  1. Hi there,

    I need to backup Outlook 2003 profile and restore it into another computer but I don't have a clue how to do this. Anyone knows how this can be achieved?

    Hi, I just did the same thing with Outlook 2002. Locate the .pst file. Usually it's located in this folder:
    C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook (change [username] to your user id.

    Copy this to the new computer.

    You will still need to recreate your email account settings.

    Hope this helps.

    I think he is asking about the profile, i.e. settings, not the contents, i.e. the PST file.

    Gunny is right. I am talking about the settings in the profile not the emails.
