You have nothing to lose if you try. I advice that you download Mozilla
Thunderbird (~8 MB) which is the most recent and reliable NS-family mail
client. Import your mail from Outlook and appraise the results. If happy,
move Thunderbird folders to Linux, which is guaranteed to preserve the
structure fully. Remember that "Import "will _not_ affect Outlook, so if
you are unhappy with the outcome you can just uninstall Thunderbird from
Windows. No changes done.
