Importing Calendar and Contacts from Outlook 2016 to Windows 10 Mail

Q: Importing Calendar and Contacts from Outlook 2016 to Windows 10 Mail

I have Outlook 2016 installed as part of Office on my Windows 10 computer and would like to import the 2016 contacts and calendar to the Windows 10 Mail app. I have searched to web for instructions for doing so but have not found an answer. I intend to use the Mail app on a W10 machine without Office installed.

Can this be done and how do I go about doing it?

Thank you very much.

I found the tutorial in this forum called, "How to Import Windows Contacts into Outlook 2010." It all looked very much like Outlook 2016, so I followed the same steps to import my Contacts list from Windows 7 Contacts to Outlook 2016. Everything seemed to go okay, but I cannot find them in Outlook. Is there a different process to use for importing Windows Contacts to Outlook 2016? Maybe I don't know where to look for them, but there is nothing there when I try to open the Address Book in Outlook 2016. Is there another place where I should look? Thanks!

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using Outlook.com and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from Outlook.com using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her Outlook.com account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her Outlook.com account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.

https://support.office.com/en-us/art...7-76d60b148b23
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her Outlook.com account, then you may need to generate an app password from her Outlook.com account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

A widespread problem? My Outlook 2016 Mail is performing normally in Windows 10 and syncing mail with my phone. However...I cannot sync my calendar or contacts into my Lumia 735. I get hints (nothing specific) from online searching that since my service provider (Time Warner) doesn't use MS Exchange, that the syncing can't be done. Can anyone verify that?
My mail is transferred cleanly, but contacts and calendar won't come over to the phone.

I am importing an Outlook 2016 generated .CSV contact list into a webmail email account but keep receiving the following error.

Unknown error for item "(Unknown)": Could not parse csv file - Reason : missing column name for column[92]

There are 92 columns and each one has a column name. 92 columns is what Outlook 2016 generates, most columns are empty, just the name. I had previously tried deleting columns with no data but still got the same error, and always for the last column.

Is there a trick to get this contact list imported successfully? I am trying to create a whitelist filter to reject all email where the FROM name isn't in my contact file. My .CSV file contains 162 rows.

Hi,

I've read the other threads regarding my problem, but still can't figure out what to do. I backed up my files before installing Windows 7, and have an "Outlook Express" folder. However, I can't figure out how to import the contacts I had saved in my address book in Outlook. The Outlook files are in .dbx format, so I am unable to open them.

Does anyone know how I can even access the files so I can see my contacts and copy them down? Importing them would be ideal, but I'll take whatever I can get.

Thanks!

Windows 10 running Outlook 2016. When I did a fresh install I set up 3 email address and added my .csv files of contacts and calendar form prior install. I did not pay attention and Outlook 2016 assigned them to an email address I now wish to get rid of.

Did a web search and didn't come up with a good reliable way to transfer the folder to another email address PST file. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

Greetings,

I need help importing or associating .pst data with a profile. Actually I'm not sure if importing the .pst is the right way to do it.

Details: My old computer crashed. Someone gave me a new one (new to me at least). Running XP Home on a Toshiba laptop. I have installed Office 2002 XP and am interested in re-populating Outlook 2002 XP.

I had a million problems with getting my mail settings working. Along the way, I made a new Profile by way of Start, Control Panel, Mail and Bingo! All mail settings were healed! But with a new, empty profile.

Now I have two profiles! One is called "Outlook" which has contacts, an Inbox with many sub-folders, sent mail, etc. But the mail settings do not work. I get "Operation Failed" and the test e-mail settings fails to authenticate. ANYway, the "Outlook" profile is populated and has bad mail settings. (Took about 12 hours to import this data.)

The other that I made is "Carl 52," but it's essentially empty except for the fresh e-mail it successfully accepted from my e-mail accounts. I just backed this profile up as a .pst file in order to save the mail after whatever brilliant ideas I get and try....lol...

My current challenge is to somehow import all the stuff (mail, contacts, Inbox and sub-folders) into the "Carl 52" profile, either from the "Outlook" profile, or from the 6 month old .pst file. WITHOUT messing-up my now working e-mail settings. Then per... Read more

Hi swarfega,

Have a look at the following webpage for details on exporting Thunderbird address book files: Export Thunderbird's Address Books and Contacts. Select a format that is compatible, i.e. CSV or LDIF. Save the files in their converted form. I suggest that you give them a slightly different name. Alternatively, backup the original files to removeable media prior to converting them. To import the files into Windows Mail, click on 'File', highlight 'Import' and click on 'Windows Contacts...'. Click either 'CSV (Comma Separated Values)' or 'LDIF (LDAP server)' and then click on 'Import'.

