    Outlook Settings (OT 2000 and >)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I need to reinstall MS-Office 2000, and I was wondering if Outlook 2000 has a Personal settings file that I can preserve and then place in the right path once I am done reinstalling Office.

    Where and what file should I copy.

    By settings I am talking about accounts and Inbox column inclusions and stuff like that.

    Thanks in Advance

    Wassim, you're an old hand. Go to the list of threads for the Outlook Board, click on "Subject" and you'll find that all the threads are arranged (in reverse alphabetical order) by Subject. Scroll down to words beginning with "Transfer" and you'll see that we've had a fair few threads on this in the last few months. I know that - between them - they've gone into virtually all the permutations of what can and what can not be transferred/backed up. Hope This Helps

    ??? If you mean "Views," I believe these are stored in the PST file with your messages.

    Some of the other items are scattered around among files such as profilename.rwz, profilename.fav, outcmd.dat, extend.dat, and vbaproject.otm. Account info is, I believe, stored in the Registry. As unkamunka suggests, you should review previous posts that recommend comprehensive approaches; Slipstick also should be helpful.

    For sure back up everything under Application
