    Email Program to Import Outlook 2000 .PST

    I recently purchased another computer for my own purposes. Since I don't have another license for Microsoft Office and it isn't feasible to obtain one at this time, I haven't installed it on this computer. However since I need to check my email on it, I have setup everything on it as normal. However now I wish to import my old emails from Outlook 2000.

    Nothing I have tried can import them. I have tried Outlook Express 6, Eudora (newest one which requires Outlook to be installed), and Ximian Evolution (linux email program). Does anyone know of an application that can do this?

    Have a look at this: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/.../importing.asp

    Messages from other e-mail programs. Including Netscape and Eudora. You can also import messages from many Microsoft products, such as Outlook or older versions of Outlook Express.
    although the instructions don't seem to cover importing messages from any specific software package.

    A search on google also pulled this up: http://www.mailnavigator.com/reading...pst_files.html - this may be of some use to you.

    Hope this helps a little
    ZOO

    Thanks, both those require that Outlook be installed.

    could you not simply install outlook, use something like Eudora to get your emails and then remove it again. Not an ideal solution, but if you really need those emails...

    I could, I just didn't want the extra garbage that is installed. It would be fine if I was running Office but I don't need 100 MB of DLL's if I am not. I'll figure out a solution.

    Wayne, why don't you go from Outlook and Export to Excel. Excel export to CSV? Going off the top but it seems to me that any email program, at least OE should import CSV format...

    If I have Outlook installed, I can import directly into Outlook Express. I just wanted to do it on the new computer without installing Outlook at all as all my data has already been installed on it and the other computer is being setup for my children. I just hate installing unneeded software on the system.

    Right, but I'm talking about on your old PC where Outlook IS installed.

    Or install Eudora on the PC that currently has Outlook and import the emails into Eudora, convert them to Eudora's fomat and un-install Eudora. Eudora can't possibly be as huge as installing Outlook...
