I have archived Outlook 2003 messages on a flash drive, archive.pst. I no longer have access to a computer with any version of Outlook. I need to get those messages into a basic gmail account. Is that possible? Thanks!

You could try using the Microsoft migration tool. This should let you import from a PST file directly; guide here.

Thanks Geoff. Unfortunately, I'm on a restricted computer that doesn't allow access to programs, and I don't have Google Apps. I just have a flash drive with the pst file and access to my basic gmail account. :>( – Alan May 4 '12 at 16:05
@Alan - What you want to do is not possible without a third-party program. The simplest solution is to use the mail program built into Windows ( you don't indicate what version ) and use third-party mail to import that messages. Once you do that you figure the built-in mail program and transfer the email. Thunderbird will import the messages also. – Ramhound May 4 '12 at 16:30
