MS in their infinite wisdom didn't always make their mailbox formats cross platform. They still dont. In most cases you have to find  3rd party converters to convert the PST files.

You may wish to consider using a product like emailchemy: "Emailchemy by Weird Kid Software reads email from the proprietary formats of popular email applications and converts it to standard, portable formats that any application can use. Emailchemy 1.2 supports Eudora (Mac and Win), Netscape (Mac and Win), Mozilla, PowerTalk, Claris Emailer, Outlook Express for Windows and Macintosh, and QuickMail Pro. Versions are available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux/UNIX."

I haven't tried it myself yet, but it looks promising as far as what you want to do.
