*[*LibPST*|http://www.five-ten-sg.com/libpst/]* \- a linux library to convert PST files to mbox


*Evaluation*
After trying several options, we determined that there are no open-source solutions for converting these file formats into MBox or to EML.

Several commercial solutions exist and until someone creates a solution that is open-source, we recommend that the commercial solutions be used (with caution) if a conversion to MBox (or EML) format is required.

There are  both open source linux tools and several commercial solutions. The right fit will depend upon the workflow. The linux solution is easily integrated into scripts. We recommend the commercial solutions, with caution, if a conversion to MBox (or EML) format is required and the user needs a friendly GUI or doesn't have access to linux.
