We're using OL 2010 as well.

I used something called Aid4Mail

They have a number of versions, but given that this was a one-time one-way conversion, I got the Home Personal 2 week license; about 30 bucks for two weeks worth of use.

It was simple to use and reasonably fast, duplicated all the Eudora mailboxes in OL. Because Eudora and OL use different names for some of the default mailboxes (IN vs INBOX, for example) we ended up with OLs folders empty and the newly created ones from Eudora full, but it only took a few seconds to select all and drag to the OL boxes, then delete the now-empty folders from Eudora.

Aid4Mail doesn't bring over Eudora's contacts info, but OL will import those on its own. If you can FIND the place where you ask it to do so. Hint: You have to think like a MS User Experience designer. IOW, destroy increasing numbers of gray cells until it starts to make sense to you to put import commands under:

File | Options | Advanced | Export

Once you unearth that, it's simple.
