    Hey gang...not trying to plug our products here, but i have a really cool work around if you are interested:

    I run VMware FUSION on my macbook pro.$79

    I run Outlook in my Windows XP Virtual machine.

    I run Entourage as my primary Mac Mail client.

    I exported my entire PST (2.2gb) from my older machine
    saved to usb drive
    plugged usb drive into my macbook
    fired up my VMware Virtual Machine
    Fired up OUTLOOK in my VM
    mounted the USB Drive
    File>OPEN>outlook data file
    pointed to the .pst file
    voila, it opens
    it takes an hour or so, but it imports the entire pst
    then, sync with our exchange server
    when you open up your Entourage, it too syncs with your exchange server
    all your folders, messages, contacts, etc pop into your Mac Mail client

    HOWEVER: this does assume you are receiving mail by and through an exchange server, however, the use of a virtual machine as a medium saved the day

    hope that helps.

      I know this is an old post but I am hoping that someone will read and reply...

      I am in exactly this situation, where importing using other methods are impractical because the user in question has over 3000 folders and subfolders and PST file is some 17GB in size.

      My question is, how do you force Outlook 2007 to upload/sync all mail to the Exchange server?

      Prior to now, mail was deleted off the server as it was received on the user's local machine, as he is by far the highest volume user in the office.

      One of the reasons we're switching him to Entourage is that his giant PST file was slowing Outlook to a crawl and hopes are that Entourage with different file formats will not suffer as badly from his high-volume usage.
