Import messages and accounts into outlook after clean install
Posted on 2003-10-24
My installation of win2k has gone crazy so I have made a clean install on a new partition and am going through the task of re-installing all my apps. I have installed office 2000 and am having some problems getting outlook to its previouse state i.e. getting all my messages and accounts back. (Just to be clear I still have the old installation of outlook with all its accociated files on the other partition).
After replacing the outlook.pst file with the one from my other installation I find that although it has imported my messages and folders, it has not imported my email accounts.
Can anyone tell me the best way to get my new installation of outlook set up exactly the same as the old one? I'm sure I've done this before without problems but I've obviously forgotten something.
