    I am having trouble importing outlook .pst files from my old XP machine into
    MS Mail on my new Vista machine. I've tried suggestions made on this forum,
    but selecting File/Import/Messages/Outlook Files generates the error message
    "Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client". The .pst file in question
    is on a USB because I was also finding that the "EasY Transfer" utility is
    somewhat optimistically named. I can usually work through most issues, but
    this seemingly straightforward task has me stumped. Grateful for any

    Outlook has to be instaled & configured with the pst, on the Vista PC before
    you can Import

  3. Cannot be done. OL must be installed & using the PST you want to import.
