Other than the confusion regarding the registration - hehe - mine now says "Coolutils Giveaway" in red, I give this a thumbs up. It will be nice to archive emails as doc files in a batch mode and then delete them. Several years ago I was plaintiff in a lawsuit and had to print out about 3000 emails for the deposition and court (won :-)). It took me days and days and was a huuuuge pain in the a$$. This would have been well worth buying at the time. Thanks to the developers and GAOTD.

I've been trying all day on two different machines. Both will not activate. The last several times I've tried GAOTD programs I've had similar results. It's not worth getting the emails, it's just a waste of time. It also is bad for the companies offering us their programs; it gives us a negative association. At least GAOTD should address this, it's been going on for a lot of us for quite some time. I'm usually very supportive and forgiving, but I'm about "niced" out.

Don't limit Total Converter to Microsoft Outlook. Few people are going to want to pay for an email client when there is a plethora of free programs and then turn around and pay for a program to archive their email. Cut and paste takes no more steps and the whole process is free.

Open the type of email clients supported by Total Converter and widen the potential market.

I have MS Office Suite 2007, and can copy and paste any email I receive to a Word, or PPT, or Excel document, and from there save as a PDF, among other save options! I've been doing this for years, so I see no need to install this on my machines. It may be a fine piece of software, but I will stick with what I have.

L. Cleveland Major, Copying and pasting the email content isn't quite the same. It's always good to use whatever you find works for you or is easiest. But copying the content into another format through copy/paste will produce largely inferior results for larger numbers of emails as well as the ability to create lots of formats without requiring Office Suite to be installed.

Reply   |   Comment by Simon  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Simon , I understand what you are saying, but I can say without a doubt that my results are consistently good ones. And that goes for nearly all my copy and paste work. The only time it won't work as expected is when the original material is formatted in a way that has to be fixed after the copy and paste has been done. This has never happened with email for me; only when I am doing research and I am taken to a site that has this weird way of formatting their information. I'm not complaining about there chosen way of doing things other than to say it makes things a bit inconvenient. But as I have already stated, I have yet to run into this problem with email.

Reply   |   Comment by L. Cleveland Major  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

L. Cleveland Major,
A suggestion: install a PDF-printer.
Therefor you don't have to copy and paste the text. Just "print" your mail within Outlook.
I have installed on every laptop, that I have used, a PDF printer and every where I could print from any program the contents and at work/home I could print the PDF.
There are several free PDF-printprogam's. DoPDF is one of them and Foxit Reader for PDF have also a printer in it.(they like if you buy the program, but the free one is enough.)

Reply   |   Comment by Ootje  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Ootje, I'm good with what I have. The main thing I do with creating PDF documents is my own art application tutorials. I am in the process of authoring one for Wings 3D 1.5.4 at this time, concerning UV mapping. I am an artist and I believe in sharing my knowledge in and of the applications I use on a regular basis. Word and PowerPoint are both excellent tools for that process, and both can save directly to PDF, as well as many other formats. So as you can see, other software is not needed for what I do. I prefer to do all my authoring work in one or the other application, and taking screenshots to add for visual reference on what is being discussed.

L. Cleveland Major, You wrote
"can copy and paste any email I receive"
It was just a suggestion to work a bit easier for this step(copy/paste). But now I read that a lot of time you already work in Word/Excel/PPT and these program can make PDF.
I often help people and yesterday I helped someone with a PDF. This person first clicked on the link and the PDF opened in a reader and from there it was saved. Just with a right-click with the mouse on the link would save the PDF directly.

Reply   |   Comment by Ootje  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Ootje, Yes that's correct. Even if a person does not have a PDF reader installed, (though I cannot for the life of me understand why they wouldn't when there's a perfectly good one available from Adobe for free), they can still right click on a document and save a pdf to their hard drive.

Well, what do you know, a real goodie showed up today!
Not only did the mail for download come straight away, setup to "user-defined" directory no problem, double-click activate.exe and registration was done. My wonderful Win10 machine led me to my new app in the start menu, so that too was no problem, started the so-called app, which said it's been registered and wanted a restart for completion of process..

Anyway and that is the significant of it, the software is a gem for Outlook users because it fills the gap that Microsoft will never want to nor probably able to bridge, at least not in my lifetime.

