Recently purchased MS Office 2019 through the  Microsoft Home Use Program (we are SA subscribers).

Upon attempting to install you are prompted that you must uninstall any older versions of Office prior to installing 2019.  No problem with this except that I have 13 email address in Outlook and a complex folder and rule structure that I would rather not have to rebuild.

Information pertaining to this on the web is conflicting and sketchy.  Some say you must create PSTs prior to uninstall, and then restore the PSTs after the reinstall while others suggest "don't do that" as it can cause problems.

Not sure what the best practice is.  Any suggestions appreciated.
