I realize that this has been asked a few times before (somewhere) in this forum but could not locate any. When I did do mine a few years ago, the email accounts and data did not import as it was in the original setup. And per usual not all of the emails where copied over. In order to upgrade the wife's computer I had to load Win7 on another H/D in order to install 64bit. Here 32bit Win7 would not upgrade to Win10. And that now upgrades to Win10. Installed MS Pro 2010 and imported the files mentioned and found that data and emails did not all import. After reading off and on for a month I found that some people are using a newer method. (I hope posting this link is allowed) Backup and Restore all Outlook data - HowTo-Outlook and after reading this, I am more confused. Is there any info for an old man that is loosing it :)
She only has 1 email account where I had 4 email accounts, if that makes any difference. And when I imported the first time not all was imported. Is the email account included in the Outlook Data File? The howto link mentions putting the exported into a file and use that file to use in the new Outlook. I know your tired reading and I am tired typing so I'll go with what is here. THX

Don't import the pst file, open it in the profile and and use it for the delivery location. If you have a copy of the original pst, its better than using a pst that was exported from the old computer.

(Tip: this could result in duplicate messages being downloaded, if you leave mail on the server - sorting by modified field makes it easy to clear the duplicates).

Is the email account included in the Outlook Data File?
No, only mail, calendar, contacts etc. You'll need to use auto account setup to add the account to outlook.

Thank you very much. I will research this and read it all. QUESTION: after setting up auto account, then should one import the files into that account.
Also I am not getting messages that one has replied to my post and I thought I checked them all.

I'm not sure what is going on - the send failed:

Server error log
  • Swift_TransportException: Email to your-address@ gmail.com failed: Expected response code 220 but got code "", with message ""
  • src\vendor\swiftmailer\swiftmailer\lib\classes\Swift\Transport\AbstractSmtpTransport.php:383

so far, no bounces on my last reply.