So, after such a load of ... lately, I am once again truly and honestly grateful to you at Giveawayoftheday and Cool Utils. Lovely, really, really delighted. Thank you so much :-)

I tested this tool under Windows10 and Outlook2016. Here some observations.
I was not able to start "setup.exe" with administrator rights - usually I'm logged on with a Windows standard user and I start setup exe-files by right clicking and selecting "Start as administrator". But this way I got the error "The client is missing the required rights" (I hope I translated this correct from the actual German text "Dem Client fehlt ein erforderliches Recht."). So I had to promote my user account from standard user to administrator and log off and on again. Then both the installation and activation worked fine. I tried to convert an html mail with embedded screenshots (i. e. the picture of the screenshots shows up within the mail, not as file attachments). And I tried all available formats. Not all of them worked, some worked partially and only one format worked to my full satisfaction:

The following formats didn't work at all, the output only showed an empty page or a page with the text "Page 1" at the top, but nothing else: pdf, xps, tiff, jpg

Xlsx was created, but Excel2016 could not open it.

Docx was created and showed the correct text, but embedded pictures showed up only as pictures with an ugly big red X.

Html, xhtml were created, showed both text and embedded pictures. Only flaw: the embedded pictures were cut off on the right side (as opposed to viewing in Outlook).

Txt worked perfectly fine. Of course it cannot show the embedded pictures, by nature of text files.

Eml was the only format that worked to my full satisfaction. It not only exported both text and embedded pictures, but also regular file attachments! Wonderful! And this is also the reason I will keep this tool - despite the many defects!

Cheers,
Franz Huber from Germany

Registration Problems
After registration by whatever means always close and then reopen the program, this gives it a chance to check if it has been registered.

Reply   |   Comment by Salvia  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Salvia, Correct, or better yet - don't start the program until you've run the Activation executable.

Reply   |   Comment by Simon  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Simon ,
Ta.
True, run setup but do not allowed to open, run activate, now let setup finish and it opens as registered.
I was just trying to make a more general statement; it normally has to re-open the program to check if it is registered.

Someone marked your comment down what can you do when people who don't know what they're talking about mark you down.
It happens all the time now this site is more accessible to mobile users; instead of commenting they just mark people down.
So bad at times rather pointless making comments; as reflected in the number of old regulars who no longer comment.

I have never used outlook nor outlook express. if i want to save an e-mail i use pdf creator to generate a pdf file and if it doesn't succeed to converted several mails at once i convert them seperately and combine them with pdf sam basic. For those where the printer prints the last page with a single footer, change the settings of your printer from A4 (210x297mm) to legal (215,9x355,6)

Simon , I believe he's saying he's smart enough to convert his emails to PDF's without Total Outlook Converter & couldn't use it anyway since he's never had .PST files to begin with and he's telling us how to do it too.

That's right Simon, i could have said nothing but when there are freeware programs able to do similar things and not limited to, in this case .PST files, i just like to mention them. And i wanted to reply to another posting at the same time.

Thanks to you i have looked closer into the matter and if you have windows 10, you can print your mails directly to pdfs by selecting 'microsoft print to pdf' as a virtual printer (already build in into windows 10) http://www.msoutlook.info/question/643

I've run the "activation" file twice, and I've gotten a popup that says "registered," but the program itself (under the "Help" menu) tells me I have yet to enter my registration name, email and registration number. Am I registered or not?

Peggy, I hate to sound the way this is going to sound ..but you have to play with it a little. Open the app ,run the activate.exe file then it should tell you to close the app and reopen to show the app is registered .i had to do that a few times then came up as registered...

Simon ,

Thank you for your help in registering/activating this software. I just tried restarting the PC. No go. I have tried everything I can think of. The app just will not activate. I have activated many programs in the past through GAOTD. I guess this one was not meant to be for me. It looks like something I could really use, too.

Thanks again.

Successfully installed but it does not seem to be activated. I ran Activate.exe many times, both regular and as administrator. And both with Outlook running and Outlook closed (including shutting down the Outlook process in Task Manager). But T.O.C. still does not show any registration code and shows a “Buy Now” button.

This looks like it could be a very useful program, and I want to try it out, but cannot without a successful activation. Can anyone advise me how to do this?

Apparently, some commenters below say it's activated if the Help > About box says "CoolUtils Giveaway." I hope that's correct, but it indicates really bad user interface programming. And it would have been nice if either the publisher or GOTD had replied to the numerous questions about activation and explained the situation.

