    travels with outlook (Outlook 2000 )

    I use Outlook 2000 at home, and have set it up so that my .pst file is on a USB plug-in memory module. This means I can carry my Inbox, Contacts folder etc around with me. However, I can't take the details of my email accounts, either the hotmail one or the one on the corporate network (POP/SMTP) which when at home, I can 'send and recieve' by clicking the button. I would like to be able to take the account details in a form that would be recognised and picked up by any PC with Outlook ( most PCs in cybercafes etc have outlook installed). Can anyone help with this?

    There is an import/export format for Outlook Express and for earlier versions of Outlook (e.g., Outlook 98, Outlook 2000 in Internet Mail Only mode) with the extension .iaf which has been discussed in a few threads. Example: iaf files in email account (Outlook 2002). We've also had the suggestion to use screen captures; see <post#=373786>post 373786</post#>. If you find an efficient technique, please let us all know.

    Thanks for this guidance - I shall study those posts.

    At the moment I am reduced to writing down on a piece of paper my account details, then filling in the tools>account dialog box each time. (shades of Spike Milligan). This is the worst of all worlds. I would have thought this would be a popular option, especially in these mobile times.

    I will report back with any progress

    In these mobile times, I think most people use webmail. I've actually never thought of toting around a PST file. Perhaps that's because I couldn't squeeze it into a 256MB flash memory device. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
