Windows 7: OUTLOOK Import multiple accounts

OUTLOOK Import multiple accounts

I want to move my emails to a new computer.
I think I have the export part correct, just not sure about the import part in Outlook 2010.

I have 3 email accounts and have exported to a .pst file each individually to a USB stick.

I've installed Outlook 2010 on new computer.
I've found tutorials on youtube how to import 1 account but not multiple accounts.
Here's where I'm a bit confused & not sure how to proceed.

The last time (years ago) I did this I failed miserably.
If I remember I & ended up with the same sub folders duplicated in each account, tried again and ended up with them all under 1 account... basically I made a mess & had to get others to sort it for me.

This time I thought I should ask FIRST.

Do I import each .pst file straight into Outlook
Do I create the 3 accounts in Outlook and then import the individual .pst file to each account.
another way?
is there anything I should be aware of?

(I hate asking my man how to do computer stuff, it's like us putting flatpacks together always ends up in a fight )

Thai MS website should help you. Read through it to find the info on Outlook 2010. Probably best to import each one separately in case of any problems & check each one has worked before doing the next.

Don't forget your Contacts & Calendar if you use one will need to be imported as well.

Outlook 2010 multiple accounts
Hello, Is there a way to check only one of my mail accounts at a time in Outlook 2010? Not just send/receive all. Outlook 2007 is much easier to configure. Thanks, John