Jonathan Plutchok,
really bad is the abyssmal understanding of some folks as to how the software gets registered.
No intelligent programmer wants to adapt a one-day giveway to suit such users who stumble over a simple sentence. Hopefully you have no problems in working with Outlook.

Reply   |   Comment by Sigrid.DE  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Sigrid.DE , Giveaway of the Day are the ones who created the activation process for the promotion. If you purchase any CoolUtils product from them directly, the activation process is very different and simple.

Reply   |   Comment by Simon  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Sigrid.DE , I am trying not to take offense at your implication that I have an abysmal understanding of how software gets registered. I have been working for 25+ years in software companies large and small, and ama GOTD user for many years. And I work expertly in Outlook inter alia. Also, I don't know what "simple sentence" you think I stumbled over. To register T.O.C., I followed all the directions carefully, and the usual GOTD practice of running Setup, then Activate, and only then launching the program. The popup box said registration succeeded. So if that's true, the programmers should have made the "Enter Registration Code" option on the Help menu unavailable (grayed out or otherwise), and should have added a "Registered to..." statement in the About window. I am not the only person who was confused because the program gives no clear indication that it is registered. If you actually know anything about intelligent programming, I expect you to agree.

Reply   |   Comment by Plutchok Jonathan  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Plutchok Jonathan,
The text file was the very simple sentence which caused such vast confusion.
I do not have to read very carefully, nor puzzle anything out,
the whole process is what an 8 yr old is easily capable of.
Never mind what YOU expected to find. It says what it says and that is what counts. If you insist on a personal licence number in your name then go and buy. I'm sure Cool Utils would not object.
This particular software is aimed at users with a reasonable degree of intelligence, because a) not for free, b) not particularly innovative or overly user-friendly GUI, c) just one tool within the Microsoft Office Suite.
I decided to subscribe to Office 365 for two reasons, i.e being familiar with the key programs but mostly for the 1 Terabyte cloud space included in the price.
I have no personal licence key for the whole package, I'm auto logged in for convenience and it greets me by my hushand's first name because the credit card is in his name.
So what is your point? Used to be, should be?
The times are not what they used to be and quite frankly GOTD is also not what it used to be.
I just felt sort of irritated by the pointless wails from people who either did not appreciate the usefulness of the software or were so offended at a slight blemish that the rest of the world for sure had to know about it.
But knowing your way around MS OUTLOCK I wonder if you have also stumbled over the missing STORE add-on (icon or whatever) in Office 2016. Not that I was really missing it but a mate of mine questioned me about the greyed-out thing. My first thought was that it may not be automatically activated, however, even 3 curses sent over to Munich (Muenchen) my local Microsoft place, would not make the Store link come alive.
Greyed out or not, hardly worth the drama. One is for free and the other the giveaway with the cloud store. You raise a ticket with Cools and I try my luck with the other company.
My bet lies with you getting an answer and me a link to the Office help files.
Matter solved?

Sigrid.DE, I'm sorry I don't have time to try to understand, much less answer, every point in your rambling and largely incoherent reply. Unlike you, I will try to stay on-topic so I will just say this:
(1) My clearly stated point was that T.O.C. should indicate unambiguously that it is registered.
(2) I wrote my comment to seek help in figuring out if it was registered, not just to complain.
(3) I followed the activation instructions correctly.
(4) I have not upgraded to Office 2016 or Office 365 yet.
(5) I did get a helpful answer from CoolUtils and it appears that T.O.C. is indeed registered.
I now consider the matter closed too.

Very happy! I have .pst files containing mails from a friend who died in a fire and from my Mother who died two years ago. I had used a rough outlook file viewer but it was clunky. This viewer displays all those old mails and more perfectly.

What is the difference between this "Giveaway Coolutils Outlook Viewer" and the "Free Coolutils Outlook Viewer" at Download.com?

I have run activate.exe numerous times and get a message saying "Thank you for registering. Please restart the program". When I open the program, it still has the option to enter the registration code/buy a license. Just going to have to assume the program is registered.

Mike,

My experience also... installed without a hiccup, activation was a little slow but did activate without needing to contact anyone.

The interface was not that far different from the Outlook I use (v2013), so was pleased (contrary to what someone else posted regarding distaste abut the UI).

