I purchased a new iMac and Office for Mac 2011.  I have years of Outlook email history to transfer over, which the folks at the Apple Store said would work, no problem.  That hasn't been the case.  None of my .pst files from Outlook (2003, for PC) will transfer correctly.  It seems that about half the email is missing.  Have tried importing just small pst files with less than 100 emails, that won't work either.  I've seen this problem discussed on multiple forums, but haven't seen a consensus developing as to the solution.  I've tried creating a new identity in Office for Mac 2011, importing there, exporting to a .olm file, and reimporting to my main identity, and that didn't work either.  Each solution has thousands of missing emails, but never the same ones.  I can find no pattern, relating to whether there were attachments, older emails, new emails, etc.


I know this is being discussed in various forums, but I'd like to ask whether anyone has any new ideas?  Or, it would be great to know if ANYONE has successfully been able to complete this kind of transfer to Outlook for Mac 2011, or whether it's happening to everyone who tries.
