Need Help with .pst file transfer to Microsoft Office Outlook

Q: Need Help with .pst file transfer to Microsoft Office Outlook

Before I upgraded to Windows 8.1 I made a backup of my Microsoft Office Outlook Mail folder which was saved as a .pst file.  I have tried over and over to import this file into Microsoft Outlook.  My email works fine but I can't import any of my contacts.  I am not sure how to get these files imported.  Any assistance would sure be appreciated.

Good day,

I am attempting to transfer MS Outlook file from one computer to another. I have successfully transferred the file from the CD to the appropriate Outlook folder on my C drive. I then utilized the following steps: 1)open outlook 2) tools, services, (the services screen opens) add button, (the add services to profile screen opens) 3)select the personal folders from the drop-down and OK the create/open personal folder screen appears 4) select the appropriate file to be restored and click on the "open" button. At this point I receive an message that indicates that the file which I have chosen is "not a personal folders file". When I close this message it is followed by another message indicating "properties for this information service must be defined prior to use. In the past I have successfully completed an Outlook transfer but it appears that I am not doing something right this time around. It would be very much appreciated if anyone could assist me. Thank you.

Cannot open file: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Wrong Number.msg. the file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, etc. I right clicked properties on the folder and it shows a 7.6 MB file that should open with Microsoft Office Outlook. Does anyone know why this may happen?

When I sent a message and when I was using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, I had an option that enabled me to add a photo following or preceding my text. This option enabled me to put a photo in the text area and place text under or above the photo explaining the photo. I am now running Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 using Windows Home Premium 64 bit and I cannot find this option. If this is no longer an option, how can I place a photo in the text area and then follow with text explaining the photo? If this is not possible, I guess this new version is a downgrade!
Thanks in advance and I will appreciate an answer.

After much messing around I have discovered that if you use Windows 7 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' to set default programs for file types, it breaks the File Types selection within a given program (in my case Microsoft Office Picture Manager) and you are no longer able to use the program itself to set file types only the Windows 7 function. You can tick/untick file associations all day long within Microsoft Office Picture Manager and nothing gets associated/unassociated. The File Types option is basically broken. I have also noticed this occur with 7-zip which actually causes a more serious issue. By default .zip is not listed in the Windows 7 list of 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' window but is listed if you associate .zip with 7-zip's own file association option. BUT if you then subsequently use windows 7 to re-associate .zip with Windows Explorer, the .zip vanishes (because by default is is not listed), breaks 7-zips file association options and you can no longer associate .zip files with 7-zip, EVER. Basically I am curious as to why Windows 7 own file association options would break software's own internal file association options so badly to the point they are essentially useless and if there is a fix. I even tried completely reinstalling Microsoft Office and removing all references of it within the registry, no luck. Its not a big deal but I just found it odd that a fundamental piece of Windows 7 would harm the integrit... Read more

Had this error on a user's pc. Researched it here on the forum.
Found another thread with someone suggesting to use the following command to get it going:
Start->run..then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane"

This worked! The other thread has since been closed, but I wanted to reply and say WHY my users outlook suddenly started throwing out this error, because no one on the other thread was able to.

Turns out that my user had "accidentally" dragged their personal folder (containing 1000's of emails) into the "outbox".
Since the "outbox" folder is one to be used while an email is in the sending phase, it basically just shut down and wouldn't open for anything.

Luckily the command was able to get Outlook open and I was able to investigate what the user did to cause it.

Hope this info can help someone else.

Dear AllI am getting the above error when I try to open Outlook 2007 on Windows XP. There is a quick fix to this which is to run 'outlook.exe /resetnavpane', which I find from a quick internet search. However, this is a one time fix, and I am having to do it every single time that I boot up. Is there a more permanent fix to this problem - hopefully the fact that the above fix works will identify the root of the problem. If anyone knows this and can help I would be very grateful.

My friend just had her computer reformatted after a bad virus contamination. It is still running EXTREMELY slow but has at least been running correctly. She is running XP

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I hope this all makes sense.

