    Moving emails from Entourage to Outlook: How???


    by aliceinwonderland ·

    Hysterical female seeks help on moving her emails from Mac OS X Entourage to Win XP Outlook (2003).

    Odd to be moving in this direction, I know, but it happens.

    The problem is, from Entourage, I can only export the files as .mbox whereas in Outlook, I can only import from .pst and Eudora/Outlook Express.

    Pleeease, does anyone know the solution to this?

      Have you considered using am intermediary? Such as:
      Can you synchronize a palm device with Entourage and then sync that to Outlook?
      Can you move the Entourage email to another account like a yahoo account? Then move from that account to Outlook?

        Hi! Thanks for your reply. I tried looking at Yahoo, GMails etc but they do not have the function. For palm etc, I’ve long discarded them for good old paper and pen that allows me to scribble as I wish… 😛

        I finally managed to figure a way out. It’s manual; involves copying and pasting emails into folders, moving them onto my PC, and then re-mailing the emails as attachments so that I can pull them into my Outlook folders just so I can have them in their splendid glory, attachments and all. But it works!

        Thank goodness, I have only 5 months worth of emails to move! Phew!

          Open Entourage, forward all email to yourself (or the applicable account). Then open Outlook and get all you forwared mail.

          The biggest problem is that you will loose the dates.