How can I import them to Windows Live Mail while keeping them all organized as they were in Windows Mail on Vista? If I have to manually organize them again it will be an endless task.

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

A:Importing Contacts from Vista to Windows Live Mail in Windows 7

Welcome to the Seven Forums, GAN.

In WLM the contacts are located in C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\Default\15.5 but the Folder may appear empty unless the Protected O.S Files are unhidden.

As you were using WLM on the old Vista Computer you should copy the contacts file in this folder and you shall have all your contacts in W 7 WLM.

Alternately if you have the old .wab file preserved somewhere then you can browse to it via the Import Tab by clicking on Windows Address Book and import your contact.

The third method is to export your existing contacts as a .csv file and then import it to WLM in a like manner.

Good luck.

I got instructions off Microsofts site on how to transfer my contacts list but it involved "the cloud" which I can't be bothered with, I want things on MY computer thank you! And I don't want an outlook.com account.

So using Windows explorer I went to the Windows Mail folder and double clicked a file (forgot the name now) it opened up the import files box (like other Windows incarnations has given us) and I selected import CSV file and directed the application to the flash drive upon which my 'old' CSV file was stored.

I noticed the WAB file, in the same folder, suddenly increased in size to 568k so obviously the import was successful, however on going into the Mail app, I'm told I have no contacts!

what has happened to them? And how do I import then - manually

If you pound google, you will find numerous methods. If one doesn't work, move on to the next. I do recall that it is a hit and miss affair, so be prepared to experiment.

Primary advice: be sure you have multiple copies of your DBX folders and keep one copy of each folder safe and unaltered. Try the various methods you discover on a copy of the DBX folders.

Hi all
This is quite a complex operation and MS doesn't actually explain how to do it so here goes.

The trick is to get your email messages into Outlook Express (OE on XP) or Windows Mail (on Vista) before you can import into Windows Live mail. Then the import can be done directly.

There isn't any way currently to import mail directly from Outlook to Windows Live Mail so you have to do it indirectly BEFORE installing Windows 7.

1) even if you don't use Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (VISTA) you need to have them running on the same machine as your copy of OUTLOOK.

2) create (if you haven't already) email accounts in OE or Windows mail identical to those you have in Outlook.

3) Now import your messages from Outlook into OE or Windows Mail.

4) Change the Store Identity in OE or Windows mail to a disk that your W7 can read (do this under Maintenance - data storage locations in OE or Windows Mail).
Doing this saves you having to install Live Mail on Vista or XP

5) Logon to your W7 system and install Windows Live mail.

6) Set up your email accounts

7) File ==> import==>messages

8) Chose Outlook express or Windows mail depending on step 3)

9) Browse to the directory where you stored the messages in step 4)

10) Job done.

A bit fiddly but obviously MS don't want to make it easy for people to switch from Outlook

Note also the "Send and Receive" function is calles "SYNC" in Windows Live mail -- confusing but there it is.

Hi,

I am having difficulty importing excel data into a contact list. Perhaps you can help me with my immediate problem or my overall goal.

The immediate problem: It makes a new contact for every piece of data. So, for instance, I would like to import one contact for every contact in the excel sheet. For every contact, I would like to put their administrative role, such as "Chapter President." I have mapped that to "Department," as shown in this screenshot. When Outlook makes the contact file, rather than make one contact with one person's first name, last name, and administrative role as department, it makes a new contact for every chapter admin, with no other detail than "Chapter Admin." It also makes one contact for every first name with not other details - so there are like, three "Julies" with no other information. What is happening?



Overall goal (all I want to do!): At the very least, I would like to email every contact from the excel spreadsheet at once. Ideally, I would like to be able to email all my "Chapter Presidents" at once, or all the parents of all these students at once, or all the students and parents at a certain high school at once. But it seems as though to add a new contact I will have to add a new contact one-by-one, since they are not already in my global address list. That is infeasible with hundreds of contacts total.

We have a dual platform environment, and when we import any contacts, the format it selects is "Always send in MS rich text format".

