hi guys i have a problem with my computer..
i have replace my mcbookpro for another one and i have backed up the foder user/username/ office 2011 identities
in theory thats the folder that hold the email and all the information..
but if i paste that folder into the new mac i cant get nothing..
when i click outlook it does anything..
there is any other folder that i need to backup ? or paste it in a special way ?

do you have any idea what i need to backup to get all my mails into my new computer ?

thanks for the help.

    If you still have the old MacBook, why didn't you just use Migration Assistant to copy everything?

    @maximus5328: thats what i did.. but rather than switching identities.. i  set the old identitie folder and past the new one..
