When I open the OLM in a hex editor I can see the XML fields and some of the data is there such as contacts and some calendar events but none of the messages - its seems like just some of the structure. Somehow the database tool is not bringing in the email messages.

What OS is installed on BOTH macs? These may have to match
What version of Outlook 2011 are you using? You will want to make sure they both match (Outlook Dropdown - About Outlook - 14.1.4 is the most recent release)

What happened to Box 1? If its still in working order why not just do an OLM export from Outlook? That may work better...

Once I get the OS/Version information I can attempt to do it on my mac lab setup. See if I run into any snags to work through.
