Hi,
You can simple use any third party tool which merge your all PST files into one PST file from any platform or any laptop or desktop. I personnaly recommend use SysTools PST Merge.

Very simple, its a 3 steps procedure.

1. In the old laptop please goto contol panel> Mail> Data Files. That shoud give you the loaction where your outlook data file is stored(e.g outlook.pst), please copy that into tumb drive or trasfer that into you new loaction perferabaly copy it in my documents create a new folder called outlook..(This file maybe very large would suggest if you use a tumb drive of atleast 1GB)

2.In the new laptop go to Control Panel in the left pane select classic view then > Mail > Data Files > you would exsistiliy see there is a outlook.pst dont worry its creatd by default> in the same tab on the top bar you would see add button. add the old pst file from browsing to the location you had copied> set the new pst file as default> select the exsisting file location and delete the same. Cilck Ok when your done.

3. Start Outlook and you would see the same outlook as your old laptop with all your mails, conatcts and calender dates..everthing copied.

Enjoy. and do let me know if you face any problems.

You can click on your Contacts tab or button in Outlook and then go to the File menu Import and Export. Next choose Export to a file. Next under create a file type you should probably choose second option of Comma separated values(Windows). Next choose window make sure your Contacts are highlighted and click Next. Now you should name the file and choose to save it to a flash drive if you have one. Click Next and then click Finish. Just take the file you saved to your new laptop and go to your Contacts and choose Import and Export again. Choose import from other program or file. Next choose Comma separated values(Windows). Next locate where you have saved the file. Choose to allow duplicates or not. Click Next. Make sure Contacts are highlighted and click Next. You should be able to continue now to you see Finish. Hope this helps.

For creation of backup I used this tool, try:
Outlook Express is one of the most popular mail clients at the moment. Its popularity is attributed to the fact that it is included in the distribution package of all Windows operating systems starting from version 95 OSR2. It is absent from Windows Vista and later in Windows 7 where another mail client is used - Microsoft Mail. So, users quite often encounter the problem of backing up information from Outlook Express. You can solve it with Outlook Express Backup Toolbox.

I just want to download outlook express and use that for e-mail. Which program should I use?


Outlook Express is a part of every windows operating system except Windows Vista (Uses Windows Mail) and Windows 7 (no Email client part of the operating system you can download Windows Live Mail)
If you are using XP or an older version of windows and outlook express is not installed, you can install it from add/remove programs, Windows Options.
If you have vista, then install Windows Mail from Programs and Features
If you have 7 the download Mail from windows live essentials :

Hidden Program


In Windows 98 the MS fax client is installed as part of the windows messaging package and uses a mapi client like exchange client, outlook, or windows messaging to work. Try 'add/remove software' in the control panel and see if you can unistall windows messaging. If you have the win 98 install cd, there is a file called wmw-fax.txt in the tools/oldwin95/message/us folder. you might find the information in there.
