Windows 7: Moving Outlook data from one PC to anoher

Moving Outlook data from one PC to anoher

This is my setup:

- PC1 runs Win 7 and Outlook 2010. It has my personal Inbox called Jon Local.

- PC2 runs Win XP and Outlook 2003. It holds my company data and is Server.

I want to change this setup so that I only have all my Outlook data on PC1, running under Outlook 2010. So, I need to migrate the data from PC2 to PC1.

Questions:

1. How do I do this?!

2. Do I need to convert the format of the data on PC1 to a new Outlook format?

3. Can I export the account settings? No idea what all the pop settings are and the passwords, so would be nice if I can export that and import into Outlook 2010.

4. I need to have the company data from PC2 seperate from PC1. Will it give me two Inboxes?

Thanks,

Jon

Look for *.pst file in 2003. It is probably under your user name, microsoft. outlook. Copy it or get it to the same computer holding 2010. Start 2010 and click file. Click open and select import. Answer the questions and navigate to the pst file.

Yes you can have more mail boxes in 2010. You may have to add an email box after the import. It is file --> Account settings

Thanks for that.

Anyone know about the email account settings section? I have about 4 email accounts on there and no idea of the settings for each.
