How would I go about transferring my outlook files from my old exsisting C-drive to my new C-drive, through my network?  What files on the C-drive do I need to transfer to new computer; for email addresses and emails that have been saved.
thanks in advance

in your C drive outlook files are in

C:\Documents and Settings\< username> \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst

the outlook.pst will have everything..

mind you the local settings folder is hidden

Greetings, specka69!
  Your Outlook file is a .pst file.  Make it shareable, and then you can transfer it to other areas of your network.  Then you can import the PST file from Outlook in the other area.

Best wishes, war1

Actually it doesn't have the address book or some of the settings or the rules.
