migrating email


Im migrating a laptop from win xp to linux. I dont know yet what distro am I going to install on it. I ran knoppix on it in order to see if it recognize all the hardware. It was amazing, everything was detected and configured automatically.

Im going to migrate just documents and some other stuff including mail, address book, etc. The email program that is using now is Microsoft Outlook.

So, straight to the point . Does anyone knows a linux program able to import Microsoft Outlook data??

Thumbs up

Thank you guys!

The sourceforge libpst project worked just fine. It coverted the pst file into a mbox file.

Also evolution did it, thank you Nakkaya
