Outlook Contacts – Back Up/Import/ExportLocked
Well I’m confused.. I?ve read thru MS?s Knowledgebase and the info is kind of vague. They talk about backing up, about exporting-importing.. But they don?t really explain the process clearly.
I HAVE OUTLOOK 98 SETUP on a home pc which is not networked but a standalone pc running Windows 98SE.
Outlook 98 is installed in Internet Mail Only Mode.
I did a search for any .pab files on the pc – none were found.
Apparently all my contacts and settings are stored in the .pst file which is located in C:\WINDOWS\APP DATA\MICROSOFT\OUTLOOK Folder. The only other files in this folder are “outcmd.dat” “offitems.log”
After I remove Outlook 98 in Add/Remove Programs – I will install Outlook 2000 in Internet Mail Only Mode also.
How do I backup the .pst file and then reload it into the New Outlook 2000 so I don’t lose my settings and contacts?
Also ? is there some other file besides the .pst file I need to backup?
