Move Tasks from Mac computer to Outlook 2010


My user is using Entourage 2008 for Mac and how can I transfer all his task created on the Mac computer to Outlook 2010?  Then it can save to my Exchange 2010 server.

1) Entourage can export your data as

    Text files, tab-delimited files (you can then export to Excel and create a .csv file.)
    Entourage archive (.rge) files (not in Entourage X, 2001)

2) You can drag files out as individual contacts, messages or folders (MBOX), notes, tasks, calendar events. (X, 2004, 2008)

3) You can use scripts to export your data. (X, 2004, 2008)

    Paul Berkowitz's shareware scripts $20 Export-Import gets everything
    Export folders scripts (these get subfolders too) (freeware)
    Exchange users can move their messages to folders "On my computer" using the AutoArchive script.

4) There are options used by PC users to bring their data over into Entourage, like IMAP accounts and online calendar options. Check out the options on the "Convert Mail from Windows to Mac" Page.

To clarify .. can you please answer the following

1. Entourage 2008 on OSX --> migrate to Outlook 2010 on Windows or Outlook 2011 which is the OSX version?

2. How is Entourage 2008 currently getting email?  Is it POP, IMAP, Exchange 2003/2008?

I am moving task from Entourage 2008 on OSX to Outlook 2010 on Windows.  Because I want to see my task either when I use OWA.

Entourage 2008 is getting email via Exchange.

It isn't easy to move tasks out of Entourage. You can copy the list of tasks using BBEdit or textwrangler as described here

Entourage cannot sync Tasks with Exchange but you can sync ToDo items

The only other option I can think of is to sync calendars and tasks with iCal and then use iCal to export .ics file which is a good exchange format to import into outlook and other programs.
