    Am looking for the same thing myself.

    Have a feeling that exporting to a file from outlook, and importing that into entourage on the mac will work, but have no idea what filetype etc..

    Please someone help us.

    It can also be transfererd to apple's mailprogram Mail. I just wanna get my mails over..

    sorry

    I'm not 100%, but I was trying to do this myself, and after a lot of searching, was left with the impression that such support just doesn't exist. One would think that two MS programs could talk to each other, but they can't.

    Yeah, MS is stupid, and even their own Mac e-mail product doesn't import Outlook's format. Just use Outlook2Mac as mentioned above. I've heard good things.

    I transferred my contacts from W2K Outlook to Entourage 2004. Export from Outlook into a *.csv file (a file accessible in Excel), and Entourage should recognize that file for an import.

    As far as mail and calendar, I had no luck transferring that. Perhaps the link above will help.

    Gordy, I have been wondering if that will work. I'm helping one of my client companies to move a fair number of desktops from Windows to Mac, and this kind of migration is necessary (they don't use a centralized mail server at the moment--don't ask!).

    Thanks; we're going to try this.

    I tried it a while back and it works :)

    Outlook2mac also works fine , just slightly more complicated :)

    Good luck with the move :)

    This didn't work for me.

    the .pst file isn't a outlook 2001 for mac .pst file and therefore the tool wouldn't read it.

    Or so it seems.....
