Migrating the Favourite folder list in Outlook 2003

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to migrate the favourite folders list view in outlook to another users outlook settings on another computer. Where is this view stored and how can I copy it accross to another workstation.

Thanks.

M-Power,

Thank you for clarifying.  Do a search for Profile Name.fav - This is your Favorites file that includes the settings for the Outlook Bar.  .FAV file is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.

.FAV file is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Greetings, M-Power !

Favorites list is that from Internet Explorer.  It is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Favorites folder.

You can copy the Favorites folder or export the Favorites
Internet Explorer/File/Import and Export/Export Favorites...

Best wishes!

M-Power,

.FAV file is for earlier versions of Outlook.  If Outlook 2003 does not have this file, then you cannot replicate the Favorites folder on another profile.

There is a .fav file on here so I am assuming it is the one. Haven't tried moving it yet though.

I think it should be fine, thanks for the extra info though, it could be useful in the future.

Cheers.

Uh Oh, those .fav files were actually Corel Draw files.

None for Outlook, are you sure there is no other way to replicate the Favourite Folders in Outlook 2003 ?

M-Power, if you do not have a .FAV file, then there is no way I know to replicate the Favorites Folders in another profile.