The problem is, when you send to certain people with RTF it sends a file called winmail.dat. We found out to fix this we need to turn off RTF formatting.

So we turned off RTF in the places we know about (listed below) and it is still sending in RTF, when we need it to send in HTML or plain text in order to keep attachments. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Ways we changed it:

Tools > Options > Mail Format > selected HTML, as well as under internet formatting we also chose convert to HTML.

In contacts, when you click on the email and the email properties box shows up, we changed it in there.

Is there any other way to change it, or choose which one is the default. I am so lost and this is causing me a pile of troubles.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I'm currently using WLM as my email client with my ISP's email account and not signing in to my MSN account.

I can import contacts and the like but their birthdays don't appear in the Calendar unless I sign into MSN and then only the contacts' birthdays' that I have in MSN appear in the Calendar.

So if I don't want to use my MSN account with WLM then I have to create the Birthday calendar manually...

This is my gripe with WLM, it "encourages" the end user to use a Live mail account or all the features in WLM don't work.

If I'm wrong about this could someone explain how to get non MSN contacts birthdays to appear in WLM calendar.

Thanks

My system is an HP Presario laptop, Pentium R, 1.8 ghz, 3.0 ram, 170 gigs using Vista Home Premium.

I just put in a new hard drive and decided to move from windows mail to outlook 2007. Before windows mail i was on outlook express for years so i have hundreds of message folders, many within other folders.

Outlook is importing the top level folders and anything that might be in them. It's also listing the lower level folders, but there's no messages in them. I've tried the import twice, but it's not working. When I check the folders in Windows mail, all the messages are there, they're just not moving over.

Any suggestions on this, or where I might go for advice? Thanx...

I am trying to replicate my Comcast email service that I use on a desktop to a laptop. It runs in Windows Live Mail. I do not have a Windows Essential account nor do I want one.

I have downloaded WLM and installed in the laptop. Comcast runs fine but of course I am missing my contacts. I have exported the contacts from the desktop to a csv file and moved the file to the laptop. When I import that file, it only records in WLM 79 of the 649 records that are in the csv file (I looked). During the inport, I checked the mapping and all fields matched perfectly.

Both machines are running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit on desktop, 32 bit on laptop) and IE9 browser.

Please advise. Thanks.

A:Importing csv file into Live Mail misses over half of contacts

SeattleRust,

A workaround would be to create multiple (10?) csv files from your original and import each separately. Not pretty, but it might isolate one bad entry causing the difficulty. If you get a partial import on any of the csv files, you can whittle it down in a similar fashion (creating multiple files from the 'broken' one)

Who knows - maybe there's a character problem hiding or a length is off. I also know that categories don't import - so perhaps there is an extraneous field that WLM doesn't like.

At least you'll have more than 79 contacts out of 649.

Good luck.

Peace!

I am having a bit of a mare with outlook. I have my main POP3 email address plus a Hotmail acc (lesser used) setup in it. Obviously my POP3 is my main default acc I always use. But when I go to my contacts list (setup in business card display) it always defaults to my Hotmail contacts. This is annoying as the contacts I want to view first is my POP3 contacts. I cannot see how to change it?

Also the Hotmail acc (which outlook has setup as an exchange acc is constantly saying 'updating address book' at the bottom. Can I fix / stop this?

Hello

I am helping a non-profit organization with their email - they are trying to export from 2003 into 2007.

The 2003 contacts contain sub folders that we imported to 2007 as a .pst file through the import function.

The contact folders show up as separate folders under contacts, but are not available to select from when sending a new email. The contacts folder is available, but not the subfolders.

Is there a fix?

Trying to import my address book from Outlook Express 6 into another computer with Outlook Express 6. The problem I'm having is I have my original address book divided up into different folders....each folder representing a different type of client. For instance, one folder for new clients; another for prospective clients; one for old clients, etc. In importing, all the contacts appear to import, but only into 1 general folder. The individual folders (new clients; prospective clients; old clients, etc.) don't show up so all my contacts are lumped together into a "Main Identities Contacts" folder, so I have no idea what type of client each one is since they aren't importing into their specific file folders. Is there some way to import my contacts where, once imported, my address book will look identical to the address book that contains the original contacts with all the appropriate file folders reflected? If it helps, I'm using Windows XP Home Ed. HELP! The reason I'm doing this is my old computer is really messed up. Probably will need to have it wiped clean and can't afford to lose my address book, but if all the contacts are just lumped together, it will be useless to me.

