I purchased Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 and am going to install and would like your advise before I install in regards to Outlook and am using Windows 10 64-bit on desktop. Currently, I have Office 2007; however never setup Outlook but I do have my pst file from Outlook 2003 and want to use it with Outlook 2013.

I believe the first step is to uninstall Office 2007. Then copy my pst file from office 2003 to my documents in 2013. I keep my .pst file in a separate area.
Install Office 2013 and I am assuming I skip the part about install Outlook, but not sure since I have not installed 2013 yet? Once the install is complete open outlook and setup my email account. What I am not sure about is how to connect the pst file to Outlook since I keep the .pst in a different area?

Below is what I used when I went from 2003 to 2007 but I suspect things are different with 2013?
- Open outlook 2007 and setup my email
- Go to Tools>Options>Mail Setup.Data Files>Add
- Add the PST as my new default, then Close > OK to exit the Options dialog
- Go to Tools > E-mail Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts
- Select the PST I added in the "Deliver New e-mail to the following location" dropdown (it will most likely appear just below the current default Personal Folders file) > Finish

Thank you

You can use the same steps you used with Outlook 2007 -

Do it the same way you did before - Data files tab > Add, then browse for it.

I clicked on outlook to setup my email account and put in my name, email address and password and it said it was configured; however at the bottom of the dialog box it says your IMAP email account is successful configured. I did not have the options that I listed in my instructions, which was to Go to Tools>Options>Mail Setup.Data Files>Add. It already took me to the add account. I do have a box at the bottom that states Change account settings. I am assuming this is where I put in my POP address and can direct to my pst?

I selected cancel and then setup my POP manually and seems to be working including contacts except I have two inboxes. I suppose I could close up favorites and just use the other?

Thanks for your help. I got it figured out. Now onto why Lync will not work. I use it at work and it is a great tool. Put in my email addresss and try to log in and it gives me an error message that it cannot find m lync server for my ISP.
