Transferring Prefernces Between Computers (2000 SR-1)
In a few days I wll be moving my working files from a Dell 2500 with WME to a Dell desktop with W2K. The last time I did something like this I created new prefernces, dictionaries, etc. This time I want to skip the extra work. Here are the 'files' I'd like to transfer:
1. Outlook 2000 spelling dictionary, email rules
2. Word 2000 dictionary, Auto Correct, hyperlinks between files
3. IE 5.5 Favorites, Links.
Would someone tell me which files I need to carry over? All I know at this point is .pst files for Outlook (which don't have the email rules or spelling dicitonary).
