Can anyone tell me how to transfer my contacts in MS Outlook to my new computer? I thought it would be a simple matter of copying it to flash drive then putting flashdrive in new computer - but not so simple.
open outlook on old PC, go to 'File' 'import& Export' on drop down list select 'export to a file' hit next select'Personal folder file (.pst) highlight 'contacts' outlook will then give you standard directory field in My Documents, click finish, it will then build the file, copy to removable media to new computer and this time on opening outlook select import & export and then import the file to new pc
Back up and recover Outlook Express / Outlook click here Search your old computer for files ending .dbx. These are your emails. There should be Inbox.dbx, Outbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc. There must also be Folders.dbx, this is the data telling OE how the emails are compressed. Save all these dbx files, then you can either import them into OE on your new computer, or overwrite the files of the same name in the new computer. Look for a file called (name).wab, this is your address book, and a folder called Favorites. Save these and either import or overwrite to transfer them.