Hi-
I'm trying to use the file transfer wizard that was pre-installed on my new Dell Dimensions E510 computer (to transfer files from old computer to new). It prompts me that I will also need to run the program on the old computer, either by creating a wizard disc or using the Windows XP disc (which I don't have b/c it was pre-installed). It says to create a discby inserting a blank, formatted disc into the new computer's disc drive. It then gives 4 options to choose from, however the option I want, to create a wizard disc in the following drive, is not highlighted. It won't allow me to burn another disc apparently, I can only choose I already have a windows disc, I will use the Windows XP cd, or I don't need a disc at all. WHY?! I already bought a usb/serial transfer cable to do this and I'm not sure why the software won't allow me to burn a disc. Any suggestions?!

On the Email tab, you should have (at least) one account listed.

Click the "More Settings" button
Go to "Outgoing Server" tab
Put checkmark in "My Outgoing Server requires Authentication" (most ISP's require this to prevent spamming)
Leave the dot in "use same settings as logon server"

post any errors you get, but if you do get errors, try unchecking the "My Server requires authentication" first, and try again.

Hi EgoDogg

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

What Firewall are you using and is it allowing your messaging programs access to the Internet?

What antivirus program are you using and is it configured to scan your incoming messages?
Disable it to see if that makes a difference.

Are you using a Router?
Look for an internet viewer content restriction setting.
Check its configurations to see if POP3 access is allowed.

Here are a few links that may offer a solution:

My old laptop died and want to port my outlook contact list to my new laptop (Window7)
I pulled the old HD and installed it in a USB 2.0 device housing. The old drive is OK and have ported my excel files to my new laptop.What is procedure for transfering Outlook Contact file from old to new computer ?
 

A:Transfer Outlook Contact file

According to MICROSOFT the file you need to copy from the old hard-drive should be in a folder with a path like the following: "drive:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook" You need to replace "drive" with the drive letter (e.g. D) and "<user>" with your Windows user-name (e.g. Administrator). Then, just paste the file in folder of a similar path on the new hard-drive system partition. You may need to enable the "Show hidden files" option in "Folder Settings" in "Control Panel" in Start menu to be able to access those folders. Or follow the Microsoft guide step by step.

I originally had windows 98 with "Works". I typed an address data base for labels. I now use windows XP which doesn't have Works but does have Outlook. Can I transfer the addresses I have on a floppy to Outlook so I can still print labels?

I have used this program for several years with out any problems. This week, I suddenly can not open it. I get this error message: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook Window. The set folders could not be opened. The server is not available. Contact your administrator if the situation persists."
I have rebooted, defragged, rebooted again and no luck. How do I fix this and how did it happen? I would like to avoid this situation.

Hi, am wondering if any one can help me with this problem. Actually, there are 2 problems I need help with.

I am using Vista with office 2007. When the PC has been left on for a while, my email (outlook) won't open. Well, when I say it won't open, I mean it will open and load up the main template, but will disapear within about a second and close. When I place my curser on the icon in my task bar, that also disapears. This will happen until I re-boot the PC, and then it will work fine again.

Any ideas?

Also, I'm getting 4 random left mouse clicks every 30 seconds. Although these mouse clicks are not opening any thing, I'm getting th sound, plus it stops any typing that I may be doing. I'm using a logitech cordless mouse. I would tell you which model but that has rubbed off through the amount of browsing that I do, lol.

For Outlook, it is possible something is hanging - antivirus or anti-spam addin, or a module of the program itself, etc. I would first suggest checking your Task List (CTR+ALT+DEL) for additional instances of Outlook which would indicate the program is not closing properly.

You can try repairing your installation of Office, using the install CD. If that does not work, you can try disconnecting your computer from the Internet, and uninstalling both Office and your antivirus software. Reinstall Office first, then your antivirus. See if that fixes the issue.

My patience is running out with the bugs in Microsoft Office, and the company's apparent effort to force buyers of 2002 version to upgrade.

Any suggested alternatives, especially to replace the very cumbersome and buggy Outlook?

I highly recommend Zoho, which replaces virtually any Microsoft application for FREE. Only downside is these applications are all online, as opposed to offline software apps.
