Importing settings from Office Outlook 2007 Windows to Office Outlook 2011 Mac

Recently, my brother's Windows computer suffered a crash - luckily he was keeping up with his backups for outlook (pst files to the rescue...sort of). Instead of going out and getting another Windows laptop he decided to get a Macbook Pro with Office 2011.

The issue though is the fact when he imports his pst files into Outlook, it does not seem to import his email settings - one particular email server he deals with is in Honk Kong, and for some reason their tech offices are closed for two weeks, his email worked fine under Windows and he was hoping to just use the pst file to 'restore/setup' his mac so he can just be on his marry way.

And since he has multiple pst files (backing up the data folder like he did on his dead Windows machine) he feels he is constantly importing the wrong pst file. Not to mention that he finds it troublesome to arrange his inbox by account which he says is not as friendly as 2007 or 2010 on Windows. That's another issue all together, but mainly... is there a right way to import a .pst file from windows to mac office 2011 to get it back up to snuff with all your settings intact? Contacts transferred fine so did the calendar events, just not the settings or for that matter the folders.

I am pretty sure you cannot transfer settings with a PST. He will just have to wait to get the settings.

In addition, do not ever try to find an ical setting in Outlook 2011, it doesn't support ical feeds
