how do I move my outlook mail and settings. My old computer died but we we able to recover most of the files including my documents and setting directory. I copied the pst file into d&S\username\local settings\microsoft\outlook

When I open outlook it wants to go through a wizard to create my account. I have created the account and then recopied the pst to overwrite it, but that doesn't seem to work. How do you do this? Is all the account info in the PST or are there other files I need?

I find the best way is import the old one into the new one.
This way it should get every thing and you will have a clean PST file.

Use, File Import and Export, the select "Import from another program or file", then select PST file and then browse to where you have saved your old pst file.
