How would a guy go about transfereing all the accounts and stuff from an existing intall in a dead windows installation to a new intallation on a fresh copy of windows. They are not on the same drive, but are on the same machine. I have all the emails and addresses and stuff on, ut I don't know how to go about the seetings. Normally I wouldn't worry about it, but this machine has like 12 accounts in Outlook, and some are business accounts, so if I can just tranfere, that would be awesome.

Thanks all.

There are effectively 2 things that you can transfer from Outlook.

The .PST file and your Rules.

The PST file contains:
E-Mail folders
Calendar
Contacts
Notes
Journal

The Rules you can transfer - but you first have to Export those rules to a file on your hard disk.

in Outlook 2003, From the Tools menu, choose "Rules and Alerts".
Inside of the Rules and Alerts dialog, click the "Options" toolbar button.
This will open a dialog and the first option is to export your rules. Export them to a file - then ensure that you've backed up that and your PST.

Then in your new installation - you can point Outlook to use that PST as its main Mail Delivery location - and you can Import the rules back in.

In previous versions of Outlook - it was Tools, Rules Wizard - and then go to options...

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Tuathal
