My boxx doesn't like using disk imaging so I have to set up every new PC from scratch each time.  Of course the end user gets upset at the amount of time it takes to tweak all the settings in all the programs I set up.  Outlook 2000 seems to be the biggest sore spot.  I know how to .pst the messages, calendar, etc.  I need to move the settings for
each mod. and have it done quickly.

Can anyway tell me how?

Thank you!   So if I export the entire personal folder to a .pst and import it to the other machine it will bring everything including the preferred views, how the tasks are displayed, read receipt preferences, etc?

Yes, PST will bring preferred views and tasks.  I am not sure about read receipt preferences.
