8) Now “Conversion Progress” sheet slides into the view which displays details of current item being processed as well as overall progress as described in Conversion Progress.
7) Once the conversion is completed you will see conversion completion report. A detailed conversion report is also saved on your “Desktop” with name “PST Conversion Report ##.txt” where ## represents the date and time when conversion started.

11) Microsoft Entourage will start importing content from selected archive. Please note if Archive’s size is big say 600 MB, Microsoft Entourage may take it’s time to import the content from archive.
12) After the import is complete you will see the migrated mail folders as shown in Fig. 3. You can reorganize your folder hierarchy using drag and drop in Microsoft Entourage.

14) Your all calendar events are imported into Entourage. When you open a certain calendar event, you will see a note at the end of the event’s description, which refers to a certain “Mail Item” in “Calendar_References” folder. Additional information such as description in rich text format and attachments belonging to calendar events are saved in a folder named as “Calendar_References” as shown in following Fig. 4.
