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.

Our Outlook Express has vanished from our computer. Can you tell us why and what we can do to re-install it. Thank you, Norman Crites


Click start, Click RUN, type: msimn.exe, Press <ENTER> outlook express should open. If it does, then you can create a new shortcut on the desktop by Right Clicking the blank desktop, Click NEW, Click Shortcut, type the path: "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" then finish the wizard.

If msimn.exe give an error, the go to add/remove programs, Click Add/remove Windows Components, Check the checkbox next to Outlook Express, Click Next and finish the wizard (You may be prompted for your Windows XP CD)

If you are using Windows Vista, it doesn't include Outlook Express, Vista uses Windows Mail for the default mail handler.

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.
