Try the following:


   1.  Transfer the .pst file to your Macintosh computer.
   2.  On the Outlook for Mac File menu, click Import.
   3.  Click Outlook Data File, and then click the right arrow.
   4.  Select Outlook for Windows Data File, and then click the right arrow.
   5. Locate the data file on your computer, and then click Import.
   6.  When the import process is complete, click Done.

Please note that Outlook for Mac can only import Unicode-based PST files. If the PST file is ANSI-formatted the Mac can't import it.

Outlook on OSX does not use PST files to store email and other contacts/tasks/etc.  The data is stored in a combination of database and file system in a folder inside each users /users/USERNAME/Documents/Microsoft User Data.

If you have a PST taken from a Windows computer you can IMPORT the PST into Outlook 2011.  You simply select the Import PST command in the file menu and select the PST file on the Hard Drive ... a full description on the microsoft site here

Please read our replies .. you CANNOT add a PST into Outlook on OSX the same as on Outlook on Windows .. you must IMPORT it as instructed.

The instructions are quite clear.  If you're having a problem understanding please provide more informations on the version of OSX and what is not working for you.

I feel the responses by myself and eoinosullivan answer the question exactly.

The poster wanted to know how to use PST files on a MAC computer.

We've explained that you can't natively use PST files on a MAC and they need to be imported into the mail application (even given instructions on how to do this).

Just because the psoter can't udnerstand/follow these instructions doesn't change the fact that the question has actually been answered.
