Hey Everyone,

I am doing a research on migrating to ENTOURAGE from Ms OUTLOOK. I have purchased a Mac Book Pro a month ago and want to get rid of my windows pc. But before that i need to transfer my mails to entourage some how. I have surfed through many forum sites and found that there are tools available for this kind of migration. A few i came to know about are : Pst Converter Pro, Emailchemy, O2M, Pst Exporter and convert my email.

I am a little confused among these tools, and need your help to shed some light on the functioning and which tool is the best to solve my issue. I am losing some precious time so i ask for quick and smart answers.Looking forward for positive replies.
Thank you

Why would you want to migrate from Outlook 2011 which is a solid program to Entourage which is unsupported?

are your emails in exchange server? just plug the server settings into entourage>account settings and you're done.

Such a LOT of people with email migration problems! I wonder if someone is going to offer a totally unnecessary software solution to buy.

I researched for a few days on this topic. Tried each tool, means worked with the trial version of each.

The best came out to be Pst Converter Pro. It worked great on my mac. The positive side of having this tool is you can get it for mac as well as for windows laptop.



I hope this will help other users who are looking for a fast and easy solution to transfer e-mails, contacts and calender events to entourage, vcard files and iCal respectively.



Thank you.
