I'm moving files/settings from one laptop to another. Each has XP Home and
Office 2003. Each has a single user (login=Paul) and same password. I used
the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (FSTW) to do this. The problem is
that the Outlook PST and settings (and other settings and files) didn't
transfer.

I think it's because the original laptop has "Owner" in C:\Documents and
Settings, the new one has "Paul" in Documents and Settings. Of course, each
has "All Users" and "Default User". Is there a way to transfer the settings
and files for "Owner" on the old system to "Paul" on the new system? If
there isn't, how can I make sure I have a perfect copy of the old system's
Outlook 2003 contacts, rules, mail, etc, especially the mail account info.
Thanks

Export your current folders to a .PST file using Outlook's "Import/Export"
wizard.
