Import Eudora 4.0 Address Book into Outlook 98

I have a client that is converting from Eudora 4.0 Pro to Outlook 98.

We have searched the menu items for an import function for the address book and messages, but couldn't find anything.

Is this possible?
Where is the function?

Thanks

Outlook Express 5 for the Mac has an import command as the 6th item in the file menu (or if you rather the first item in the 3rd group). Select Import from an application,click the right arrow, select Qualcomm Eudora (any bersion), click the right arrow, select the things you want imported, click the right arrow, choose the eudora folder.

That will get everyhing into Outlook Express, which is not the same as Outlook 98. The files should be compatible, though.

My first question might be: why on earth are you going from Eudora to OE?

That is a wonderful question!  I only wish I had a satisfactory answer.

This is part of an overall shift in company policy to change from a Mac environment (why?) to a PC environment (sic!), but they have to be able to match protocols and formats with their clients.

They have bought into the whole NT network environment setup with Microsoft Exchange server for Internet access, etc. etc. etc.

Oh brother....They dont know about the OE virus/trojan horse threat? You SHOULD be able to configure eudora to get mail from the NT server.

Unfortunately the NT server configuration is a fait accompli.

Any thoughts on the import?

Dunno but there might be an Export in eudora.

Outlook Express can import Eudora. I would bet that you can use Express to build the files that Outlook can then read/import...

The question is not whether it can be done, because I agree with you that it can be done.

The question is where.  We can't find the commands in the menu to perform the import task.

That is about where I would expect to find the command, but it isn't there in Outlook 98.

I will get back to my client and recheck everything.

Thanks for the help.

I will close the question and award the points.
