AIUI, the best route to get Outlook mail to something useable is:

1. Install Netscape/Mozilla Suite on Windows machine
2. Import Outlook mail
3. Export or take Netscape/Mozilla mail directory over to *nix
4. Open up in Netscape/Mozilla on *nix or use directly as mbox

Some Google searching may yield a more detailed recipe.
