Backing up Outlook

Is all the information about all the Outlook profiles kept in this directory:

C:\Document and Settings\USER'S LOGIN ID\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

I'm thinking of uninstalling Outlook to fix a problem and re-installing.  I want to make sure I could back up all my setting for all my profiles and restore them after a new install.

What else should I backup?  What else should I consider when doing this?

Thanks,
Andrew

Dont forget the Personal Address Books and utlook Settings Files.

Fo to Tools/Services wihtin Outlook.
Then Choose Personal Folder and select properties.
There you'll find the file-name and path used to store your information.