Hi,
I am trying to import Contacts from an Excel sheet into Outlook 2000. I have created the Excel sheet according to the required Outllok 2000 format. I have an additional field "EXTENSION" (which contains the extension number to the Phone # of a contact). This "EXTENSION" field is not available by default in Outlook 2000, so I created a User Defined Field in Outlook.
The problem is that I am not able to Map the "EXTENSION" field from the Excel sheet to the field that I have created in Outlook coz it doesnot appear in the available fields when I try to map the fields.
Can any one tell me how I can import the "EXTENSION" field.

I have had exactly the same problem importing. I have a vendor database of 1000 vendors. I created a searchable "Keyword" column to import into Outlook. Outlook shows Keywords in the Outlook map, but there is no real field if you check a contact form. So I tired other fields. Since I have no other use for "Assistant"s Name ( who has assistants these days?) I used it because it worked. So, Now I select the database, click on Tools|Advanced Find|Advanced Tab|Name Fields| Assistant's Name. I enter the search word in "Values", click "Find Now", click yes to the next dialogue box, and up come my results. It is really a lot simpler and quicker than it sounds, because I do it alot.

So, just find a field that will work and that you do not need for something else.

I have Office 365 on a desktop and am having trouble importing a Contacts list I exported a few days ago. Am using Outlook 2016 on Windows 7.

If I import the csv file, the contacts/address book are all blank. I looked at the csv file under Excel and it is blank until way down the sheet and then it contains some incomplete very old no longer wanted items. They look like they might have come from a deleted list some time ago.

I then emptied the deleted item folder and exported contacts again. The csv file viewed by Excel was blank. No sign of the old contacts.

What do I need to do to get contacts export/import to work?

Oddly enough, I have much the same set up on a laptop and it works just fine. In fact I used the laptop's csv file to import to the desktop and that worked. But when I exported the contacts to a csv file, Excel showed that file to be blank as above.

I will appreciate help in resolving this.

Thank you.

A:Trouble importing exported Outlook contacts

I have been having the same problem with Outlook 2013. Previously I had my email account set up as a POP3 account & my contacts were all showing in my address book. This has worked for a couple of years without any problems.

Last week my IP changed their email account system & I had to set up a new IMAP email account & while that worked for sending & receiving emails, I had lost the address book contacts, as it was all blank. I did find some contacts after I had imported them from Outlook's Address Book in Outlook Files. However, these were not in the address book, they were in Contacts that can be found by selecting People in Outlook & there you will find Contacts. This had about half of my contacts, which I actually think came from an old contact list I had.

The only way i have been able to get the address book to work & showing all my contacts is to revert to the old email POP3 system & change all the details there to suit my IP's latest account settings, as they do allow either POP3 or IMAP to be used. As I don't need my emails to be found & viewed on other media, I have no need for an IMAP account.

Are you using a POP3 or an IMAP account system?. Is your PC email system the same as your laptop one. As I mentioned above you could check People when in Outlook & see what are found in your Contacts.

Do you have iCloud Contact sync enabled on your iPhone. Note that if you do, iTunes will say that contacts were synced but like in your case, no contacts will appear within your Outlook. iCloud Contact sync and Outlook sync via iTunes do not go together.

You can alternatively export your iPhone contacts to outlook using third-party tools such as copytrans contacts:

I've imported several times with different results and finally figured out the "name the range" rule and to save the Excel worksheet in the 97-2003 format. I also selected 'Do not enter duplicates" and then mapped out the entries.

After importing, I had 10 contact with just the first names, an additional 10 contacts with just last names, another 10 with just email addresses, etc. I don't understand why it would think that each column was a different set of contacts.....

I would GREATLY appreciate your help.

My pda does not support the remote connection, so that is not possible directly. Besides the RDC, we have web Outlook, on which I can get my email, contact, calendar... everything... through the web, without connecting to the server through the RDC. I have set up a pop3 account to download the email to my hard drive, but this is not what I want to do. I keep far too many emails and would just as soon not download them, since all I want downloaded are my calendar and contacts so I can sinc it with my pda. I don't even care that I could not upload from my pda. All I want to do is to get my up-to-date calendar onto my pda, so when I go to meetings I have it with me. It is ok, if I have to enter new calendar items directly through the RDC and not upload from my pda.
The question is...can I download my calendar and contacts through a pop3 account, or otherwise??? Also, is there a way to do that without downloading the emails?

