Entourage to PST for Mac & Win Outlook
Do not worry. Below is the correct and professional approach to Entourage to PST that you need.
First, you may be wondering PST, especially if you are new to such processes of data transferring. PST is a file used in Outlook Windows for storing emails and other items, and it is also used for exporting, importing, and archiving the data. By converting Entourage to PST, you could move the contents into Windows Outlook.
There are few manual tactics at your disposal. One of the most common ones that you will see frequently is this:
Use a dummy email account. Configure the account on both clients (Entourage and Outlook). Using IMAP data-syncing protocol, migrate the data internally using an email server as an intermediary.
You can migrate one or two folders, at max, but more than that, the IMAP manual approach fails. There are multiple issues with it and the major one is incomplete transfer of all the details. And for the users concerned with productivity, they will find this manual approach even worse.
