    So i'm helping my mom to move all her mails that she saved on her ibm laptop to the old mbp that i passed on to her.... is there a way i can completely dub all the e-mails that are downloaded and the contact lists to mac's entourage? It would be good if someone can provide me instructions from 0 - 10 starting with the windows side....

    Thanks
    Frank

    Contacts:
    1. In Windows Live Mail, go to Tools -> Contacts -> File -> Export -> Comma Separate Values. Enter a name for your file (such as mycontacts.csv).
    2. Copy this file to your Mac somehow. If I were doing this, I'd probably use my USB thumb drive.
    3. In Entourage, go to File -> Import -> Import from a tab- or comma-delimited file.

    Mail:
    The easiest way is to drag the mail messages out of Windows Live Mail and onto her desktop (I'd create a new folder on the desktop and drag them in there so that they're all in one place). This creates .eml files, which Entourage can read. Copy the .eml files to your Mac and drag them into Entourage.

    Regards,
    Nadyne.
