Import a .pst file into Entourage 2008

Can someone tell me if it is possible to import a .pst file from Office
(Outlook) 2007 into Entourage 2008? I'm running Parallel VM and want to move
all my personal email folders, etc. into Office 2008 for MAC now that it's
here otherwise, I won't be able to switch over.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Rick!

Not directly, no. But have a look at these posts on The Entourage Help
Blog for an idea
<http://blog.entourage.mvps.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/dsmross/managed-mt/mt-search.cgi?tag=.pst files&blog_id=14>.

Also, have a look at The Entourage Help Page's cross-platform section
<http://entourage.mvps.org/cross_platform/win_mac.html>.

Hope this helps!

WTF is wrong with Microsoft?
Here we have two Microsoft products: Outlook and Entourage and we still cannot directly import files from one to another.....

I need to be able to easily import and export PST files from Mac to Windows.

Can't the Mac Business Unit just add this piece of functionality??? Or can't Microsoft just buy out a company that is able to integrate the two products?

Why is there no Outlook for Mac? Why do we have to have a totally separate product???

Can you use the pst file at all, on a MAC? Like using the outlook express to import?

Not really. The format is really different.

Adding to that...

The format is 100% Outlook. It's proprietary. No other E-mail
application uses PST files.

Expecting other E-mail applications to use PST files is like expecting
the Mac to have a Start button.

I am no expert in this sort of problems. As I read your threads I did some research of my own and came out with the following results:-

An application named Pst Converter Pro seems to be good in dealing with this kind of problems. You can have a look at its features here: www.pstconverterpro.com/

There are other applications also available online.

I also found other threads having similar discussions as your problem, one of them being:-

I hope this information helps you solve your problem. Thank you.
