View Full Version : help with Outlook 2007? Exporting pst file

11-15-2010, 4:25 PM
I'm doing a complete wipe of my personal computer right now. Finally upgrading from Win XP to Win 7. I use Outlook 2007 and want to basically save everything (my personal folders, emails, contacts etc) and put it on my new OS (Windows 7). I know it will save the mail folders (Inbox, Junk E-mail, Outbox, Send Items and Drafts folders), but need to know if it also saves my email folders i made to organize saved emails.

From my understanding I can just export the .pst file and EVERYTHING will be saved?

Exporting to a PST should preserve your file structure just fine (as long as you perform the export correctly).

I would export it, then create a new account on that Outlook, and import them to verify it worked before you wipe the computer.

Just make sure to check the box that says include sub folders.

Copy the outlook.pst file and your good to go. when you get Win 7, and Office installed do a File, Import and your good to go.
