This would work for most mail clients, but Outlook is a non-standard IMAP client. The mail it stores on an IMAP server is only plain-text with an attachment called winmail.dat -- a binary file which in turn includes the original mail and its attachments. This means that the imap method of importing mail only works if you don't need rich text or attachments. Sad but true.
