Migrating from Eudora to Outlook 2007

Here are the steps needed to import your e-mails and address book from Eudora into Outlook 2007.
1. Launch Windows Explorer (right click on the My Computer icon and then left click on Explore or hold down the Windows key + E) and go to the folder that holds your Eudora mailboxes.
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Qualcomm\Eudora
The Application Data directory is a hidden directory that you may or may not be able to see. If you cannot see this directory you can type in “\application data” onto the path in the address bar.
2.Copy the following files to C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora folder: (All are required)
Any file ending in .mbx (In.mbx, Out.mbx, Trash.mbx, etc)
Any file ending in .toc (In.toc, Out.toc, Trash.toc, etc)
3. After copying the files to the Eudora directory in Program Files go ahead and launch Outlook 2007 and if needed configure the application.
4.Once Outlook 2007 has launched and the account has been set up, click on “Personal Folders” on the left side of the screen under “Mail Folders”. After selecting the folder, click on File then “Import and Export…”

5.Then on the Import and Export Wizard window, select “Import Internet Mail and Addresses” and click Next.

6.On the Outlook Import Tool window, make sure “Eudora Pro…” is selected in the top pane and the check boxes in front of “Import Mail” and “Import Address Book” below the pane are checked. Then click Next.

7.On the Import Addresses window, select “Replace duplicates with items imported” and click Finish.

8.Assuming everything was done correctly, you should now see the Importing Process window.

9.When the process is done, an Import Summary will display. Click OK.

You have now imported your Eudora emails and address book into Outlook 2007.
