Transfer Outlook files to Mac [Entourage]

An acquaintance is asking how to transfer files from MS Outlook on PC to MS Entourage on Mac.

The point is that Outlook .pst files can’t be read by Entourage, which uses .mbox files. Somewhere along the line the files need to be fed through a separate filter which will convert them. Instead of spend a couple of hours figuring out which option for doing this manually is best, I might just pay $10.00 for O2M. Aside from its low cost, it seems this app will save a lot of time. It’s also recommended by Apple.

Want a free alternative? O’Reilly Publishing offers a tutorial on moving files from Outlook to Entourage. Some of the best recommendations are in the comments. One guy recommends using Thunderbird to make the transition work.
