Thanks for the good info. I found out a workaround. Besides the Entourage designation (like pst to OL), an rge is a macintosh bundle that can also viewable through mac's file explorer. within an rge there are .mbox (messages), ics (calendar entries), and vcf (contact) files.....which can all be copied onto a windows machine etc. i would look into the script, but i found a good work around. Thanks for the information!
