3 database.db”
- dump your database using sqlite3 command: “.output database.sql” “.dump” “.quit”
- restore sql dump into a new database: “sqlite3 database_new.db” “.read database.sql” “.quit”
The above could rescue corrupt database and make it readable again, so you can export all the recent stuff. I still recommend to re-create database from scratch by re syncing it with the service, then importing the recent notes exported from the rescued database.
Method #2. Using IncrediMail Recovery software.
As alternative, you may use IncrediMail Recovery version of our converter to extract data from IMM files without using Containers.DB. After that you may reinstall IncrediMail and import extracted emails into healthy application. Extracted emails can be imported also to Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, The Bat! and many other email client software.
- Remove (uninstall) the usual IncrediMail Converter if it is installed
- Download and install the IncrediMail recovery tool (special edition of the converter)
- Run installed converter
- Select your Message Store and Attachment directories
- Select .IMM files to be recovered
- Press “Save .EML” button
- Define the folder to save repaired IncrediMail emails
- Wait till the end of the emails extraction procedure
To import emails to IncrediMail or another email client application you have to select email files and drag them to the corresponding folder inside your email client.
Since so many people “downshift” from regular email agents to IncrediMail to enjoy the elegance, simplicity and user-friendliness of its interface, the question of why anyone would want to go back seems to be a good one.
IncrediMail has always been known for being an email agent for the creative crowd, a program that offered typical email exchange functionality, but complemented it with so many unique “blows and whistles” that it created a unique user experience not found in any other email programs. In simple words, IncrediMail enabled people to have fun sending email by adding cute animations and 3D effects to messages, use thousands of emoticons and sounds, customize message backgrounds and do a lot more! But these attributes are absolutely useless in the corporate world, where proper integration with the enterprise IT environment and compliance with corporate standards have always been top priorities. Those users who decided to make the switch faced a serious problem when they were forced to go back to Outlook. They realized that they had to convert IncrediMail to Outlook to overcome the incompatibility between the two formats. So if you are in the process of replacing IncrediMail with Outlook, have never dealt with converters of any sort and need to urgently convert IncrediMail to Outlook, it’s a good (and, probably, the best) idea to find a tool with the highest level of automation. It will help you convert IncrediMail to Outlook within a few clicks and will ensure that the conversion process is fast and accurate.
This IncrediMail converter drastically simplifies the Incredimail migration process by automating message extraction, conversion and saving. As a user, all you need to do is to start the program and hit a single button. If IncrediMail is currently installed on your computer, you won’t even have to look for its data files – the IncrediMail converter will find them for you. If you only have the data files, but no IncrediMail on your PC, you can specify their location manually. Once done, you can select the IncrediMail IMM files that will be used for IncrediMail conversion and change the single setting offered by the program – final location of the soon-to-be- converted files. Once done, click the “Import” button to get the ball rolling.

Historically, the IncrediMail mail client has gained a reputation of a strong alternative to most other email applications that were mostly tailored for the corporate world and demanding users who wanted to control nearly every aspect of their daily emailing activities. IncrediMail, on the other hand, offered a different approach to email exchange and faced all other users who sought a way to add more fun to their daily communication with friends and colleagues. As the result, IncrediMail is one of the very few email clients on the market that is functional, entertaining and plain exciting to use. The program offers animated emoticons, customizable message backgrounds and themes, action-specific animations, sounds and a bunch of other features that make the program stand out of the crowd of nearly identical email tools. However, IncrediMail is not the best choice for corporate users, who definitely don’t need all the bells and whistles it offers. Since Outlook is arguably the most popular email client in the corporate world, people migrating from IncrediMail most often transfer their IncrediMail mail to its native PST format and that’s where problems usually start. IncrediMail mail is stored in IMM files, which is native to the application and is not directly supported by any other email programs on the market. Furthermore, some organizations and professionals do not use Outlook or use it in combination with other clients, which creates an obvious need for an efficient strategy of converting Incredimail mail to formats that can be easily imported into popular (and not so popular) email solutions. This article explains the process of converting and transferring IncrediMail mail to intermediate formats and, ultimately, to destination applications such as Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook Express and even Apple Mail or Mac Mail.
