Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

Cannot open Outlook data file for WinXP or Vista

I'm trying to secure our desktops. We are updating our address book through the network then I have our users login script automatically copy this file to their local drive on the C: root directory. WinXP users have to be system administrators on the system in order for them to be able to open this file through Outlook and our Vista users the same way plus an extra added twist, the UAC have to be turned off! I can't find any way to secure this. We have tried using Workfroupshare previously but this just hangs up the system or it just plain makes Outlook very sluggish and slow.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Dan

Outlook data files should be found within a users profile. Documents and Setting, User Name.

You are looking for a ".pst" file. If time allows, search for "*.pst" without " ".

Hope this helps!

How do you import contacts


When you install Outlook 2010, it automatically converts the Personal Address Book that you used in an earlier version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook 2010 then adds the converted data to your Outlook 2010 Contacts folder.

If Outlook 2010 does not automatically convert your Personal Address Book, you can import your Personal Address Book to Outlook 2010. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Outlook 2010.
  2. Click the File menu.
  3. Click Open, and then click Import. The Import and Export Wizard opens.
  4. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
  5. Click Personal Address Book, and then click Next.
  6. Click Browse, locate the Personal Address Book that you want to import, and then click OK.

    Note Earlier versions of Outlook assign a .pab file name extension to a Personal Address Book. By default, Outlook stores the Personal Address Book in the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
  7. Click Next.
  8. Click Finish to import the Personal Address Book.

How do I transfer pictures, music etc from the old computer to the new one


Several ways. Best is to get an external hard drive - they are cheap and they offer backup.

Another way is to hook up both computers on a network. can be done without a router or an ethernet hub - switch via a "cross" cable (as opposed to "patch" cable. Please be advised that the second option is by far cheaper but it could be a pain to set up properly.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite


I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
