This topic could fit any of several places, but since it's quite specific to MS-Outlook I thought I'd post it here. I have a potential client who is transitioning from 8-year-old HP laptops to the Macbook Pro. As far as getting data generically over from one platform to another I think I'm good. However, my past experiences with trying to "direct port" Outlook data, and the last one is some years ago, have been problematic, at best, and never crossed platforms.
If anyone has tips & tricks, advice, or step-by-step instructions for doing an MS-Outlook data port from PC to Mac such that one can then fire up Outlook on the Mac and have all prior information "simply appear" in a "plug-n-play" manner I'd love to hear it.
Since all Outlook data is located in the .pst file for a given user (if memory serves) getting that copied over should be easy. It's then a matter of getting Outlook to use that file, with all the e-mail messages, accounts, contacts, etc., that I'm not quite sure about.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you have to offer.
