If you have the PST file that you recovered, copy it to your new computer, somewhere like Documents\Old Outlook\ so you'll know where it's at...then rename Outlook.pst to Outlook2010.pst (example).

Now in Outlook, choose File->Open->Outlook Data File

..navigate to your Outlook2010.pst file, and then it and all the old data should appear in the tree view in Outlook.
