Why connect an Outlook Archive (PST file) to Curiosity?

Outlook archives (PST files) are a useful way to save contacts, calendars, and emails for old accounts. However, they can be hard to open and search.

Connecting a PST file with Curiosity lets you:
View the emails / contacts / calendar without needing to import in Outlook
Use the PST file on Mac without converting it to a different format
Search the PST file contents with the same search you use for everything else

🪪 This feature requires a Curiosity Pro license.
