When backing up a PST file in Outlook 2003, will it include all contacts?

Also, if I use the Personal Folder Backup Utility, will it include all contacts?

Are you using Exchange?  I am guessing you're not, but that's just a guess.  If you backup the .pst, everything should be there.

As an additional backup plan, you can also export your contacts to an Excel file, or other formats, by choosing File -> Import and Export.  If you needed to, you could also import this backed up contacts file using the same method.

I am not sure about the Personal Folder Backup Utility.

comtekso,

I agree with Rob132332.  If you are not using Exhange, backing up PST file will back up the contacts in Outlook 2003.

Personal Folder Backup utility will backup all contacts, since it backs up the PST file.
