I have a client using Google Apps for business.  They are connecting to the Gmail servers via IMAP using Apple Mail.  They want to move to Office 365 and use Outlook 2011.  What is the best method/process for converting the mail from the Apple Mail client to Outlook 2011?  I have Googled to my fingers hurt and there doesn't appear to be a direct way to import.

Unless they have archived stuff offline (low probability) you don't need to import anything, all the mail is still sitting on the Server. Just connect outlook to gmail and it will sync.

Another option (if the above doesn't work) is to add the Office 365 account to Apple Mail then drag/drop the mail from the Gmail account into the Office 365 account and let it push everything up to the cloud and then it will download it into Outlook 2011.

Excellent!  I knew it would because I had to do exactly that for a new customer just last week.

Glad it worked for you too.
