    Transfer data from Outlook 2000/XP to Outlook 2007/Win7

    So far my searching has turned up confusing and non definitive info. In a nutshell... is it possible to seamlessly transfer ALL data? I've been able to import messages and account info into Outlook 2007/Win7 but can find no way of kluging either rules (rwz) or address (wab) info.

    Also, if I understand correctly Outlook 2007 doesn't internally store addresses and Windows 7 no longer retains an address book core app for Outlook to draw from? I'm hoping this doesn't mean Windows Live Mail requires activation?

    Any info appreciated!

    Outlook 2007 can still import your address book that you exported from your office 2k install.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Mission accomplished!

    After uninstalling and removing all traces of Outlook files I reinstalled. This time I located my original PST file into a different folder than the one created during setup (as per recommendations read in a number of threads). Low-and-behold all my messages were present as expected and, to my surprise, it also installed the address book. This I didn't think would happen as I was under the impression it's integration into the PST was not until 2003. Anyhow, all's well now.
