Convert Eudora MBX emails into Microsoft Outlook PST format

I am currently considering migrating from Eudora 7.0 to Outlook 2007 because Eudora is no longer supported and I am concerned about restoring all emails from Eudora. I considered changing over to the new and advanced Outlook where I can have my email more tightly integrated with my calendar, to-do-list etc. So, my questions are:

  • How to move Eudora emails to Outlook? Is there any manual way to do it?
  • What is the best way to migrate? I've been looking for 3rd party solutions, but I'm not sure how useful they would be for the price.

NOTE : This manual process can convert Eudora emails into MS Outlook format but there is no guaranty that all emails will be save with the original formatting and it also takes so much time and import folder by folder separately and there is lot of data loss possibility. The most important thing, both applications Eudora and Outlook must be installed in same machine otherwise you wouldn’t be able to perform the manual process to convert Eudora emails into Outlook.
