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.

If you're not using exchange server see this outlook synchronization tutorial. Works for Outlook 2003 and older versions. In addition, see other outlook articles.
