The Microsoft Importer for Lotus cc:Mail Archives, CCMARCH.EXE, is used to import data from Lotus cc:Mail archive (.CCA) files into an Exchange public folder or personal store (.PST) file. In addition, CCMARCH.EXE can also import cc:Mail addresses from a private directory (PRIVDIR.INI) to a personal address book (.PAB) file or to the Outlook Contacts folder.

CCMARCH.EXE is a wizard-based tool that steps you through the import process. Before using it, I recommend reading its documentation, especially the compiled HTML help (.CHM) files included with it, which describe the tool's underlying concepts as well as how to use the tool.
