Can't find Tools tap in outlook
Finally broke down and bought a new computer running Windows 7 on it. Got office with it along with Outlook. Following instructions found at
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/import-your-messages-or-account-from-outlook-express-to-outlook-HA010079919.aspx but when I get to the part to where I need to load it onto my new Outlook itís telling me to click on the Tools menu, then click Options. I can not find the Tool tap anywhere in Outlook. In Outlook on my old computer at the top I have File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools and Help across the top. I donít see any of these on the new outlook. Can you tell me where the Tools tap is. Thanks

You're probably running Outlook 2010 which doesn't use the old menu style in Office 2007. There's no "Tools" menu in 2010. I also don't see any reference to the Tools menu for Outlook in the article you posted. Those are Outlook Express references.

Yes it is Outlook 2010. Do you know how to do it in Outlook 2010?

Do what? I don't see anything in the instructions you posted that reference the Tools menu.

nder where it says "When Outlook and Outlook Express are installed on different computers" the part where your going to load in into the new OutLook it says'
  1. On the computer where Outlook is installed, open Outlook Express. If you are prompted to create an e-mail account, click Cancel.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. Click the Maintenance tab.

It's referring to the Tools menu in Outlook Express. Since you can't have Outlook Express installed on Windows 7, you need instructions for migrating from Outlook Express on one computer to Outlook on another.
