    MS Outlook, moving Emails
    « on: January 30, 2010, 04:17:40 PM »
    I have MS Outlook 2007, I need to move all my emails from one computer to another.

    How do I do this without forwarding each email one by one, Also, I need to move my contact list as well.

    Any help would be welcome.
    Thanks

    If you don't mind overwriting the emails and contact list on the new computer, just copy the .pst file (default name is Outlook.pst) from the old computer to the new one.

      there are no files on the new computer.
      So I do a search for the .pst files, copy to a thumb drive and them past to the new computer?
