Outlook 2010


This is my first experience of Outlook 2010. I need to move to a new computer. in Outlook 2003 I would export the pst and import into new installation.
I cannot find this option in 2010  (OS Windows 7 Pro 64bit)

Any help much appreciated

and then you can

in case you do not have any archives are have your outlook account configured as IMAP or exchange you do not need to migrate anything

You can also copy the PST from your old computer to the new one; when you setup an account you need not create a new PST but point it to the newly copied one.

Thanks for the help, but it's the export option that I can't find to get the pst file in the first place.

In my previous comment, you need not export the PST;

If you are using XP the default path is:
C:\Documents & Settings\User\Local Settings\Microsoft\Outlook
To see the path you must show hidden files

Close your Outlook client, then copy the PST file to the new computer.
If the new computer is Windows 7, you can create a folder in Documents and name it "Outlook Files", paste the copied PST there.
