Outlook 2007 Transfer Configuration File

So I have read everywhere about the locations of all the files for outlook 2007 and how to move them around.  The issue I am having is that just moving the files doesn't create the profiles, create the email addresses in the settings tab, doesn't put the signatures back into each mailbox.  Anyone know how to transfer all the settings for outlook 2007 from one computer to another?
In my config I have 2 profiles, exchange in one and 2 IMAP/1hotmail in the second one.  Each has its own signature for each email.

Hello wrwiii12,

What operating system are you using?  Windows XP or Vista?  

The link provided by jbizzle979 has answers by me to move the account settings.

1. If you want to move signatures, and if using Windows XP, go to folder C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

In Vista, go to folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures

It is a hidden folder, so you have to unhide hidden folder. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

2. For other seettings, go to folder C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

For Vista, go to folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

3. OST and PST files are located in folder C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

In Windows Vista, PST file is located in C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook


Hope this helps!
