Looking For Export Program, Outlook to Evolution


Hey Gang:

I am still making the transition from Windows XP Pro to SuSE 9.0. I want to export my .pst file (contrains all my personal folders, calanders, and contacts) to a format that Evolution, which I like a lot, can use. Does anyone have any solutions?

Cheers

There may be such a program. I don't know. One thing that would work, though, is to set an IMAP server. Copy your Outlook messages into that. Then 'pick them up' with Evolution.

Yeah that may solve my email problem (though when i read your post i was like "what?") but it doesn't solve my calandar or contact issues. Thank you for your input though!

Cheers

Quasi-Solution

Hey, I was doing some research and found a quasi-solution to my problem. There is a program that does some of what I was looking for (exporting Outlook data to Evolution format) however it is extremely temp'mental with Outlook XP. The program is called "Outport" and from what I understand it works perfectly with Outlook 2000 and earlier but like I said is quirky and temp'mental at best with Outlook XP and newer at best.

Cheers
