    For the Outlook Express folders try DbxConv. This is a utility which is
    designed to convert Mail (not news) folders from Outlook Express DBX
    folders to standard MBX files importable by almost any mail program.  
    Pegasus Mail can read these *.MBX files directly, you simply point at the
    directory containing the MBX files using the "Add mailbox to list".
    http://people.freenet.de/ukrebs/dbxconv.html

    For the Outlook folder there is a utility called PM2MSN32.exe from Martin
    Ireland that can convert the Outlook folders to Pegasus Mail message files.   
    PM2MSM32 is a specialized 32bit Mapi client that interfaces directly with
    Microsoft MsExchange/Outlook (or any other Mapi mail server).  It extracts
    the content of the InBox to individual text files that can be imported to other
    mail systems such as Pegasus Mail.  In the case of Pegasus Mail it puts
    CNM files into the new mail directory and then you can put these into a
    separate folder.  http://www3.telus.net/public/irelam/

    For Eudora or Netscape MBX type folders you can use "Add mailbox to list to
    point at the directory containing the *.MBX files.  You can also use Mail
    System Converter to convert to and from a these and a few other mail
    programs. http://www.interguru.com/mailconv.htm or the latest version is
    always available from http://www.dragon-it.co.uk/pegasus.htm
