I use an application called Calibre. It is a free e-book library organizer, but it also includes many conversion tools. It is being constantly updated and is open source if you are interested in things like that.
To use, just enter your manuscript as an entry in the library and then tell it to convert to epub. Some formats are easier to convert from, so you may want to save it in a variety of formats and try different conversions.
