Does anyone know of a free utility or method of converting a .pst file from MS-Outlook into a file that can be used with Netscape Mail? (The .pst file has all of your e-mail messages and personal folders etc.)

I think this same question came up some time ago on this page. (look around) I think that there was no way to do it.  You will probably need to resend all messages to yourself.

 Here's a possible answer for you....


         Use outlook to send your mail archives to yourself.
        Use Netscape's Pop retrieval to get your mail back.
        You will need to create your new folders. you can then            drag your mail to the appropriate folders.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

I understand that I can resend the mail to myself and re-catalogue it. However, I have thousands of e-mails that I need to keep. There is an excellent utility to do what I'm looking for by ComAxis but it costs $295 for a 50 user version (the smallest they sell). I brought my mailbox from a repvious company to my new company which employs 8 people. Therefore, I'm the only one who needs to do this so I was hoping for a free utility. I'm sorry, I should have been more specific with the posting.

You may just want to set up Outlook and incorporate all your email in to use as refrence.  Then forward, or Copy/Paste into the new mail system when needed.

Alternatively , if the .pst format is listed at Microsofts technical site you could write a script in perl that could do the trick.

I had this exact same problem myself and was unable to find a solution (without spending the big bucks like you mentioned).

I even emailed the Netscape development team and asked them!  Maybe now that the Netscape source is public domain, someone will come up with a plugin...

I ended up keeping my Outlook folder archived and simply referring to it whenever I needed.  Sorry I couldn't help more...

Have you tried the function in Comunicator 4.5 to import mail?

ok, in Netscape 4.08 you go to MESSENGER for the EMAIL, FILE, IMPORT, then choose
OUTLOOK 97/98. and Import it to you INBOX for NETSCAPE. that should do it.

I would like to credit netmage. Could you please add a comment soI can credit you (or tell me how I can while istal is the last commentor). I had to download and test 4.5 to determine it worked and it does. I am after all on vacation... Istal's response might work but Netmage was in first and I have no desire to downgrade to 4.08 from 4.5 now.
