Windows 7: How do I create an Outlook Data File (.pst) in Outlook 2003

How do I create an Outlook Data File (.pst) in Outlook 2003

I'm working in Windows for Mac on a MacBook Pro. I'm trying to import my old PC email archives files (in pst format). I get the message:
ANSI-formatted .pst files, also known as Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders Files, were the standard personal folder format for saving data in Outlook for Windows in versions 97-2002. This file format can't be imported into Outlook for Mac.
Beginning with Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, a new Personal Folders file (.pst) format was introduced that supports multilingual Unicode data and offers greater storage capacity for items and folders. Outlook for Mac can import this newer, Unicode version of the Personal Folders file (.pst) format.
If you have the older version of the ANSI-formatted .pst file, there is no automated procedure to convert that file to the newer file format. However, you can create a new Outlook Data File (.pst) in Outlook 2003 (for Windows) or later versions, and then import items from the older file into the new file. You can then import the new .pst file into Outlook for Mac.
But how do I create a new Outlook Data File (.pst) in Outlook 2003 (for Windows) or later versions??

Dear Jeremy,

You can also follow these steps:
  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Outlook Data File.
  2. In the Types of storage area, click Office Outlook Personal Folders File (.pst) to create a new Outlook 2003 .pst file. Click Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst) to create a new Outlook .pst file that is compatible with earlier versions of Outlook.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Use the default Outlook folder location, or you can locate a different folder location.
  5. In the File name box, type a name for the new .pst file, or you can use the default name. Click OK.
  6. In the Name box, type a title for the .pst file, or you can use the default title of Personal Folders. The title that you enter in the Name box is the name that is used on the Outlook 2003 All Mail Folders list, and it is applied to any shortcuts that are made for the .pst file on the Outlook Bar. You can also select an encryption setting and a password for the .pst file. After you select the settings that you want, click OK.

Note You cannot change the encryption setting after you create the .pst file. For more information about the encryption settings, see the "Security settings for .pst files" section in this article.
The new .pst file is added to the Outlook 2003 All Mail Folders list. To view the Folder List, click Folder List on the Go menu.
