Migrating Outlook 2002 to Outlook 2010

My Mom has an older XP computer running Outlook 2002. We want to migrate her to a newer Windows 7 computer running Outlook 2010 Professional. Her email is hosted with Frontier.com. We are not using MS Exchange. She might want to read email on her iPhone, but not if it requires paying for Exchange. Could you please provide me with a list of concrete, discrete steps for the migration process? She would like me to explain the steps (and the overall process) before we undertake them. Thank you.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need to check what method current Outlook 2002 using.
is it using POP or IMAP?

If it is about IMAP, then PST might not even come to play. and IMAP, you are possible to use Iphone  to read the emails.


and since it is support by Yahoo, https://login.frontier.com/webmail/
