I don't believe there's anything compatible with those .pst files. 
However, many people use Thunderbird for email.  You can also add the
Lightning calendar and even sync it to Google Calendar.  Email address
should stay the same.  Just configure Thunderbird to use it.  In fact,
Thunderbird can often automagically configure itself, once you give it
your email address.

You can get Thunderbird from  While you're there, you
might also want to get the Firefox browser.
