I finally decided to switch from PC to Mac, and everything went smoothly except porting the email. I tried various different ways of getting mail out of Outlook's .pst files and into Apple's Mail format. I even tried downloading ThunderBird, importing Outlook, finding the T-bird mail files in my profile directories, relabeling them as .mbox files, importing them into Entourage in order to import them into Mail. Well, even that didn't work. Then I found this sweet little program, which for just ten bucks on the barrel did it all lickety-split, even retaining attachments, etc. This is THE way to move from Outlook to Mail.

The only problem with this software is that it doesn't work the other way around. I wish I had not had to migrate back to Outlook but it happened and it was much more difficult going back from Mac (from Entourage rather than Mail) than it had been migrating from Outlook to Mail using this application.
