You can use Parallels to load Windows programs in a virtual environment.

I loaded XP into my Macbook's Boot Camp and from there installed Parallels into the Mac. When I started Parallels the first time, I installed XP into it from Boot Camp and it works great in the Convergence Mode (both Windows and Mac on the same desktop). You can drag files from one to the other, etc. I have both Office 2007 (with Outlook) and Windows 2008 (Mac version) and save files in either.

BTW, I installed Word 2007 into the virtual XP and can read Outlook directly from it while in Convergence mode. So you don't need to convert if you do that kind of virtual set-up.

Good luck, Noel
