Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

Q: Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

I recently purchased a new computer that has Office 2010 installed. I would like to move the contents of my .pts file from my old computer which has Outlook 2007 to my new computer which has Outlook 2010. Before, when I wanted to transfer my .pts file from one computer to another I would just copy the file to a portable hard drive and then transfer the file to the other computer. However, Outlook 2010 is completely different animal. When I go to C:, Users, App Data, etc., new computer, it is completely different from my other computer that had Vista. My question is, how can I transfer my .pts file and/or my address book, calendar, contacts, etc. for my older Windows Vista computer that had Outlook 2007, to my new computer that has Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 installed? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Preferred Solution: Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Moving Outlook Messages and Address Book From Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don’t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!

10 days ago I moved from an XP machine to a new Win7 machine using Win Easy Transfer. I re-installed my Office 2007 and all my emails and Contacts showed up in Outlook but I cannot select the check box that says Show Contacts in Address Book because it is greyed out. In researching this issue in the MS forums, there was consensus that WET screws up the Outlook transfers At the suggestion of other folks, I have tried copying the original PST file directly, copying it and importing into the new Outlook, created a new profile and directed it to the original PST file, and removed the OAB service from my profile and re-installed it. None of this has worked to fix this problem; the checkbox in the properties folder for each Contact folder is still greyed out.

I have been struggling for the last 9 days to find an answer to this problem and at this point I am contemplating uninstalling and re-installing Office 2007 (after saving the current PST file with my new incoming emails) and then bringing a copy of the "old" PST into the new Outlook data location and creating a new profile again. If it works properly, then I will migrate to the new profile. Then I can delete the "new" re-installed profile. Since this is a LOT of work, I would appreciate hints, tips, or actual solutions to this before I wipe out Office on my new machine.

At work I use Office 2007 and Outlook is our e-mail client. I have many names in my address book but I want to be able to have a certain group of people that I can send mail to with a click of the "To" button. The help file is not very helpful at all.

A:Solved: Outlook 2007 Contacts/Address Book

Read other 10 answers

Somehow the address book that populates when I click the "to" button on an email disappeared.

I followed the MS forum directions to add an address book and did the following:

Under the Tools menu, I picked "account settings" then the "address books" tab

There it shows: Outlook Address Book MAPI

The only options available are "new" and "change". The remove option is grayed out.

I picked "new" and then selected "Additional Address Books", then clicked "next"

The choices were:
Mobile Address Book
Outlook Address Book

so I picked Outlook Address Book then clicked next and got the message:

"This account or directory type already exists and cannot be specified twice"

I'm not sure what to do since the option to first remove it is not available. I tried the "change" option and removing
the existing address book that way, but that does not work either.

I also had read that I should try deleting my email account and creating a new one. I did that (for my default email account
since I have three) but that did not help either.

It seems that it will not let me add a new address book as long as the old one (that comes up empty) is still there, but it
won't let me delete the old one either. By the way, my contacts in Outlook are still there, I can view them when I go to the
Contacts section from the main Outlook page.

Any suggestions?

OS: XP home

I recently re-installed my entire computer, incl. MS Office 2002.
When restoring the .pst files, something went wrong. Maybe I needed to re-install more than just .pst files, maybe it screwed up because I renamed the back-up files?

Either way, the problem is that the Contact folder is not displayed in the Outlook Address Book, and I cannot manage to make it so.
I tried the following:
- Right-clicking the Contacts folder, Properties, Outlook Address Book tab. The checkbox "Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is greyed out, so I cannot check it.
- Tools, E-mail accounts, View or change existing directories or address books. Outlook Address Book - MAPI is listed (as only one). When pressing Change..., I get an error message: "This E-mail account cannot be configured. Please run Outlook and choose this profile before attempting to make changes to it." There is only one profile (I had 2 before re-installation, but no longer needed the second).
If I try to Add... an Additional Outlook Address Book, or a Personal Address Book, I get the error message "The account you have added is not fully configured. It might not work properly until re-configured correctly."

Nice, but how to re-configure it correctly??? I prefer not having to re-install the program...

I tried to Remove the listed Outlook Address Book, but then could still not Add... one (same error message), so the originally listed one re-appeared.

What can I do?

