Re: MAC outlook 2011 to Windows outlook - Help Please

Is it just for email, or calendars, contacts too?

For email there's a long way round.

1. Create a gmail account
2. Configure mac to access this account via IMAP in outlook
3. Drap and drop your entire email archive to it from within outlook
4. Wait for it to complete
5. Wait some more
6. When complete, configure outlook on pc to access gmail
7. Create new .pst on PC
8. Drag and drop from gmail to .pst
9. Repeat steps 4 ad 5

The advantage of this is that the gmail effectively acts as a backup copy. It will take bloody ages though, and could get problematic if gmail starts to get glitchy.

Remember to use IMAP when configuring gmail on both machines. Don't use POP3.
