There is no direct way to import a PST file into Microsoft Entourage and Apple Mail so you need to convert your Outlook (or PST) content into an appropriate format which these programs understand. Many people have suggested few free workarounds in blogs out there. Few of them are easy to follow but eventually you will find your emails not converted properly for example inappropriate attachments and unorganized mail folder hierarchy with loss of non-english content. Few others have suggested transferring your mails by routing through email server but actually it will take days to transfer a big PST file (such as 2 GB) with a lots of effort. Then it will take a lot more efforts to reorganize your thousand of mails in a folder hierarchy similar to the source Outlook or PST files. So what is an easy and reliable way to migrate Outlook content to these applications?
Our answer is “PST Converter Pro”. It is a powerful email migration tool which helps you migrating your Outlook and PST content to Microsoft Entourage, Apple Mail, Apple Address Book, Apple iCal and other applications. It’s fast! Transfer your thousands of emails in few minutes. It’s easy! One click conversion utility. It’s reliable! Preserve email folder hierarchy and attachments with Unicode Content.
MBOX file format is most commonly used industry standard “mail box” file format. It can contain zero or more email messages. Many email applications (on Windows as well as Mac) support import from MBOX files whereas PST file format is Outlook Specific file format. So if you want to transfer your mails from Outlook to these applications (such as Microsoft Entourage and Apple Mail etc.) you should convert emails from Outlook to MBOX (or PST to MBOX).
“vCard” is the most commonly used format for storing directory information. Most of Address Book applications can import vCard (*.vcf) files. PST Converter Pro helps you to easily convert your Address Books from Outlook or PST files to standard vCard files. Please consult documentation of target applications to know about how to import vCard files into it.
“iCalendar” is the most commonly used format for storing calendar and scheduling information. Most of the Calendar applications can import an iCalendar (*.ics) file.

Yes! Outlook (or PST) Folder structure is maintained during conversion and you will find your mails organized in same the way as Outlook (or PST).
Yes! PST Converter Pro can handle all possible sizes of PST Files. We have successfully converted PST files up to size ~25 GB during testing and it can handle more than that!!! However it can not be guaranteed that target application will be able to handle a huge archive file or MBOX file successfully
When you run our software in demo mode, it converts only 10 items from each email/contact/calendar folder so resulting Entourage Archive or MBOX files will be relatively small in size. Demo mode is only restricted to convert 10 items from each folder and no other restriction is placed on it.
Yes! Contact photos will be preserved during conversion.
Outlook Calendar Events can have rich text content as well as various kind of attachments but these things cannot be directly included inside a standard iCalendar (“*.ics”) file format. So “PST Converter Pro” provides you a smart solution to ensure no data loss by additionally converting all calendar events to “*.mbox” or “*.eml” depending on your choice. When you open any calendar event, you can see a note appended at the end of the event’s description which refers to a certain “Mail Item” in a certain Calendar References folder. Additional information such as description in rich text format and attachments belonging to calendar events are saved in this folder. You can find this folder inside imported mails in Entourage or Apple Mail.
Unfortunately current version of PST Converter Pro can not convert Outlook "Tasks" and “Notes”. We are really sorry about it. When we launched this product it was not possible for us to implement some features (Tasks/Notes/Journal/"Contact Attachments" etc) due to a short time frame. We have tried to address basic requirement of most of the people but we care about you and know that it is really important for many people to migrate "Tasks/notes/Journals" etc. It will be implemented very soon.
Current version of PST Converter Pro does not support conversion from Outlook for Mac 2011 to Apple Mail or to PST. We are really sorry about it. We are receiving multiple requests and working hard to implement support for the same. This is in the wish list and it will be implemented very soon.
