How do I convert Notes from .msg to .pwi so I can export to mobile device?

Microsoft Mobile 5.0 doesn't support *.msg files, so my Outlook Notes can't be exported to my mobile device. However, it supports the legacy *.pwi format, so if I could somehow convert my Outlook Notes to pwi, i could simply drag and drop or ActiveSync my notes.

I tried everywhere, and couldn't find a way. I even got OneNote but couldn't do it.

ANyone knows?

The problem that you're experiencing stems from the fact that there's no Notes app on the Windows Powered Smartphones. But no need to worry, there are a couple of 3rd party applications that can solve the problem.
