Outlook PC to PC migration...

I'm moving my entire Outlook use from one PC to another new PC...
My current Outlook is set up very well (set up with 6 SMTP/POP accounts, 3000 (sent/received) e-mails over past few years, has all the folders and ruls...)

1) What's the easiest way to just pick it up and move it?
2) Can I just move the 1.1GB .PST file? What will not go along with it?

All other tips, tricks, links are very much appreciated...

Thank you...

All the info that you need is available in this link
Also check this link for Outlook 2000/2002/2003 File Locations and their usage

The simplest of all options is just to copy your .pst file  to your new pc .
You need to've a backup of .pst .pab .rwz(Rules Wizard rules (Outlook 2000 and earlier versions))

Sajuks has given what you need.

Is the outlook version from one PC same as in the other PC ?

Why I am asking is OL 2003 has got unicode PST whereas other earlier versions have got non-unicode PST ..

If you are transferring from a PC with older version of outlook than the newer version then check this
