hi there, just a little stumped on this unusual problem. a customer has created calendar and contacts in a folder in the inbox of outlook 2010; I want to put them back in the right place in the new install of outlook 2013. do I just export the folder and import back to calendar and contacts (people)? or is there a better approach? the account is a gmail imap

You can either import and drag and drop to the main level.

Because you use imap and outlook 2013 changed how the special folders *calendar etc) are handled, with them in the imap folders, I would create the profile using the control panel applet, add a pst to the profile and set it as default before opening Outlook. Use it for calendar and contacts and the imap folder for mail only.
