going from Outlook tot Mail or Entourage

in Mac Software edited January 2014

After six long years on windows (at the office) I can finally go back to the Mac (at the same office). Just waiting for Steve to do his magic at MacWorld...

My main problem right now is transferring my email from PC to Mac. I'm using Outlook, and that keeps your mail in one big file. Is there some way to export the complete structure of my Outlook content, including folders, to either Mail or Entourage?

If not, then I'll have to keep on using Outlook via Parallels on my Mac. But I'm sure you will all understand that this is not a solution that I would favor.



P.S.: I searched the forum, but couldn't find a real answer to my question. If I overlooked an important thread, then please post the link here - thanks!

    There are a few ways to do it. I once came across a program you can buy that will do the transfer. Can't remember the name, sorry. Another option is to setup your email account as IMAP, transfer your emails to the IMAP account and then logon with your mac and transfer the emails to your mac that way.

    You can also try this app: http://outport.sourceforge.net/

    If you are running an Exchange server, you can dump all your mail on the server, and Mail.app happens to be able to connect to Exchange servers (not many other programs can!).

    Anyway, you'll notice that Mail doesn't suck. Searching is easy, it has a good junk email checker (rather than none at all), and it doesn't bog down the system all the time!