I just set up new computers in my office. I copied the old Windows 98 hard drives to the new XP ones, and pointed everyone's new Outlook 2003 to their original *.pst files they were using with Outlook 2000 before we upgraded. One lady in my office had her contacts organized into folders. They all seem to have transferred over, but when she opens a new e-mail message and clicks the "to" button to choose an address, all that shows up in the address book are the addresses that are not in separate folders. Is there anything in the settings that I can tweak to fix this?

raz by the way welcome to TSG. I checked with MS Knowledge Base for importing AOL. NO go.

Why can't you "FORWARD" the emails to outlook express.

The address book you might be able to and I am not sure but with Yahoo you can export it and maybe AOL you can do the same. not sure but maybe someone else will know.

Just a few Ideas to think about. Also try AOL Email help and see if they have any suggestions.

First time for me here. I looked but didn't see "my" situation. However, I'm kind of a neophyte.

Win 7, 64 bit, Office 2007.

When I started my computer this morning, I was in the process of sending electronic Christmas cards. I opened Outlook 2007 and opened my address book to get emails. To my surprise, it was empty. Huh? This had never happened before. I clicked on the contacts in the lower left of Outlook. It says something about folder cannot be used. I opened a new email and typed "a" in the address box. There were my contacts. Auto fill works like a charm. I even tried to re-entry my contacts into my address book. I entered 3 of them. I clicked "Save and close". Then I opened my address book and none had been saved.

The only thing I did that was different was I created a Standard account, because I was advised to use it instead of the Admin account. I did not like it at all and deleted it. Everything is the same except the address book and contacts list.

Does anyone have a clue what happened? Any advice would be very welcome.

Merry Christmas to all

It sounds like your contacts folder is not listed as an Outlook Address Book. Right-click your contacts folder and go to Properties and then the Outlook Address Book tab. Check the box for "show this folder as an email address book". Hope that helps.

My operating system is Windows 7 64-bit. I transferred all of my files from my old computer, which ran XP--SP3. My email client on that computer was Outlook 2007.

After transferring the files I loaded Outlook 2007 onto the new computer and carried out whatever setup instructions I was given.

The standard toolbar on Outlook has a search box labeled "Search address books." On my old computer, if I wanted, for example, to look up a contact's phone number, I could search via that box and find the contact. On the new computer no name comes up in that box when I search it. It's empty.

To look up a contact I have to go from the Email page to the Contacts page and search in a box labeled "Search All Contact Items." All of my contacts are in there (actually, they're in there twice; somehow duplicate contacts folders were made), and the search box locates them.

I do not have a problem with email addresses. When I begin to type the name of a contact in the "To" box of an email, a list of contacts' email addresses appears in a drop-down box, just as it did on my old computer.

I want to include all of my contacts in the address book that appears on the Outlook toolbar. Can anybody tell me how to do it? Thanks.

So basially I can't view the properties for a contact twice. It's almost as though it thinks the properies box is still open. This is happening to all users. After this occurs when a user closes out Outlook, Outlook.exe process keeps running and uses over 90% of cpu. We are not using cache mode in Outlook.

I have tried disabling all the Outlook Add-ins to see if a third party add-in was causing the issue. I have tried re-creating the profile and reparing Outlook. I tried downloading a copy of the Global address list. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

I had some major computer problems, as a result of which many of my programs lost their configuration information. One of the things I lost was my address book and saved messages in Outlook Express (Ver. 5.50). I'm pretty sure I didn't lose any data, just the ability of the program to find it.

Can anyone tell me where these files may be, what they could be called, and how to get them back into OE? I had my OE email divided into a number of folders, if that is important.

This is a story of two computers. The old one is a Dell and the replacement is an HP (also old - but works fine).
My Dell desktop quit working recently. Discussions on a hardware forum indicated possible motherboard failure. The Dell had two hard drives. The C Drive with the OS (Win 7) and Office 2010 (email with Outlook 2010) and the D Drive with all my personal files.
To make sure I preserved the hard drives I obtained an adapter, took the hard drives out, read them both with my laptop, so both drives are fine.
I located a used HP desktop from which its hard drive had been removed. I hooked up my D Drive to the HP and installed Windows 7 and Office 2010. All of my personal files remained intact.
I set up Outlook 2010 which automatically found my two email accounts but my address book and contacts list did not appear.
I still have my Dell's C Drive hooked to my laptop. The C Drive from my old Dell still has the Windows 7 OS and Office 2010.
I've located two places on the C Drive that appear to have Outlook files:
Users - Me - AppData - Local - Microsoft - Outlook
Users - Me - AppData - Roaming - Microsoft - Outlook
I don't know how to read those files, I don't know if my address book and contents are in there and, if they are, I have no idea how to retrieve them.
Even if they aren't in those folders they've got to be somewhere on the drive that has the OS and Office.
What do I do next?

