    Outlook for MAC stores data in .olm format wher as Outlook for Windows store data in pst format. And there is no way to import olm file to Outlook for Windows. For this you have to convert your olm files into pst format with some tool and then import pst file into outlook. Searching google for olm to pst converter tool i got link to this tool Kernel for OLM to PST converter which says that using this tool you can convert olm file into pst file.

    i use outlook at work, and frequently need to move my mail to my mac, which is running mountain lion os x. i basically export any new emails from my PC using 8Convert (, then import it directly into Apple Mail.

    i haven't had to move mail back the other way (from my mac back to outlook). let me know if you find a good solution for that....

    One of the most critical iPhone accessories will be a case
    or screen protector. The beauty of the iPhone is the crystal clear screen, but
    it will also be prone to scratches making your iPhone less attractive and make
    you unhappy every time you look at your now depreciated device.

    The easiest option probably is to use an IMAP or Exchange service. If that's not possible Thunderbird is the best option as @ha14:disqus already suggested. 

    Some detailed guides:

    Outlook to Apple Mail (using Thunderbird) 

    Apple Mail to Outlook (via emlx or Outlook Import Wizard) 

    Apple Mail to Outlook (using EML to PST Converter)
