Load email back into Lotus Notes from MS Outlook

We have Lotus Domino 6.5 and some of our users load their e-mail into Outlook. I would like to load these e-mails back into the Notes server. I tried to use the program "nupgrade.exe 3" in order to load my PST file in the Notes server, but the program asked me for the "MS Exchange Profile." What can I do in order to bypass this problem?
The nupgrade.exe 3 option is for systems where you have Outlook set as your default mail client. This is needed even if you are moving to Notes. You make Notes your default client after the upgrade. With your Outlook client setup, you then use the profile where the mail is stored (Outlook profile, by default) and you can then import all of your mail and contacts into a Notes database. This DB is local. If you want the information on the server, you would need to copy it up there.
