Windows -> Linux - what about outlook.pst ??


Making the step from Windows XP to Linux is indeed a pleasant experience. However, backward compatibility is a living nightmare.

As an example I have 4 years worth of contacts, old emails and appointments in Outlook 2003 PST files that I would like to import in KMail (or Thunderbird or Evolution, I'll change Linux application anyday to anything that lets me import my outlook documents)

Are there any applications, tricks or similar that can transfer my calendar, contacts and emails from Outlook to Linux ?

I haven't tried it myself, but this may be of some use. Outlook 2003 may be a problem, but worth a look...

Also, ReadPST (libpst):

Both claim to convert various Outlook formats to mbox. From there, just about anything should import it.

Good luck

I wonder if it would work to install the Win TBird, import to that, then try to move/copy the file to the Linux version.
