    My iMac is less than a week old and I'm kicking myself for not jumping sooner!!!

    What's the best way to move Outlook 2007 from my PC to Outlook 2011 on my Mac?

    I can move the PSTs very easily, but how to I get the other Outlook stuff (accounts, organize colors, rules/filters, dictionary, etc.)?

    A lot of that will not migrate. Contacts you can export and import. Cal you can archive into a PST and import I think. Other than that, I am not sure you can migrate the rest.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'll wait a bit, just in case someone has built a third party app to migrate...

    As a disgruntled owner of a Mac on which I've tried to use Outlook 2011, my recommendation for how to migrate is to NOT migrate, at least not if you have any need to sync your schedule or contact with other entities such as Google Calendar.

    I'm still using Outlook 2007 on the PC side of my computer, since that program actually syncs with Google.
