UCS: Importing MS Outlook 2011 and Entourage 2008 Data into UCS

Use the following steps to import your MS Outlook 2011 and Entourage 2008 data into UCS. Entourage users skip to step 3.

NOTE: This is a workaround for using UCS and Outlook 2011 for MAC. The workaround will preserve the received date and time and marks all messages as unread.

  1. Left click and drag folders/Inbox from Outlook 2011 to the desktop. This will create an .mbox file
  2. Close Outlook 2011
  3. Open Mail.app
  4. Click on File
  5. Select Import Mailboxes
  6. Choose either "Microsoft Entourage" or "Files in mbox format" (Select the later option if you are importing your Outlook 2011 mbox file from step 1)
  7. Setup an IMAP UCS Account in Mail.app using the directions found on KB Article #1646
  8. Left click and drag folders/Inbox from import into the appropriate location in Mail.app
