Evolution to Outlook/Windows

Does anyone know how I can export my Evolution mail/contacts/calendar to use in Outlook XP (or any other windows mail program)?

I know all the files are stored in /evolution/local/* but Outlook XP, Outlook Express, Eudora 6, Netscape mail, etc won't import any of the files in the evolution/local/* folders.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Please no flames for needing to use Outlook.

I use Evolution, and to my knowledge, the only way to do this is at the folder level. I have never tested this but this is the only way I believe exists:
To export messages from an Evolution folder:

* Open the folder in Evolution.
* Select Edit | Select All from the menu.
* Now select File | Save As... from the menu.
* Choose the location and file name where you want to save your emails.
o You can give the file a .mbx extension so it's clear that it is a mbox file.
* Click OK.

Good Luck,
