MS Outlook 2007 to MacBookPro email

I am about to attempt to move my emails, folders, etc from MS Outlook 2007 to my MacBook Pro.  Question:  I have partitioned the hard drive on the MacBook and am having very good luck running windows programs on it.  Would it maybe be easier to install MSOutlook 2007 over to the Macbook then via an external hard drive, transfer the .pst file OR should I give up on Outlook and somehow get those emails over in to the Mail program on the Mac?   I know that is a long, complicated question but I wanted to see if anyone had any experience trying to do this

If you have Office for Mac 2011, then Outlook is included in this bundle.  Simply copy your PST file to the Mac, and you'll have the exact same contents in all your folders as you did on the PC.

I don't though, I have IWork which has Pages '09, Numbers '09 and Keynote '09.   I do have a copy of Outlook 2007 that I bought and have a license for though- think that will work for me?

OK I have MS Outlook 2007 installed on the bootcamp (windows) side of my partitioned mac hard drive and have the .pst file copied but can't seem to figure out where to put it.   Right now it is sitting on an external hard drive that is attached to the mac.  I need it on the mac someplace.  Any ideas?
