Outlook 2007 - Backup Question
Posted on 2014-07-12
I'm using Outlook 2007, and I have many different email accounts being managed. I don't have specific folders for each account. In other words Folder1 may be used to collect email from more than one account (Account1, Account2 etc). I have to delete one of the accounts because some server changes etc have been made. After it's been deleted, I have to re-add it with the new settings. I've tried simply changing the server settings etc, but GoDaddy has recommended deleting and re-adding the account since simply changing the settings have not been successful.
So, I've backed up my entire Personal Folders object to a PST using File > Import and Export. After I delete and re-add the one email account, I will need to import the emails to get me back to square 1.
So to recap, I'm deleting and re-adding only one email account, yet I've backed up everything (all accounts). I wish I could backup only the one account, but I don't believe this is possible, is it?
Question: What's going to happen when I import the entire PST backup file, if I'm only deleting and re-adding one account? What will happen with the emails in the other accounts? Will they be duplicated? Overridden? Skipped?... during the import?
I hope this isn't too confusion. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
