Hi All

I have today taken delivery of my brand new Dell Latitude D820 - and boy oh boy am I happy!!

However, I want to copy all of the data from my MS Outlook 2003 app to the new laptop. Is there a way to do this? I have tried first with Notes and seem to get an error saying another application has lock a portion of the file and I seem unable to import all the notes into the Outlook on the new Dell.

Is there a way to import ALL my notes/contacts/calendar/emails etc in one go?

Thanks

Find your .pst files (probably Outlook.pst) file on the old PC.
Back this up, and put a copy on the new PC. It should be quite a large file.
Open Outlook, File - Import and Export - Import from another program or file - select Personal Folder file (.pst) - next - Browse to the file you transferred, follow the menus as required.

OK Kiwiguy, thanks... I will try that. I guess with many years IT experience under my belt I should have realised that this is the way to do it. Thanks.
