Hello geomclean1;

There is no Microsoft Outlook 7.

Did you mean Microsoft Outlook 2010 to Microsoft Outlook 2010?
Or Outlook 2007 to 2010?

Do a search for .pst files, include hidden folders and files in the search. Copy them, you'd be able to setup Outlook on the other PC with that file. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/move-you...

On your old machine, in outlook:

File > Import/Export > Export to a file > Personal folder file (.pst)
-make sure you include all subfolders.

Transfer that file to your new machine and import it.

You sure your using outlook 2007? Because I have File on mine at the top and that's exactly what I used to export my contacts/emails to my other computer.

It might be hidden for some odd reason, in which case try to open outlook and press alt on the main screen, that should open the file tab.

I copied all pst file onto a usb and then imported them to my new computer.

Now that I hopefully have imported those files, how do I enable that program.

What do you mean "typed"? Just click on the link, what you see is shortened, it won't work if you type out what you see.

You were not using Outlook before you were using Internet Explorer 7 according to what you wrote, totally different things. I.E. 7 is a browser, it does not have the ability to open Outlook files. Are you sure you were even using Outlook on the old computer? You probably just need to sign on to your web mail account on the other computer. There is no Outlook 7, there is Outlook 2007, the I.E. version can be 7 though.
