Just wanted to give a bit of feedback on Outport. I had a play with it
today (I'm currently transferring a company from a mixture of Outlook
2003 and Outlook Express to SME Server with Thunderbird clients via IMAP.
I found that Thunderbird would happily transfer mail and contacts from
Outlook without any problems but it wouldn't budge when trying to
convert Calender & Task items to Thunderbird with the Lightning Add-On
So after much messing around I tried Outpost. It worked straight away
and converted the Calender items into individual iCal files (not ideal
but it certainly saves re-entering two years worth of Calender items).
It also has the option to export to Evolution files too so hopefully it
would do what you need to transfer from Outlook to Evolution.
