I have a few year's worth of e-mails with order confirmations, travel data, business communications, and archives going back an equally long period of time. If I buy Office 2007 Professional, how do I preserve all I currently have. Is there a export and restore function which exactly replaces the e-mails (current & archived), contacts, etc. Do I need to purchase the full version, or is it just as good to get the "upgrade" version? If I am accustomed to 2000, is it a good idea to even consider upgrading?

Thanks in advance for guidance.

If you are going to upgrade or perform a full install of a new version of Outlook its advisable to get those emails, contacts etc backed up.

This link shows you how to perform a backup of Outlook 2000 and what files to look out for.

If you are happy with your current version of Outlook is there a real need to upgrade? One consideration I would make would be if Microsoft still provide updates for your version of Outlook, these updates are really important to fix security flaws.

Hope that helps.
