    I have not transferred Outlook data from PC to CrApple.....and I see that the new Outlook in Office 2010 for Mac now supports importing from PSTs.
    What if you run over the import process again..and instead of highlighting the personal folders at the top of the tree...just highlight in the inbox and the source..and destination..(and put checkmark for sub folders)....and import the inbox only?

    And make sure she doesn't have any rules for filtering (like...show only NEW e-mails or something like that).

    Does the Outlook for Mac have the same choice of "Folder List" view? It's not on by default, so I always hit that when setting up Outlook for people.

    Is this coming from an Outlook to Exchange setup? Or POP3?

    You can just grab her old PST and copy it to a thumb drive or something...instead of doing the "export" process. That will cut your steps (and time) in 1/2.

    Nothing I can think of comes to mind...perhaps the import function is still being de-bugged?
    Found this thread..which states there's a problem importing e-mail from a PST which previously had e-mails imported from Outlook express.

    Also in that link is another link to Microsoft site regarding an issue

    Got it, somebody either MS or apple cant handle very large files , 1 GB or bigger.... when i broke it down to smaller file there was no problem at all getting it over and imported

    Ahh cool. It must be the Apple version of Outlook that can't handle larger PSTs..I've migrated PST waaaaay larger than 1 gig before.

    I recently imported very large Windows Outlook 2007 pst files into MAC Outlook. I ran into similar issues as you. The solution for me was:

    0. uninstall MAC Office 2011.

    1. install Office 2011 on the MAC.

    2. install all 3 MAC Outlook updates available from MS in this order:
    • Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 (14.1.0
    • Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.2.3 Update
    • Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 14.2.4 Update

    3. import the pst no glitches.

    One of the updates fixes importing errors.

    No one has any right to force data on you
