I have a tar GZipped (tgz) file I need to import into outlook

This answer was rated:

I have a tar GZipped (tgz) file I need to import into outlook 2007.
I currently have Zimbra as my email client and would like to have my sent, received emails.
The only format zimbra allows as an export is tgz

First you need to uncompress this file..

7-Zip is a free file archiver that runs on Windows and can open .tar.gz files. Download and install 7-Zip, and you will be able to open up your .tar.gz file.

If 7-Zip does not launch when you double-click the .tar.gz file, ensure that 7-Zip is set to handle these types of files by default.

  • Open up 7-Zip
  • Click Tools → Options
  • Go to the “System” tab.
  • Make sure “tar” and “gz” are checked off.
  • Click “OK”.

Now go back and try to open your .tar.gz file. 7-Zip will start up and decompress the archive.

Then import the required files from the uncompressed folder into the outlook 7..

Good Luck
