    Re: Convering Outlook email (msg) (2003 SP2)

    Do you still have access to the hard disk of the old computer? If so, retrieve your .pst file. This file contains all your e-mail messages, appointments etc. You can import e-mails from the .pst file into Outlook Express, then drag and drop them into a Windows Explorer folder. Transfer the resulting .eml files to your Mac, and drag and drop them into Entourage.

    Unfortunately, I don't. Total hard drive failure. I donated it so that the parts can be used at the local school district. Is there any other way to do it?

    Perhaps you can use MsgViewer (freeware/shareware).

    Converting Outlook email (msg) (2003 SP2)

    I had a computer that I knew was dying so I saved my important email messages onto a flash drive (drag and dropped them). My new computer is a Mac with Entourage. Is there anyway to import those? If there is a way, great, ignore the rest of the post.

    If not, that's part one of the question. Part two is converting the messages. I know I can convert the messages by importing them into Outlook Express and then you can drag and drop them straight into Entourage. My question is how exactly do you import the messages into Outlook Express? When I attempted to convert the messages on my work PC, it wanted to import directly from Outlook which wouldn't work since the messages are on the flash drive. Basically I'd like to convert all the messages that are currently stored on my flash drive in .msg format to .dbf format and then dump them into Entourage.

    All help is much appreciated, as always.

    Thanks.
    Pooja
