Is there a way for me to export a user's Outlook settings from one machine to another. For example, I am replacing users workstations with thin clients and in the process they lose all their Outlool specific preferences such Signatures and other things they may have adjusted.
I have tried to copy and past the respect Outlook folders located in Application data/Microsoft/Outlook and the one located under local settings. That did not work either. Is there reg setting somewhere that maybe i can accomplish this.

Are you using Terminal Server or Citrix or some other technology to provide the users with the Windows interface to applications?

Use save my settings wiz

by dafe2 In reply to Outlook

If your using Outlook 2003 you can use the "save my settings wizard" and then import them to the new install.

If your using another version, let me know here & I'll post the file names you need to copy to the new install.

There are no reg keys and there are additional files besides the *.PST.

Search and locate for ".pst" file. Copy this file to a safe location or to a CD. Note down the location path of this PST file. After moving the user to new machine, copy this PST file to the same location as noted down before. Now start the outlook. You must see the same setting as stored before.

If not pls contact me in this e-mail:
