Hi Sean,

The easy answer is NO.
The complicated answer is "everything is possible under the sky".
Maybe yes, if you ask this question on ms-outlook-users at microsoft.com ;)

You will ask them to direct you to a tool that takes a .dbx file, splits
it into individual e-mails, in a format that is not proprietary to
Microshit and then you can FTP those back to the server, placing them
either in ~smurphy/Maildir/new/ or in /var/mail/smurphy - I guess you
already see how much time you will waste using Microshit products!
