Converting Outlook to 2010

So as I anticipate the release of Office 2010 and upgrading to Outlook 2010, I wonder is there an easy way that I can import everything over? I know about the PST, but I would love to have it also convert my e-mail address' and rules.

Recently I have been playing around Microsoft Outlook 2010 for quite some time, a few days back I wrote a way to make a backup of Outlook 2010. This post will focus on two parts:
  1. Importing Outlook Data File(.PST) from Outlook 2003/2007 and Outlook 2010 itself
  2. Exporting Complete Outlook 2010 Items

The first part will come handy for users who want to migrate all their data(emails, contacts, calendars, etc) from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010. While the second part will come handy if you want to make a complete backup of Outlook 2010 without using any 3rd party tool. The procedure for both importing and exporting are similar to Outlook 2007, instead there is now a new Office button in Outlook 2010.
Note: I would highly recommend that you install the Outlook Data Export Add-in for Outlook 2010, it can make exporting both quick and easy.....

When I recently upgraded to Office 2010, I uninstalled Office 2007 and installed Office 2010. When I went into Outlook 2010 everything was there. Accounts, contacts, email. Not sure about rules though since I don't have any. So if you going from 2007 to 2010 there doesn't seem like there is anything you really have to do. Just unstall 2007 and install 2010. I still created a backup before the whole process and would suggest doing so just in case.
