I earlier research being able to import data from Microsoft's Outlook 2003 for Windows XP into Entourage 2004 for Mac. I now plan to use the built in applications, ical, contacts, mail, etc. Is there a way of importing data into these? If necessary can I export to Outlook 2003 again?

Actually it's not as straightforward as it should be. Microsoft obviously don't think people would ever want to leave Windows and Outlook behind and then use Entourage. You can import into Mail from Outlook, but it messes up your folders and attachments (which is nice).
I did the switch and here's how. Install Thunderbird on your PC. Import from Outlook to Thunderbird and then find your mail file (under Settings/username/Application Data etc) and find a file called "mail" - also you might want to do this for "sent" too.
Add the extension .mbox to the file and then save it to CD or Zip drive or whatever, so you can move it to your mac.
On the Mac, drag each .mbox icon (i.e. each folder you used in Outlook) from the desktop to Entourage or its icon in the Dock, and click Import on the dialog box that appears.
A guide is here. http://www.riches.com.au/articles/ex...-entourage.htm
Entourage is actually quite neat and does some things that Outlook cannot.
