Windows 7: Install Outlook 2007 on new computer - question

Install Outlook 2007 on new computer - question

It has been several years since I installed MS Outlook as my email client and I've forgotten just what information is required to set up an account. Could someone suggest the information needed from my ISP before I begin the software reinstall on my new computer?

If I copy over my .PST and .NK2 files, once I've installed the software, will this be sufficient to allow Outlook to work on the new computer or must I go through setting up the email account again?

My sincere thanks for all of you who take the time to advise and help.

Just to be on the safe side it would be a good idea to write down all the details of your email account/s, such as what the settings are for each one.

You can export the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook on the old machine and import on new. This will bring over your account settings minus the password for each.

I have GMAIL setup in Outlook for someone. They have their own contacts setup as well. My question is by default it uses business cards. Is it possible to change from business cards to just a list of contacts? If not do any of the newer Outlook versions 2010 or 2013 offer this option? Thanks
