    Install Thunderbird on the Windows system. Import your mail from Outlook. Install Thunderbird on the Mac system. Copy the contents of your Thunderbird profile from the Windows system to the Mac system. Export/save your mail stores out into a format (mbox perhaps?) that Entourage can read.

    Is your mail on exchange?

    Give Entourage can't handle ,pst files, you need to export your mail unless you are on an exchange server. If you are on a server, simply set up an exchange account in outlook and it will synch just fine (except for locally stored mail).

    There is a program that will export Outlook mail in a format that Entourage can handle - this url has some info:

    Right now, there's not an easy way to do it. I wrote a blog post about various methods that are available to you: moving from Outlook to Entourage.

    Outlook:Mac 2011, which comes out later this year, will support the import of PST files from Outlook for Windows. I know it doesn't help you now, but you will be able to get everything directly soon.
