Outlook version
Outlook 2013 32 bit
Email Account
Outlook.com (as MS Exchange)
I have been using Office 2010 Outlook for my email account at msn.com


Outlook Email Account settings are:
Name: high@msn.com
Type: MAPI (send from this account by default)
Data Files: high@msn.com
Location: Not available
Address Books: Mobile Address Book (empty and not needed)
Outlook Address Book (When I select my address book it shows contacts in: J - high@msn.com)



I have recently installed Office 2013 (without first uninstalling Office 2010, poor decision?) & am currently using Outlook for my email account at msn.com


Email Account settings are:
Name: high@msn.com
Type: Exchange ActiveSync (send from this account by default)
Data Files: high@msn.com
Location: C:\Users\J\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\high@msn.com.ost
Address Books: Outlook Address Book Type: MAPI
high@msn.com Type: Exchange ActiveSync (I believe this one is used)
(When I select my address book it shows contacts in: high@msn.com)



I would like to do the following:




  1. Uninstall MS Office 2010 completely

  2. Uninstall Outlook Connector (necessary only for Out look 2010, correct?)

  3. Use Office 2013 Outlook and store all my email folders and contacts locally on drive C:\

  4. Continue using my Outlook calendar without losing appointments (present or recurring)




What are the steps I should take to accomplish this without losing my folders with stored email data or my address book?




P.S. On my registration for this forum, I entered 'NO' for using an exchange server, because I don't know what that is - hope I am correct



Thank you
