I'm sorry you have had so many problems. I can assure you that
Diane's suggestions are not too hard and with the purchase of the
Little Machines software the process, while a bit time consuming, is
not difficult. I would definitely say that it is no more challenging
that what you are going through with software upgrades and migrations.
Gmail is not an option for me since I have my own website and domain
for my email. While Entourage 2008 is far from perfect, it does have
some features that Outlook does not and in general it does the job.
In my perfect world the Apple Mail product would be able to do
everything that Outlook can do and that would be my perfect solution.
My biggest regret in migrating to Mac's is that I have not been able
to be 100% Apple or Universal Binary software. I still have to use
other products such as Office for Mac and Entourage.
One other possible option for you however is something that I did for
one client of mine. Their configuration for their Exchange Server was
so convoluted that I could not get it to work on Entourage no matter
how I tried. As it turns out the problem was not my software, but
their VPN tunnel software which does not have a version for Mac OS/X
I ended up installing VM Ware Fusion and Outlook 2007 on top of
Vista. It works like a charm. Of course you don't have to run
Vista. VM Fusion will operate almost any other operating system
including Ubuntu, Linux, XP Pro, etc. VM Fusion is an awesome product
and works beautifully. I highly recommend it if you are adamantly
opposed to making all of the changes to adapt to the Mac environment.

I have to share my experience with moving PST files from the PC to MAC, from
Outlook 2003 to Entourage 2008.
I had problems, and Diane here made some suggestions. They were too hard, so
I decided to keep my windows laptop as an email machine, and remote desktop
to it from the MAC.
First, I had to upgrade my laptop from Windows XP Home to Pro. The upgrade
failed due to a license key error, and I had to reformat the hard drive. I
then reinstalled Outlook 2003 on the XP machine. Then when I tried to import
my PST backup, it said 'incompatible version'.
So, Microsoft managed to screw my laptop, and my outlook data even with a
backaup, and I never could import it to Entourage on the MAC.
Now I'm moving my address data to google, using only IMAP accounts, and I'm
completely moving all my business data off of Microsoft technologies. Enough
is enough. I don't trust Microsoft with my data anymore. Every version of
Outlook has been incompatible with the previous, to mention nothing of the
MAC vs PC fiasco, and the fact that Entourage is not really compatible with
Exchange, or outlook, or anything that I can tell.
