Goodevening Everyone,

I am wanting to reformat my computer tonight and i was just wondering if someone could tell me how i could save my already recieved emails and my email accounts so that i could put them back into Outlook 2003 once i have reformated. I hope that made sense :rolleyes:

Thank you for your help and time

Just go into file -> Import and Export. Choose Export to a file then choose Personal Folder (.pst) the select folder(s) then choose where you want the file saved to then click finish.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

thanx for the reply Aces&Eights.. Can i export 'Personal Folders' and select the box that says "also sub-folders".. will that save all the folders inside the 'Personal Folders' Section? (when treed on outlook, all my folders are under expanded 'Personal Folders')

What about my E-mail accounts that i have used on Outlook 2003?

Thank you for your help and time :)

Yep when you select all subfolders every folder underneath will be backup up to the *.pst file that gets created.

Now with email accounts I am now sure I will check it out. I have never done it this way so I do not know. Maybe some else already has the answer, but when I get one I will post it for you.

Cheers

The *.pst file only is the emails you have recieved not that account settings. For that there is a registry key you need to save but it does not save the passwords to all your email accounts... dammit i cant remember what that key is...

I'm pretty sure that registry key is here :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Windows Messaging Subsystem

You'll see a Profiles key which will list your default profile. Just export the whole key (and all the subkeys), and then import it to your newly built machine.

Personally I'd just create a new profile in Outlook and put in all the account details again, then import the .pst, but each to their own !!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
