I need to transfer all my Outlook98 settings and data to another pc as I am going to use that one more than my pc at home.  I have copied over the outlook.pst file which has all the data (I think), but how do I copy over all the settings I made before (eg, outlook bar shortcuts).   What I want basically is to replicate my outlook info from my old pc to my new one.  Is this possible ?

File > Import and Export > Export to a file > Personal Folder File (pst) > (select "Personal Folders" and check "Include Subfolders") Save it to the desired location, using the desired options. Then click Finish.
Transfer the file onto disk/s (winzip 6.3 has disk spanning capabilities) and install it onto the destination system.
On the destination computer with the same version of Outlook installed:
File > Import and Export > Import from another program or file > Personal Folder File (.pst) > (Select the file you exported and select the options you want) > Click next and that should do it.
