Migrating M$ Outlook 2000 data to Evolution

What is this about?

So you are using Linux and like it - but still Outlook is quite handy and apart from this holds all your archived data? That were my problems at least until I tried Evolution (e.g. from here). Now about migrating the data: Of course Outlook has only binary formats, but there is lots of help on the net. Still it took me one night to collect the right infos and scripts which I hope to spare you. There are these sections:

Migrating e-mail folders

With slight changes I followed the information provided here.

Migrating contacts

Using Thorsten Roggendorf's Ruby script csv2vcard this was not too hard.

Getting birthday reminders

Using the python script by Stefan Goetz helped a lot. It needed small changes, so download it here.

I do not guarantee the correctness/adequateness of the data and the information given on this side and thus deny any responsibility for your use of it.
