How do I import Mac Office 2011 .olp email file to a .PST file to import into Office 2010

-      I have a MacBook running Office 2011 for MAC. I need to get all email, contacts and calendar entries onto a new Windows 7 laptop running Office 2010

From the MacBook, I exported the mailbox to an .olp file (I assume this is the Mac version of the "Office for Mac 2011").

I need to import this to a PST file so that I can import this into Office 2010 on a Windows 7 laptop

I cant fine much information about this. Most posts I find are "how to import Mac Mail into Office for Mac 2011

- I saw one link that requires you to download a product for conversion
- If I can at least get all my contacts off the Mac office 2011, I'll worry about the email later

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Export your contacts to a CSV and then import them into Windows

The file you have is OLM not OLP I think.

You have to use something like this OLM to PST Converter
http://olmtopstconverterpro.com/

It's not FREE but you can test it out and if it works then pay the $$

Otherwise it can be a slow manual process - Microsoft do not support PST on OSX Outlook so the conversion process from OSX to Windows is painful.

I'm guessing you're dealing with local folders.

It might be simpler, albeit time consuming if your upload speed is slow, to:
Sign up to a free IMAP email service, such as google or yahoo mail.
Connect to the IMAP server with Outlook.
Copy the files to the new email account.

Then, from the windows side:
Sign on to the IMAP service with outlook.
Copy the files to your local folders.

I have had no luck with exporting the contacts which is the most important piece the user needs now. When I import the txt file that the mac outlook creates, it imports a total mess. I had remove them all

serialband. that may work well but like you stated, very time consuming. I would have to recreate his mega folder structure on the new Windows Outlook

I'm going to try downloading the 2nd tool that was recommended and see if I can make this work

If you have a local IMAP server, that would speed things up.  It really depends on how much data he has.

eoinosullivan, I purchased this program and it worked well. Their chat support was helpful and was very easy to follow. the http://olmtopstconverterpro.com/ worked perfectly.

I'm sure the first tool recommended tool "http://applemailtopst.com/download-free-trial-applemail-to-pst-converter/ " recommended by would have worked as well.

The othe program would NOT work as it is clearly for converting Apple Mail to Outlook and not for Outlook Mac to Outlook Windows. It also doesn't handle contacts or calendars as apple mail doesn't support that.
