Move to another machine (Outlook 2007)
I am moving my Outlook 2007 from one VIsta Machine to another. DO I just copy the pst file from one machine to another after I have set up the new Outlook?

Re: Move to another machine (Outlook 2007)
Your PST contains your data. Historically, account information has been stored in the registry, and selected UI elements (e.g., toolbar settings) and macros have been stored in separate files in your profile folder (Cocuments and SettingsUsernameApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook).
