Moving Outlook 2010


New Member

Hi all

I want to transfer the data - email, contacts, calendar and accounts for both gmail and my ISP - from one system to another (I built a new computer, this one has a nasty habit of going off.) I don't use/want stationery etc

I'm using Outlook 2010 64bit, and Windows 7 64bit SP1 on both systems.

Does or does not the Easy Transfer tool do this for me? I have read that it will, or won't. I've also read insanely convoluted procedures to move the required files around and get Outlook to recognise them properly. I don't think it helps that Outlook keeps its files in (at least) two different places, %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Outlook Files and %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

A definitive answer would be very helpful. I haven't even finished building the new machine yet, so having or not having started Outlook isn't an issue. I just want it to work.
