    Hi Guys,

    I am using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7. How do you transfer the Outlook email data, including the inbox folders, to Mac mail?
    I just bough a Macbook Pro and I can't lose any of my email data.
    Thank you for you help!

    This would be a good opportunity to use virtualization. Install Windows via Parallels or VMWare Fusion and install Office/Outlook there. Then fire up the virtual machine any time you need to check your mail. It might be less hassle than trying to port over an entire Outlook e-mail box, especially if said box is large in size.

    Get an Exchange account hosted somewhere, import into exchange and then use Mail with Exchange. Then you can copy everything over to a non Exchange account.

    Alternatively replace the word Exchange everywhere with Gmail.

    Would it be easier to transfer to Mac version of Outlook than transferring to Apple mail?
