Switching to Mac: what about Outlook?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My father is about to make the switch to Mac.
His only problem is that he has a lot of stuff on Microsoft Outlook.
He uses it for emails but also for contacts (lots of them), calendars and notes.
What are his options to keep doing what he does?
And also, how to make sure he does not loose data?
He also happens to have an iPhone and needs to synchronize that stuff.

Any advices?

I don't know anything about Macs and neither does he...

Thanks.

Nathan

There is a guide here to help out:

The data will need to go into the Mail, Address Book apps etc for syncing.

I'm not sure if Entourage syncs up too but it may be worthwhile using that instead of Mail and comes with the Office for Mac software that has to be bought separately.

Entourage 2004/2008 sync just fine through MobileMe. That said, I much prefer the Apple triumvirate of Mail/iCal/Address Book over Microsoft's monolithic Entourage 2008.