I did only test the "doc" output, so my testing was limited, but I would count this as a win for a free non-cost app addition.

I have a Windows 10 64b machine and can report the following:
> This software succeeded in converting to DOC - Impressive
> This software did NOT succeed in converting to PDF - even after a restart. (All documents have only only one page which is blank - Page 1 in header and today's date in footer) - Disappointing
> This software did NOT succeed in converting to XLS - even after a restart. (excel 2016 says they are all corrupt) - Disappointing

I did not attempt any other conversions as I am unlikely to use them.

Ferdinando, You should contact their support team to find out what the issue is there.

Ferdinando, I made a Cameyo portable of the giveawayoftheday on a virtual XP 32 and ran that portable on a real W10 64 desktop. I tested it on an old .pst-file of a project and it produced a perfect single pdf containing all the mails of that project.

So I am satified with this software. Since I retired I do not have a complete MS Office, so to read my old .pst-files I have to rely on software like that was given away today.

Their total mail converter would be more useful to more people

Go ahead and vote me down because I'm going off topic:
Speaking from experience, Coolutils is a company with a bunch of GREAT products that generally work very well.
So WHY aren't they offering a discount code at GOTD today for their other items?
It wouldn't need to be much (10-25%) and would guarantee more sales than this giveaway alone. A lot of people don't use Outlook, but I bet a lot could use some of their other (cool) utilities.
GOTD gets a lot of eyeballs, it just seems like such a missed opportunity.

goo, CoolUtils have only appeared on GOTD once before. I would presume they're getting a feel for how the promotions go before considering further promotions.

Installed OK to W10 64bit.

The interface isn't very nice at all and looks too cluttered, without the ability to see mails easily, so I would advise the dev to perhaps look at designing it to look a little similar to Outlook.

It picked up all my Outlook accounts but for some odd reason, also picked up 40 non existent ones that it labelled Outlook1 all the way to Outlook40.

However, when it comes to actual conversion, it is a doddle and for all the output formats that I tried (DOC, PDF, XPS, XLS, TIFF, JPG) it did so immediately and with all formatting in place and just as I would expect to see.

So a thumbs up for the key functionality but is in need of a UI redesign.

The system requirements on this GOTD page says:
System Requirements:
Windows 2000/ 2003/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10

Publisher:
Coolutils

If it supports early OS as far back as Windows 2000, then why was XP specifically unsupported?
Very strange.

ricohflex, .

Just another serious issues with XPs system or something...

ricohflex,
Installed and ran no problems in XP.
From what I can gather if it runs okay in 2000 it should run in XP.

ricohflex, Windows XP is definitely supported it's just missed from the list. All Windows versions since 2000 are supported except ME.

insomnia sat ',
Another serious issue??
Not supporting XP means that they are no longer issuing patches regarding security etc (unless you modify registry).
The only serious issue this leaves is that XP is more vulnerable to hacking and that a few programs use functions that are not available in XP and they will not run.

ricohflex, 2003 (or server 2003) is the same equivalent to Windows XP, so XP is supported, they just put it in the server form instead.

insomnia sat ', Bill Gates left Microsoft when Vista was released. He has nothing to do with Microsoft today, not other than a temporary advisor on and off, but he isn't involved in any decisions anymore.

Watching the video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1-FWz15ZQ0 ) it looks very handy for people with PST files. I think I'll give it a go.

Rather strangely it includes your Calendar and Contacts, but not the Notes, which as they are simple text files seems an extremely annoying omission (especially as iTunes trashed my Notes when iOS9 came out so getting at old versions is handy).

I opened a PST file, looked around and closed the program again, then compared the file with a copy and it was still identical.

It automatically opens the last PST file you had opened when you start it, or if not available the main Outlook file. You can open another file at this point, but if you close the application while it's processing the file it takes a long time for it to actually go away, I think it completes the opening first (I actually killed the process after 5 minutes waiting, the Window goes away immediately).

Rather worryingly (??) it says "Please Close Outlook" when starting, but carries on regardless (also regardless of whether you are opening Outlook's PST file or an old one). Is there an issue there or not?

Reply   |   Comment by JohnL  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

JohnL, Outlook locks the PST file when in use, so if you don't close it then there's a possibility that Outlook tries to update the file and the converter won't immediately show those updates.

JohnL, They take suggestions for new features - drop them an email.
