It would be a good idea to look for some Apple scripts:

Good luck it won't be easy.

go to www.mozilla.com

download thunderbird for pc. install it. import all the outlook express mailboxes into thunderbird.

do a search for .mbox on your pc. you'll find some which should be in your thunderbird directory. copy those files to your mac. when you're in mail, it'll have an option to import it and it can read those files.

it works. trust me. i did it. and it should retain all your info.

I just went through the steps listed on

http://www.riches.com.au/articles/ex...-entourage.htm

and imported Outlook into Mozilla mail and then was able to rename the files with a .mbox extension and transfer them to a Mac and import them into Entourage without any problem.

Hope this helps
