Windows outlook not showing message body for PST created in Mac OS

I have converted a pst from mbox in Mac OS. I am opening this pst in Windows outlook. Outlook is not able to show messages body. Message body is blank.

I have debugged the converted pst using aspose dll and it shows messages body.

I have used below apis for mbox to pst conversion.


I have observed the issue shared by you and request you to please share the working sample code, source MBOX file and output PST. Please also specify that for which message the body is not appearing. We will be able to proceed further with investigation on our end on provision of requested information. I am also assuming that you are using Aspose.Email 19.9.

OS: MAC OS Mojave 10.14.3 vitual machine on Windows10
Development environment: Dot Net C# with Visual studio 2019 for MAC

Sample Function :

public void MBoxToPst()
PersonalStorage PSObj = null;
FolderInfo folderInfo = null;
long lTotSize = 0;
foreach (string fileName in inputList)
string strDestFile = string.Concat(fileName, “.pst”);
PSObj = PersonalStorage.Create(strDestFile, FileFormatVersion.Unicode);
folderInfo = PSObj.RootFolder;
MboxrdStorageReader MBoxSRObj = null;
FileStream fileStreamObj = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
MBoxSRObj = new MboxrdStorageReader(fileStreamObj, false);
int iTotalMailCount = MBoxSRObj.GetTotalItemsCount();
int iExportedMailCount = 0;
MailMessage mailMessageObj;
mailMessageObj = MBoxSRObj.ReadNextMessage();
while (mailMessageObj != null)
lTotSize += MBoxSRObj.CurrentDataSize;
MapiMessage mapiMessageObj = MapiMessage.FromMailMessage(mailMessageObj,
string strEntryID = folderInfo.AddMessage(mapiMessageObj);
mailMessageObj = MBoxSRObj.ReadNextMessage();
}//end of while
}//end of foreach
if (PSObj != null)
}//end of func
