I learned a long time agon about OE and its storage folders so it was ewasy
to move OE files from one PC to another or to a portable Hard Drive for
storage. However I cannot work out how to transfer OUTLOOK messages and their
files/folders from a PC to any other/portable HD! Is there a storage folder
somewhere that I can't find?

How to backup and restore Outlook

There is out-dated information on some of these pages, specifically with
regard to Outlook 2003 and 2007.

The main points to note:
1. Do NOT use the import/export function to move Outlook data from one
version to another - all you need to do is to copy the pst file, with
Outlook closed.

2. Do NOT paste the copied pst file into the default location - paste into
(for example) your Documents folder and then do File-Open-Outlook Data File
within Outlook.
