I am buying a new PC and I want to copy my profile/account settings to my new computer before I install Office 365. I usually set these up in:-
Control Panel
Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2013) (32-bit)

I have several e-mail addresses and to set up from scratch is quite cumbersome.

Is this possible? Is there a facility to accommodate the transfer?

I use POP3/pst files and will copy them over to the same folder on the new computer before installing Outlook.

You can try exporting the profile from the registry, but it may error when you move it to a different computer because path names and computer guid changes. If you are lucky, you'll just need to point it to the correct locations for the data files on the new computer.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Profiles

Thanks Diane. I'll set up manually rather than use the registry.

I was hoping Microsoft would have devised a more automated way to do this, as I have 4 accounts and it's a bit labour intensive.
