Thank you for reading this request. I am moving data and settings for a customer running Windows Mail and Calendar on a Windows Vista over to a new Windws 7 Pro with MS Office. These are two different boxes so I can't just export from Windows Mail or Calendar. What is the quickest way to do this?

The best way to do this is to install a copy of Office on the Vista computer and import the email using Outlook. Once email and contacts are into Outlook, you can copy the PST file to the new computer. This normally works just fine.

Yes it should. Import should pick up email, calendar, contacts, and tasks (if any). Check of course.
