Office Standard 2007 Upgrade & Outlook Email

Guest

I currently have Office Standard 2000 and plan to upgrade to Standard 2007.
My email is received through Outlook. Will all the inbox email and those
saved in various folders in Outlook still be there after upgrading?

Yes, but as always when upgrading, make a backup of your .pst file.

In addition to what Milly says, while you can continue to use the existing
PST. consider creating a new PST, make it your delivery location, and
migrate your existing data to it.

Thanks both to Milly and Brian. I checked about saving my .pst files, and
have to download the add-in from Microsoft. I have Office 2000, but Windows
XP, so Microsoft wouldn't validate because the Office is older than the XP.
(Computer came loaded with ME - got rid of that bug-filled mistake after a
year.) Have to find another route to save all my inbox and special folder
files.

All you need to do is close Outlook, then copy the .pst file. No add-in is required - simply copy the .pst file to a safe location such as a thumb drive or an external hard drive.

You don't HAVE to download the add-in. You can back up your PST easily
without it. Just copy the PST while Outlook is closed. That's essentially
what the Personal Folders Backup does anyway.

Thanks again to Milly and Brian, just help me a little more. You both said
close Outlook and copy the .pst file. To be sure about this process (my
computer skills are average), I locate the Outlook.pst files on the hard
drive, then copy as I have done for other folders/files on my thumb drive,
correct? Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, just ensure that Outlook is COMPLETELY closed. Use Task Manager for this. If it is still resident in memory, it can corrupt the copy that you make.
