A product sold on a lie - Outlook 2011 doesn't work; update 1/21/2011: they fixed the Outlook import problem!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Office Mac Home and Business 2011 - 1MAC/1User (Disc Version) (DVD-ROM)
After researching and reading all the reviews, I decided to go with this poorly reviewed product because of the pst import feature into Outlook 2011.
Amazon states under product features: "Outlook for Mac 2011: Outlook 2011 lets you see your calendar from within your e-mail, read related e-mails in a single thread, import PST files ..."
MS is even more emphatic in how easy it is to import pst files (including email, contacts and calendar).
I purchased the product solely for the supposed ease of transferring Outlook pst. I installed MS Office 2011 and all went fine until I tried to import the pst file - this crashed Outlook and I cannot get Outlook back. MS has suggested all the usual stuff (delete database, re-install MS Office, etc.) and nothing works.
I am enraged that MS can sell a product with a clear lie.
It is incredible that after using my Mac for a week without any problem I started having problems about 5 minutes after I installed MS Office (no problems with Excel or Word, but the sole purpose of this purchase was Outlook and it's import pst function).
Update 1/21/2011 - Microsoft returned my money and, at the same time as they were processing the refund, they fixed the problem. I therefore have bought the product again; mostly because it now allows me to easily move 9 years of emails into my Mac (warning: emails in the "sent" folder ended up losing the "to" part, but that was only a few so if you file them in another folder then it didn't seem to happen).

I just purchased this too....I love excel which is why I am getting it. But when you go back to a MS product after using Mac (although I have been having Lion problems and the first problem I have ever had) it reminds you of why you started using Mac in the first place doesn't it? ;-)
