    Is there anyway to take a windows xp outlook .pst file and import it into entourage so that all the calendars, contacts and emails are all imported right in? Whenever I try to directly import it it says file is corrupted and stuff. Is there anyway to do this?

    Thanks for your help guys

    I had the same problem, and I tried this program (O2M) which converts the .pst files to .mboxes which Entourage can read. It is a tedious process but it works. I believe its 10 dollars. But worth it. Here is a link to a blog that talks about it;

    O2M can be found here;

    In the Blog, one of the comments pointed to this program which looks interesting. I may try the Demo.

    If you still have access to the PC it came from, it's a lot easier just to export to a CSV file. Only caveats: make sure there's no commas in any of the fields (the notes field being the big one to look out for), and it doesn't get certain information (I forget what, but I think it says when you do the export). Overall, a lot simpler though as long as you don't have any commas to worry about.