I have been working on this problem for days now.

I reinstalled Windows 98 using my rescue disks. Internet Explorer is working fine (so I think ).

My problem is Outlook Express 5.00
I been researching different tech sites as well as the Microsoft site.
Some of the fixes I've tried seem to cause other problems.

I finally found the symptons on the Microsoft site. It lists the same error messages I'm getting:

Unable to open address book. The address book is not installed correctly.
An error occurred while attempting to open the address book file.
The address book failed to load. Outlook Express is incorrectly configured. Please reinstall.
When you open a new message, you may receive the following error message:
There is an error opening this message. An error has occurred.

The site lists the steps to fix it but the last step says to Reinstall Outlook Express 5.0 --Okay - this is where I'm going to sound totally stupid - but where do I find Outlook Express 5.00 to reinstall it?

Isn't Outlook Express part of Windows 98?

(background info) Two weeks ago, my computer crashed. I couldn't get anything to work. I made the decision to reinstall using my HP Pavilion Recovery Disk that came with my computer.
Sooo - do I have to wipe out the whole system again just to reinstall Outlook Express?

Please help - this has been driving me nutty! Thanks

(2) I go to Tools > Account Settings > Address books and "Outlook address book" does not appear under Name. I follow the directions for adding one, exit Outlook, and wait for a few minutes before restarting.

I have over 13 years of Outlook Express folders and addresses that I desperately need to convert to Outlook 2007. I should have imported them into Outlook before I made the "Easy File Transfer" to the new Win 7 machine, but didn't know I needed to do that. Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.

The up-to-date data is still in my old machine and also in an external hard drive backup. I have isolated the Outlook Express personal folders into .dbx format and the addresses into .wab format.

Is there a way this can be reformatted into Outlook? Or is there some other way? I would probably also need to delete what is already in Outlook first, or I would have many more duplicates.

I welcome any suggestions.

I have been using Outlook 2007 for some time (contents were entered manually on new laptop and not transferred from old system) the address book and Contacts worked perfectly for a while then all of a sudden the address book went blank. Contacts are still OK.

I have looked through various threads but to no avail.

Any help, greatly appreciated.

I recently got a new HP laptop with Vista/Outlook 2007 (coming from XP & Outlook 2003). My email & Contacts imported nicely to the new computer but my Address Book is blank. I tried right clicking on the Contact folder but the option "show this folder as an email address book" is greyed out.

Also, Internet Explorer says "Internet Explorer has stopped working" each time I launch it and the only fix I've found is to reset it to default settings each time I launch it. Very annoying! Any ideas on how I can fix this? Is it a known Vista problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Outlook 2007 imported Contact Folders but no Address Book?

Hello everyone,
I am asking for help on one particular problem.
If you could spare some time here is my question:
- I run Win7 Ultimate and Outlook 2007.
- I enter my hotmail address into Outlook Connector, so Hotmail is my default message handler in Outlook. Every thing runs normally until I discover that I cannot sync my Contacts with my iPhone, either with iTunes or with MobileMe, although the "Contacts" folder in Outlook contains 300+ names.
After some investigation I found some explanation:
- The Contacts displayed in the Contacts folder of Outlook are from my hotmail address book (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED), and the Outlook contact book is empty!!! No wonder that the result of the sync is nil, because the only option in the sync procedure is to sync Contacts with Outlook.
In order to sync my contacts with my iPhone I think that I need to Move/Copy/Import all the contacts from (contacts in EMAIL REMOVED) to the Outlook Address book.
I don't know if it is possible or not.
Could you tell me?
All inputs are appreciated.
Thank you

Well, you can copy/paste them by doing Select All (CTRL-A) on the Hotmail contacts list in Outlook, then Copy (CTRL-C), then switch to the Outlook contact book and Paste (CTRL-V). That should hold you over until a little later this summer when Hotmail adds official support for wireless iPhone contact syncing via the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.

Hope that helps!
