    Corrupt files in Outlook (Outlook 2000)

    Because of corrupt files in outlook, (We are moving to a new email server and are unable to move these users) ) we are having to recreate the users mailbox. Is there a way to save the "TASK" , "Contacts" and "Calendar" files so they can be put back into the users new mailbox.??

    depends on what you mean by corrupt.

    you can copy the folders to a new pst to move them, then file |> open personal folder and copy them into the new mailbox.
    For a few items, drag and drop the items to a disk or windows explorer folder and drop them into the new mailbox.

    I am able to copy these folders into a .pst file, but when I try and copy them back into the system folder it creates another folder such as Calendar1, and Contact1 instead of overwriting the exisiting one.. Any ideas on how I can fix this?????

    open the ccalendar and drag the items from one folder to the other. use a table view (events etc) and control A to select all. then drag and drop. dete the calendar1 folder when you are sure it's empty.
