Question about Microsoft Outlook
Can someone describe to me a step by step procedure in saving all my current e-mails and all folders in MS Outlook so I can install them on a new computer. I've read some info, however I do not even know how to locate the Outlook file in the C drive
First of all, I assume that all the email account settings have
already been setup within Outlook on the new computer (as you have been
using Outlook on the new computer successfully to send and receive
If you want to transfer your files you will need to copy the Outlook PST file from your old computer to your new computer.
To find the location of the PST file, open Outlook on the old computer and in the left-hand pane you should see a listing of all your email folders, with the root heading being “Personal Folders”. This is your Personal Folders PST file which contains all your email.
If you have any more questions or this description is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

It is a powerful tool to recover messages, folders and other objects from corrupt or damaged Microsoft Outlook PST files.

First of all you have to export any emails you want saving to pst file on your desktop.
1st create a new folder on the desktop and name it Outlook or something similar.
2nd open MS outlook and click on the file tab, click on import and export, a new window will pop up and you choose export to a file and click on next, look down the list of file extensions and select personal folder file (.pst) and click next, in the next window select the email folder you want to save, inbox for example, include subfolders if you have to and click next, in the next window click on where it says browse and navigate to the newley created folder called Outlook that you created, call the file name inbox.pst and click OK, then click finish.
Do this action for all the folders you need to save making sure you name the file accordingly so you know where they came from.
Once you have saved all the emails you can copy the new Outlook folder to a flash drive or CD.
When you have your new operating system installed any you have your office suite on, to copy the emails back do the same again but this time you need to import from a file, just navigate to your saved Outlook folder and keep doing that until all your saved emails are back on the system.
Post back if you need anymore assistance.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
