Outlook


Outlook is Microsoft’s (in)famous e-mail client, which is closely coupled to Exchange. Despite several promises, its Mac OS X counterpart, Entourage, isn’t half as functional.

Outlook 11 (or 2003) was one of the first e-mail clients to sport search folders (a feature soon replicated across the board).

Migration Mar 9 PST Import Tool for Entourage For the 2004 edition and for old Outlook 2001 (for Mac) files, so your mileage may vary.
Mar 6 libpst (old version) a library and set of CLI tools that can read PST files (there’s a migration HOWTO for those of you not afraid of using the command-line on the Mac). Version 0.6.43 works fine for me with MacPorts and ./configure --without-python.
