trouble importing vcards from Outlook
Well, I finally made the switch and I received my brand new iBook just the other day. The setup seems to be going smoothly, but I'm having trouble importing my vcards from Outlook on my old machine (Windows 98) to Mail. I don't have a cd-rom on the PC, but I do have .mac. I tried copying my contacts into the .mac folder on the PC, and I tried e-mailing the vcards to myself. Each time, I wind up with .msg's on the mac side. I have a feeling I'm missing something. Can anyone offer any words of wisdom? Thanks!

You are going to import into Address Book, not Mail. Mail uses Address Book for it's Contacts. Open Address Book, then choose File > Import. Choose vCard and select the vCards you want to import, or choose LDIF, and select an LDIF file to import.

vCards are the standard, but since when does Microsoft play by the rules? Go and download Outpod which will let you make your Outlook contacts into vCard. You will end up with all your contacts in 1 vCard--you get that onto your Mac and drop it into Address Book.
