Question How to transfer MS outlook messages to Linux


I've been using MS office outlook to get my messages from all of my accounts, and now I have over 1500 messages, and I want to tranfer them to any of the E-mail handelling software (like Evolution). Can this be done and how?

You could also look at the website for the software you wish to use.

I was able to import my contacts from Outlook by exporting them as a .csv file. However, when I tried this with calendar and tasks, they all got dumped into my contacts folder which was quite a mess. Has anyone had any luck using .csv files to import tasks and calendars?
