Hour 2. Outlook Configuration Basics > Using an Existing Personal Store

Using an Existing Personal Store

If you used Outlook previously, you might have an existing personal message store (PST) you'd like to use. But when you create a new profile in Outlook, it doesn't give you the opportunity to choose the message store to use—it creates a new one for you. You must go back into the menu and add your existing PST.

Outlook 2003 uses a new message store format that provides Unicode support and can exceed the 2GB limitation found in Outlook 97–2002 format. As a result, you should consider moving or importing the contents of your existing PST into the new PST that Outlook creates for you.

The exception is when you need to share the PST with older versions of Outlook. In that case, you'll want to keep using your existing PST.
