    I always set up Outlook with the accounts and then IMPORT ALL of the old PST into a new clean PST file.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks, but I must plead ignorance on some of this. One item that may complicate things is the old computer that has the data on it only has a shared folder on the network. In other words, one can't access the whole computer remotely. If it is a matter of finding .pst files, then we could find and move those I suppose.
    and finally, will this bring over all the calandar Items, e-mail address AND the e-mail folders with their content?

    I have found that when moving a PST file, one can have a "Ownership" issue. To prevent this I will copy the pst to a shared drive or folder on the new machine and do the import. One can also copy it to a CD , thumbdrive and etc and import from there.
