How to export emails from Outlook to Gmail?

I have been looking into how I could transfer my email from Outlook to Gmail, but have yet to find a way of doing this.

Scott Hanselman has a way of redirecting email from Yahoo and Hotmail to Gmail, but that is not what I am looking for really.

Gmail help has a way of importing your contacts from Outlook to Gmail to you can find here. I tried it and it worked. But no information on how to import Outlook messages.

Google GMail Loader (GML) can import your existing email into GMail, but only from the mbox format. So I tried this tool to convert my current .PST file and I think that worked. But I never got Google GMail Loader to actually send any mail. It just seems to stall by some reason.

Is there anyone that have successfully done this?

UPDATE! There is a much esier way of doing this now.

Expression Engine

Been working on Expression Engine lately and it seems like a very interesting CMS to work further on. The best thing about it is that it is very design frinedly and that is something we have been looking for in a very long time.
