This is a common problem and there are many solutions present for it.


Follow the steps and you will be able to import your mails easily outlook 2011
2. create a local folder
3. drag all your local emails to the folder we have created
4. then drag the local folder we have created to the lion's desktop (once it will finish, we'll have a .mbox file)
5. open mail
6. In Mail, choose File > Import Mailboxes -> choose .mbox file


You can use Exchange or IMAP accounts to have all the files on the
server, and then in Mail, but you would need significant storage space
there if you have a lot of e-mails.


You can use software approach to solve your problem.There are various softwares available online for this problem. One I know is Olm converter pro.
You can find it here: Convert mails (olm files) to Apple Mail

Thank you

Apple online store provided me the solution for migrating emails from outlook 2011 to mac mail. Olm converter pro is the tool.
Every email was transferred successfully, the data was retained and also the folder hierarchy was saved by this tool.
Highly impressed

Thanks for help.
