When I switched from Outlook to Evolution I imported via
Netscape/Mozilla Mail. It needs to be done on Windows however as it uses
some Win32 API calls to parse the mailbox file. Most stuff is good about
importing netscape mail format.

Tom's Hardware wrote a good how-to on this for Linux.  I am assuming
the tool to convert outlook to evolution is in ports.  If not you can
install linux, savi the .pst file to a network share, then install BSD
with evoltion and away you go.

i don't know of clients which support both (not that they don't exist),
however there are tools out there to convert between the formats.  i have
not used any myself, so i cannot speak to the degree of success in 
converting (though i assume its good).

/usr/ports/mail/libpst  is in the tree.  there are also others out there on
sf.net and cpan.org which are simply perl scripts to achieve the same end.

This is a bit of the long way around, but I've done it, so I know it
works.

We set up a temporary IMAP server, and used Outlook to copy all the mail
and folders up to the IMAP server.  Then you can just connect to the IMAP
server with your new mail client to get at all your stuff.

From the Ximian Evolution support knowledge base:
http://support.ximian.com/cgi-bin/ximian.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_sid=yOj4eYfhp_lva=p_faqid=59p_created=995655179p_sp=cF9ncmlkc29ydD0mcF9yb3dfY250PTg1JnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9JnBfcHJvZF9sdmwxPTImcF9wYWdlPTE*p_li=

How do I import my Outlook .pst files into Evolution? 
 
  Question 
  As my previous email client, I used Microsoft Outlook. How can I
import my old email and contacts from Outlook?
 
  Answer 
  Evolution cannot import these files directly into Evolution because
the .pst format is a proprietary format, and access to it requires the
use of the MAPI.DLL library, which can only be read by applications
running in Windows. However, there are two applications that can
convert the files for you: Outport and Mozilla. You will be running
these applications under Windows and we cannot guarantee that they
will work, nor can we support them. You can also export address
information to CSV format and then convert it to a format that
Evolution understands.

To Use Outport:

Another workaround - amplifying a suggestion by another poster.
You're obviously running windows now. Install Mozilla, fire up the mail 
client, do NOT let it become the default mail application, go to tools - 
import and import your outlook mail, and addresses (this only works if 
Outlook is still the default mail application).

Copy the whole mozilla profile - location depends on your version of 
windows to CD or whatever.

Install mozilla on FreeBSD, fire it up (to create the ~/.mozilla tree), 
close it down, copy the folders and files from inside the .slt folder 
from windows to inside the .slt folder in .mozilla/profilename/

Seconded.  This is my preferred method for migrating .pst data.  Only
problem with it is the requirement that you still have Outlook installed
and available.  But it's by far the fastest and cleanest way I know.

Agreed, this is probably the safest method.
Rather than temporary, why not just keep your email on the imap 
server?  That way you can try lots of different email clients, as long 
as they support imap.  's what I do.

 not used any myself, so i cannot speak to the degree of success in 
 converting (though i assume its good).

I recently migrated a friend's e-mail from Outlook [Distress?] to MacOS-X. 
I had a bit of handwork, but basically:

 1) Exported the Outlook info in 'csv' format
 2) Exported a sample address book as csv from my target (maybe the Mac 
mail reader - I don't remember, but anyway it's a system resource in
MacOS-X: one address book seems to fit all clients)
 3) Loaded both into a spreadsheet - probably StarOffice so try OpenOffice
 4) Moved a few fields around so the Outlook export would match the target

NOW:
 5) Saved from the spreadsheet in Data Interchange Format
 6) Slurped the *.dif into the new agent.

There are scripts for much of this, but I was as well off 'by hand' for
this one shot. You may be able to skip some steps depending on your source
and target options.

HTH.
