How do I transfer addresses from an XP system to the new Windows 7 system on a replacement computer? Can I move e-mail messages over to the new machine also?


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.
