Windows 7: retrieve emails from a dead Outlook 2010 account....please

retrieve emails from a dead Outlook 2010 account....please

I could really use some help please. I had an Outlook 2010 account as a contracted person with the UN and they killed the account and decided to use a gmail account (I have no idea why!). I would like to get all my emails (folders too if possible) on, say, a USB stick and then put it on my new work computer.

I tried the Export function but you need to sign in and the account doesn't work. So, can I copy the outlook.pst file or even all of the .pst files and then open them somehow in another computer with Outlook?

I don't want to use these anymore to contact or respond, I just want to have the messages and the addresses of the people who sent them to me and my outgoing messages and conversations too.

So what can I do here?

Thanks a lot!

Yes you can point your Outlook data file to the pst you have. As long as your Outlook version is the same or higher.

Welcome to Seven Forums johnny99. As roban mentioned, you can indeed import your .pst file(s)
