    I create a new Outlook 2003 profile, complete the data for the ISP e-mail and then start Outlook using the new profile. The 10 days of saved e-mails at the ISP download. These are duplicates and not a problem.

    My old PST was named Outlook1. I also have a new PST named Outlook which I guess was created with the new profile.

    I want to use Outlook1 as my only PST or I want to move all of the data from Outlook1 into the new PST named Outlook. What is the best procedure to accomplish this?

    I'll save your answer so I don't have to ask again.

    Thank you

    two choices
    you can set outlook1 as a data file and read it from there or

    I would copy both the outlook .pst files somewhere as a backup
    on the exchange directory I would delete outlook.pst and replace it with outlook1.pst and rename outlook1.pst to outlook.pst

    now open outlook and it should see your old outlook1.pst as the main service
    at whatever state it was last in when you copied it
