Windows 7: Backing up Mail and Settings... Outlook 2010

Backing up Mail and Settings... Outlook 2010

I am trying to migrate all my settings and emails (Outlook 2010)from One computer to another but I am having difficulty accomplishing my task

One PC is running Windows XP 32 bit and I am trying to migrate my settings to the new one running Windows 7 64 bit, which should not be a problem, right? I would not ask for help if it was only 1 email account but I am running 3 email account from Outlook and I can't remember the settings of 2 of them as it is... it has been a while

Office 2010 backup method suck from here to the Moon since you may be able to export your Data but NOT the settings.

1st thing I tried was Backrex Demo, it did its job on the XP side of things but on the Win 7 side it tells me that it does not find my outlook even though it is installed. Heck, I even installed the one I do remember but to no avail... Backrex told there was no Outlook installed.

Granted, it was only a Demo and I sure the heck don't want to spend money for the Paid version if it will not do what its supposed to.

So, any FREE third party Apps I can run or heck, I would be glad if Microsoft can throw us a bone and give us something to work with.
