I found this. I'm not too sure how much effort you want to put into it. I know it used to be a snap to get messages from Netscape 4.7 into Outlook Express, however, I've never had an inclination to use Outlook so I haven't researched it.

Also . . . from Microsoft.

SYMPTOMS
You cannot import your Netscape 6 address book into Outlook 2002 because there is not an available converter.

CAUSE
This behavior is by design.

WORKAROUND
Use the following steps to work around this behavior:
1. Install an earlier version of Netscape. (For example, Netscape 4.77.)
2. In the older version of Netscape, import the address book from Netscape 6.
3. Use the information in the following article to complete the import from Netscape 4.5 and later:

Hmmmm, guess they haven't provided one yet.

Hope something helps you out.
