    I can export and import contacts--no problem, but the messages just have a sender name, title and first line. The content of the email message is lost. This is from Outlook 2000 -- full office version-- to 2003 full office on new Toshiba laptop. I would also like to back up these emails--but looks like the backups would be worthless.

    I have tried .csv for dos and windows, excel, pst, tab separated values--nothing works. The import process works--but no message content appears.

    What is the trick? it doesn't ask for id, password, etc. I didn't find anything on Microsoft's site.

    I didn't try archive--I think that asks for an id # and I don't know how to install that. I have a huge inbox with about 30 folders, including sub-folders. I guess I could try to export a piece at a time? I am a home user, XP pro to XP media edition. Plenty of space, etc. Exporting always worked before....

    Any help would be appreciated. I have puzzled over this for several months.

    Hi libbyinabq

    Instead of Importing, just copy the Personal Folders (.pst file) to the other computer and open it with Outlook 2003.
    File > Open > Outlook Data File

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
