Windows 7: Export Outlook 2010 Exchange content from one computer to another?

21 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Unlike you and other folks here willing to help and assist people with problems, our IT guy is always doing what's easiest for him.

So bottom line, what I want to do is possible, just he needs to allow it as Amin (click some settings or whatever)?

I made it work! Solution was to let old laptop sync all Outlook emails (wait to get message All folders are up to date), shut it down, copy .OST to new computer and start Outlook on new computer.

Please note that this method is NOT good if you want to continue using Outlook on both laptops, as as soon you start Outlook on one laptop, on other you'll get message you're using old copy of .OST file.

So this method is good only if you want to copy .OST file to new laptop and continue using it ONLY on new one. If you want to use it on both machines you need to sync from scratch on one.
