Chapter 9. Outlook Essentials > Importing and Exporting Outlook Information

Importing and Exporting Outlook Information

You can also use the Import and Export Wizard to transfer data between Outlook and other programs. The most common use of this feature is to help you migrate your data to Outlook from a contact-management program such as ACT! or Lotus Organizer. If the Import and Export Wizard doesn't include the specific name and version number of the program you use, you need to export the data to a delimited text file or a database format and then import it into Outlook.

Tip from

If you use multiple Personal Folders files to maintain your mail, use the Import and Export Wizard to effortlessly move items from one file to another. Choose File, Import and Export, and then select Export to a File or Import from Another Program or File. In either case, you'll find a Personal Folders File (.pst) option. Follow the wizard's prompts to select the folder or folders you want to move—defining a filter if necessary, so you move only items that match criteria you specify—and choose the name of the destination file.
