    Outlook 2003 > 2010

    I have Office 2003 on my old computer and have just bought a new computer with Office 2010 installed. To migrate Outlook from the old computer to the new one, can I simply copy the Outlook 2003 PST file from the old computer to an appropriate folder (where?) on the new one and tell Outlook 2010 to use it (how)?

    Yep, it can be that simple. If you want to benefit from the new pst format, though (bigger size allowed), you may just use a new pst and then copy your stuff from the old one.

    Note, this will move your email folders but NOT your email accounts!. You need to use the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard to get the accounts transferred. Of course you can manually re-enter them also.
