[mso] Re: Outlook on A New Computer

Thanks for the information.  I did that and the main Outlook Folders
were correct.  When I tried to restore my personal Folders, I mixed them
in with all the others (the Inbox, Calendar, Contacts, etc.).  I have
tried to "undo" what I did to no avail.  I now have a Personal Folders
folder that I can not delete.  Is there a line in the registry that will
get rid of the Personal Folder folder that I can not delete?  I would
like to try to import or force my old collection of folders into Outlook
but not at the same level as the Inbox, etc.  Am I making any sense at
all?  Can this be done?

Thanks again

George

All you need to do is search the hard drive on the new computer for
outlook.pst so you know where it is....then make sure Outlook is closed
and just copy the outlook.pst from the old computer to that location and
it will overwrite the default one on the new computer and the new
computer will have everything the old one had

I backed up or actually copied my Outlook2000 pst file and my personal
folder file.  On the new computer I am running Windows XP and Outlook
XP.  The import function would not allow me to import the pst file so I
opened it in Outlook XP.  I now have a calendar, contact, and other
folders in my new outlook.  I tried to copy the contacts and calendar
folders into the ones that Outlook XP produced when installed but could
not do it.  I ended up with a Calendar folder under the Calendar folder
in Outlook XP and the same for the contact folders.
 
How can I get my calendar and contact information into the main folders
and out of the secondary folder under them?
 
Thanks for the help
