The subject line pretty much says it all. 

My personal archives have email going back 5 years that I'd like to be
able to access from Evo. And it sure would be nice not to have to retype
all those contacts in my personal address book. 

Nope. But there are plenty of third party freeware solutions which help
in migrating .pst and .pab files to Unix formats. There have been mails
earlier on this previously. So some digging up on the archives should
give you some help.

Windows Firefox is where I'd start.  It will convert pst files
into mbox, which is both FF & Evo's native format.  I can only
guess that, using the same Win32 API family it uses to read pst
files, can convert pab files, which it can export to vCard or
LDIF format, which Evo understands.
