Easiest method would be to open Outlook express and select file import - netscape communicator (import all messages.)
Then -select (from Outlook Express) - export all messages
to outlook :)

Is this a one time action? Are you going to stop using Netscape? You can add the IMAP server A to your Outlook accounts.

This is IMAP, you can create a new folder on the IMAP server, move the messages you want exported. Then in Outlook, define the proper IMAP account and go to the folder with the 'exported' messages.
