When you are currently using Outlook 2002, 2003 or 2007 and you’ll also be using that on your new computer, then all you have to do is copying the nk2-file to the correct location on the new computer. Sometimes you’ll need to rename the file though so it will match the name of the new mail profile.

    Copy the nk2-file to the following folder;
        Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8
        C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
        Windows XP
        C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Settings\Microsoft\Outlook
    Rename the nk2-file to the name of your mail profile.
    To find out this name use the Mail applet in Control Panel and click on the Show Profiles… button.
    By default, your profile is called “Outlook”. So in that case you would call your file “outlook.nk2”.

I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities, which I've been using for many years:
http://www.nirsoft.net/

One of them is NK2Edit:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/outlook_nk2_edit.html

Scroll down to the bottom of that page for the download links. This utility makes it easy to copy NK2 records from one NK2 file to another via simply copy/paste or even build a new NK2 file. You may also modify any info stored in the NK2 file.

It works on W7 and Office 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013. Regards, Joe
