I need to transfer my old email messages from my old pc to my new pc. From 2002 to 2007/

I copied files from old. Where do i paste them? Then, how does Outlook recognize them?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Let's hope you copied the correct file. The file you need is your Personal Folders file (*.pst) It's where all the mail, calendar, contacts etc are stored. You'll need to pay particular attention as to whether you want or need to upgrade to the new PST file format that was used after Outlook 2002 since you are skipping multiple versions with this upgrade.

Take a look at these pages for info on Outlook data backup or transfer:
Moving Outlook to a New Computer
http://www.howto-outlook.com/Howto/backupandrestore.htm
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA010771141033.aspx

Note that some of the information on the Microsoft page is outdated and contains errors, particularly when applied to Outlook 2003, 2007 or 2010. Specifically:
1. Ignore any advice to copy your PST file to Outlook's default location to connect it to your profile. Doing so will often corrupt your Outlook profile. Copy it anywhere BUT the default location and then open it within your Outlook profile.
2. Ignore any advice that tells you to use export or import to transfer an entire Outlook data file. That has never been sound advice, but the process has become too deeply flawed to be trusted.

Thanks, Russ. Outlook 2007 now has folders of my old 2002 email.
