Importing Netscape Messenger 4.6 Mail to Outlook 2000

Now that my company has standardized on Outlook 2000, I'd like to get all my addresses, mail, and folders from Netscape Messenger 4.6 to Outlook 2000. I tried Outlook's Import/Export menu option, but it says nothing was converted (0 addresses, 0 messages). I'm assuming Outlook needs to find Netscape's messages in the default Netscape install directory, but I installed both Netscape and Office into custom directories. Is there any way to do this importing of Netscape messenger mail into Outlook, either via some utilitiy from Tucows or WinFiles or other sources, or by putting the Netscape Users directory in a place where Outlook expects to find it? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

You might also want to try using Outlook Express (MSIMN.EXE) to import the messages from Netscape then export them to Outlook 2000.
