Outlook 03 to 07 migration across computers!!!

By raybiz60 ·
I have to transfer email and account settings from an older computer with Outlook 03 to a new computer with Outlook 07 and would like step-by-step instruction on how to do this without losing anything! I will also be setting up google uploader with this outlook account, once migrated and am a novice - not sure where or how to start. Any suggestions?

Copy the .pst file

by tmalo627 In reply to Outlook 03 to 07 migratio ...

Each user will have a .pst file that contains their Outlook information. By default it is located in C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

You must be able to view hidden folders if you are going to navigate to it through Windows Explorer.

Hope this helps.

Do not open the PST file on the new computer though....

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Copy the .pst file

... it's always best to import information from the old PST, once copied to a location you can access, so you don't bring potential problems to the new program.
