Just export the mailbox to a PST file. After import this .pst into the Outlook.

They are just few minor diference between folders, but everything will works.

So, if I go into Outlook and choose File/Import and Export the default file to be exported from will be the Exchange Inbox and not one of the other personal files folders?
What about the address book or .nk2 file?
Will this be included?

Trying it now.

Thanks.

Very Cool.
I exported/imported the inbox from the old outlook.
I guess I didn't realize that I could export/import just the address book also.
What about the .nk2 file?

Thanks.  You saved my life!

Using the Outlook Export you can make a full DUMP in .PST file of your Exchange mailbox. You can import this file to any outlook, even "stand alone" one.

Okay.
It appears that customer is using the GAL from the exchange server as his address book.
From what I've found out I cannot export the GAL list into an NK2 file for use on the standalone vista workstation Outlook.
So, here's a new problem.
I set the Contact folder on the workstation to be the first to show up in the address book when sending a new email.
But not all of the people in the Contacts folder show up in the address book list.
Some do, some don't.
I've not seen any rhyme or reason as to which do and which don't.
I've changed Contact views and checked the filtering sorting settings and I see nothing that would suggest a reason why this is happening.

Why does Microsoft have to make this stuff so DAMN convoluted???!!!
Ugh!  What a pain.

Thanks, in advance!

GAL is always used by all users. Is totaly diferent from the user contact. And no, the GAL cant be exported.

Only contacts in the address list, with emails, will show up.
