Moving outlook 2003 info to outlook 2013
Posted on 2015-01-13
- Older computer running windows XP with outlook 2003. On that computer I had two pst files outlook.pst and archive.pst.
- New computer is windows 8.1 running outlook 2013. I set it up and was able to transfer information form outlook.pst file to new one during setup. Then I put the archive.pst file also in the same folder as outlook.pst is. However I can not see this information being accessible within outlook. Also the new information from outlook.pst are all transferred under heading of personal folders. I can send and receive mail and received mail also go to inbox under personal folders.
There is another set of folders under heading of outlook that are Inbox, etc. Each time I open the outlook it goes the inbox under Outlook heading that is empty and I have to switch to inbox under personal folders to see my mail.
Also while I can see my contacts exist under "contacts - personal folders" I can not see them on the address book.
My questions are:
How can I transfer all the folders from personal folders heading to outlook heading as default and get rid of the personal folder heading.
How can I make outlook to read the archive.pst file and make it accessible from within outlook.
How can I make outlook to make the contacts visible on address book.
