How can I backup the phone book and import it after re-install OS and office 2003?
and how to know how many *.pst file is config in Outlook? assume the OS is corrupt and can't booting, need connect the harddisk via a USB interface.

Many thank!

All mail items, contacts, calendars items, tasks, etc. are stored within the Outlook.pst file within the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You should also save/restore the archive.pst file within the same directory.

Import won't be automatic, would have to be done manually via the File -> Import and Export function.

If the PST file is in the default location then simply overwrite the new PST file with the old one. If you store the PST file in a custom location then you can use Office's Save my Settings wizard, this will (when restoring settings) change the location where the PST file is stored.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
