Entourage is the email client in Microsoft Office for Mac from Office 2001 to Office 2008, and was replaced by Outlook in Office for Mac 2011. Unlike Outlook on a PC, which stores e-mail and other program files in a PST file, Entourage stores all program data in a database. You can import your Entourage e-mails to Apple Mail by manually exporting the mail folders as MBOX files. Alternatively, you can directly import Entourage e-mail into Apple Mail.
