Hi all,
does anyone know how to backup and restore outlook 2010 accounts without using the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles registry key?

Thank you

I'm assuming you are not using MS Exchange Server.

Info is saved in .pst files.

This might help:

This might be an option. Only caveat is I've never tried it.

Hi Zeus,

The only one that I have found that looks promising is ABF - unfortuantely not free - although there is a 30 day trial. I haven't tried it unfortunately.

Outlook Mail & accounts backup tool - ABF Backup for Microsoft Outlook

Please see some general info and link to ABF here too:

Backup Outlook settings | MSOutlook.info
