I'm currently using Office 2003 but want to update to 2007. Am I required to backup my info in Outlook or will the update automatically accept all my data (contacts, emails, etc)? Anything else I should know will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I am not sure if it is automatic on a fresh installation of 2007, but I know for sure that Outlook 2007 can import in data (contacts, emails, calendars, etc) from older versions of Outlook through the Import/Export tool. Back up your data for sure. Note, depending on how many emails, contacts, and other data you have in outlook, the files may be very large. And backing up as well as importing them into Outlook 2007 will take a bit of time.
I like to think I know a bit about computers, I apologize if my advice is not sound or clear. I try my best to give good answers.

As an FYI for those interested, though I couldn't believe 114 who viewed didn't know, the data was automatically imported.

Thank you Tim for your reply.
