The first attempt to migrate data from my old Outlook configuration to Mac failed. I was too impatient and simply tried to export data from Outlook (File -> Import and Export… -> Export to a file) in one of the Comma Separated Values formats presented, just to later import the files on Mac. Neither Calendar nor Address Book did not understand the CSV files properly, and failed with various and strange error messages.
For the second attempt I decided to concentrate on Calendar and be more diligent. So I discovered that the preferred calendar transfer format is the iCalendar format (.ics), apparently well supported by both Microsoft and Apple.
