Hi,

To transfer mail, contacts (groups) of Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010, you need to export .pst (personal storage table) file in your new PC. How to export .pst file data If you want to back up only some of your Outlook data, you can create a new backup .pst file of only the data that you want to save. This is also known as exporting .pst file data. You can export only the important folders or contacts and omit folders like Sent Mail.

Follow these steps to export a specific folder:
1.	Open[b] Outlook.[/b]
2.	On the [b]File menu[/b], click [b]Import And Export[/b]. If the menu item is not available, hover your pointer over the chevrons at the bottom of the menu, and then click Import and Export.
3.	Click [b]Export To File,[/b] and then click [b]Next.[/b]
4.	Click[b] Personal Folder File (.pst)[/b] , and then click[b] Next.[/b]
5.	Click the folder that you want to[b] export the .pst file[/b] to, and then click[b] Next.[/b]
6.	Click[b] Browse,[/b] and then select the location where you want the [b]new .pst[/b] file to be saved.
7.	In the[b] File Name[/b] box, , type the[b] name[/b] that you want to use for the[b] new .pst [/b]file, and then click [b]OK.[/b]
8.	Click [b]Finish[/b].

Open in new window

     
Transfer that saved .PST file to the new system by using your favorite transfer means.

After transfer data and saved it ino your new PC. Open Outlook. To launch the Export/Import wizard, go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

Follow the wizard to import your previously saved .PST file
