This is a real tough one at the moment. As it stands there is no way that any
web client will be able to read your groupware items (or even plain mails) if
they have been synchronized from a Outlook PST file with for example 
the Toltec Connector.
These messages are stored in MS-TNEF format and will not be readable.

Kolab2 will have interoperability between Outlook, the Web Client and Kontact...
I would recommend waiting for Kolab2's release. At the moment there are no
migration guideline or anything else to assist you so you would pretty much
be stuck if you encounter any Kolab2 related problems. Also, there is no
gaurantee that a Kolab2 development server that works today will continue
to work tomorrow... 

My advise is to hang on and ask again at the end of August...
