I have a user that is switching between networked computers.  The one that he's worked on for years is running Outlook 2003 SP1, to one that he has recently been assigned which runs Outlook 2000.  Please help me make sure that his years of contact data that he has accumulated converts into Outlook 2000 properly.  I've not seen the file structure within Outlook on either machine yet.

Thanks,,

Greetings, TechSupport115 !

Users only want to move contacts, and not emails?  If only contacts, user can export contacts as CSV file. Then in Outlook 2000, you can import the CSV file.

If you want to move emails and contacts, do search for PST file. PST file is usually located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.  It is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

If the PST file is in Outlook 2003 format, unicode, you need to create a new PST file in 97-2002 format.

Create a new PST file.

Then drag all the emails and contacts addresses to the new PST file.

Now you can copy the new PST file to computer with Outlook 2000.

Best wishes!
