Hello

I am transfering files from XP to Windows 7
I wish to get MS Outlook working again correctly with all data on the new machine.
Is it only the .pst file which has to be copied or are there others.

Thanks
John

The PST will contain all of your emails, contacts, calendars etc. However, the PST will NOT contain your account details for connecting to the mail server, nor will it contain any autocomplete entries.

The autocomplete is probably in a .nk2 file, whereas the account details will be in the registry.
