webpanther, thank you for your posting;

you will need to simply boot to the windows 7 install, open outlook, then make sure that "hidden" files are disabled so that you can see all the system files, then you choose "import" in outlook, and direct it to the vista hdd to %root%/users/username/appdata/local/microsoft/outlook and there's your .pst file that contains all the email and contacts...

you may want to boot to your vista install, and export your mail settings if you have forgotten them, then log back into your windows 7 install and import your mail settings
