    For each .pst file you do the following:

    1.On the File menu, click Import and Export.
    2.Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
    3.Click Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
    4.In the File to import box, specify the path and file name of the .pst file you want to import.
    5.Click one of the following:
    Replace duplicates with items imported    Existing data will be overwritten with the information in the file that is being imported.

    Allow duplicates to be created    Existing data will not be overwritten, and duplicate information will be added to the current Outlook folder.

    Do not import duplicate items    Existing data will be kept, and the duplicate information in the file will not be copied to the current Outlook folder.

    6.Follow the remaining instructions in the Import and Export Wizard.

     Important   You should not export items that were created in multiple languages or in a language that is not supported by your system code page to a file type that does not support Unicode. For example, if you have items that were created in multiple languages in a Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst), you should not export the items to a Microsoft Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders file (.pst). The latter file type does not support Unicode. Therefore, all items that contain characters in a language other than those supported by the system code page in text fields, except the body of items such as To, Subject, and ContactName and BusinessTelephoneNumber properties of Contact items, will be interpreted incorrectly and displayed as question marks (?) and other unintelligible text.
