Importing MS OE to Mac Mail

Hi There
My friend was using MS Outlook Express on Mac OS 9 on a dual-boot iMac - but it now won't run.
I would like to help him import his old mail and address book into Mac Mail under Mac OS X Puma.
Can anyone tell me what files I need to be looking for; and some (simple) instructions for importing.
On an old Windows PC, I have found a whole load of .dbx files which contain emails and a .wab file which is the address book; but I don't know how different the set up is under Mac.
It has occurred to me that we haven't tried OE under Puma - I will check.:dummy:

I have the same problem, just having switched to Mac.
Is there a program for converting Outlook.WAB files (imported from my PC)into something Mac can understand?
QUOTE Thanks
