Importing Outlook 2003 Contacts and Mail from an XP machine to a new Vista machine

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Robert W. Rafferty, Aug 31, 2007.

  1. I bought a new Vista Machine. My wife's old computer has Outlook 2003
    installed which my wife uses for her email. Can I import the Contact List
    and the email to the new machine?

    The easiest way is to install Outlook 2003 on the Vista machine, copy the
    ..pst file over, and open the .pst file in Outlook. Then keep using Outlook
    2003, as it's better than Windows Mail.

    If you want to use Windows Mail, or Windows Live Mail, open one of them and
    go to
    File - Import

  3. Export it as a CSV file, Windows Contacts can import that.
