There should be an export command in the File menu, and you should be able to tell it to use a standard mail archive format.

You should be able to point Mail to the location of the export, or of the Outlook database and then it'll import using the Import Mailboxes command from the File menu.

Very easy......drag and drop mail items from Outlook 2011 to the desktop. Drag and drop them into Entourage. Can do batch-wise also i.e, select multiple items, drag them all to the desktop, then drag them all to Entourage

The original problem was not "solved".....the OP resorted to forwarding all messages to himself, when the drag and drop solution I posted was much easier, resulted in no change in the From: field, and nobody had posted it. Besides, since Outlook 2011 is the current version, I don't see why it is an "old" thread. And O2011 doesn't export in any format that can be opened by Entourage. It does a good job of moving mail from Outlook for the PC to Outlook 2011, but that's about it.

Just trying to help with a problem that should not hve been marked "solved" because it wasn't. And I'll bet the more people that try O2011 the more there will be people wanting to go back to Entourage, and would hve had the same problem.

take care,
Paul
