    Okay, so i just got my new computer and i have to re-setup everything. I installed my old HD on this new computer and have it as my 3rd drive in the system. When i reinstall Outlook, is there a way that i can move over all my email/accounts and all that from my old outlook? I cant open up the old outlook to export anything, so what files do i need to grab or what do i need to do to get it resetup the way i had it? Any ideas?

    outlook is simply one big .pst file. Just do a search for .pst and move the biggest one(s). You may have a .pab file as well which is a personal address book, where as Contacts within Outlook are saved within the pst file.