I updated from Win 7 to 10 back during the crunch week ("last chance" week), and later discovered that my Outlooks 2016 contacts had gone missing. Blank. Nothing.

I have all of them on my iPhone. Can I use that to recreate my contacts?

I was using Outlook 2007 calendar and sync with google in my old computer. It worked fine. I did not successfully backup the outlook. Now, I am suing a new computer with vista. I am trying to sync google calendar with my outlook. It always pops this message out error:2016. I checked the error message online. It reads, "This error displays if you try to sync your events before signing up for Google Calendar. Please log in to Google Calendar at least once before using Google Calendar Sync." However, I tried logging in before I am doing sync, but it is still not working. Same error message pops up, always.

Hello All!
I am having a heck of a time importing email messages from Vista Windows Mail. This is my situation: I have a new laptop with Windows 7, I have Outlook 2007 installed on it. I have backed up data from the old hard drive using an IDE to USB cable and Cobian Backup Black Moon Edition. When I try to import the address book and the messages, it imports the address book, but not the messages. Can anyone help me to figure out another way to do this, or if there are other settings that I need to change in order to make this happen.
 

A:Need help importing email messages into Outlook 2007 from Windows Mail Files

It is best to export the messages from Winmail, then import them into Outlook.

Not sure how you backed up your Winmail.

I was using a Windows XP desktop and Outlook Express 6 exclusively for my emails. It was set up to do automatic nightly backups of all messages by copying the following folder:

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express


Yesterday the hard drive on that XP machine crashed and now I'm trying to set up a new desktop that is running Windows 10 pro.
My main goal is to set up a mail program that will allow to import all of my emails from Outlook Express that also works in a similar fashion. (In other words that Metro mail app that Windows 10 has would not work!)
So I downloaded Windows Live Mail 2012 and went to File -> Import -> Messages -> Outlook Express 6 and specified a copy of the folder above.
Unfortunately when the importing process was done, first of all the inbox was empty. Eventually I was able to find it buried in a storage folder. Well, inconvenient, but OK. But then when I pulled it up, I could not recognize my messages. It seemed like a big chunk of them was missing.
Unfortunately I don't have access to the Outlook Express on a computer that crashed. Instead I had an old copy in a VM that was done back in Sept. 2015. So I did the same exporting process just to test. Here's how the inbox looks like in Outlook Express:


And here's how it looks when I import it into WLM:


As you see a bunch of messages are missing and the inbox itself looks totally different.

I have bought a new computer with Windows 7 preinstalled. Before setting it up I backed up all my outstanding emails (204 .dbx files) and email addresses (one .wab file size 176kb) from my old computer on to a memory stick. I now want to import them into Windows Live Mail. I have gone through the recommended procedure for the emails, but only some of them have come across. I have been totally unable to import the addresses. The only procedures I have found seem to relate to a different version of Live Mail because they tell me to click on things that don't appear on my screen! Can anyone help?

It occurs to me that maybe not all the messages are being imported because I haven't imported the relevant contact details. Could this be the case?

By the way I can't go back to the old computer as it has completely died, which is why I replaced it.

I have been trying without success to export Outlook express mail from an XP computer into Windows live Mail on a brand-new Windows 7 HP computer. I have followed the directions on the Internet to copy the Outlook express mail folder onto a flash drive. The directions I followed were to go to Outlook express, click on tools, options, maintenance, store folder. Then copy store location, go to start menu, click run. Then when the Outlook express folder opens with the DBX files, I copied the entire folder to a flash drive.
I have followed the directions on the Internet to copy the Outlook express mail folder onto a flash drive. I go into Windows live Mail import and follow the prompts. It acts like it is copying the DBX folders, however when it is finished there are no e-mails in the imported folder. I have tried over and over and have no luck. I have no idea where the e-mails are or if they are actually available. What am I doing incorrectly?
Please help with more detailed instructions. Thanks.

Trying to recover Outlook contacts and calendar from a HDD that cannot boot. therefore the .pst file cannot be exported. Is there a way to get the .pst and .ost files without actually running the Outlook program? And about a week ago, Outlook froze up; not receiving any new emails, unable to delete the old emails in the Inbox, and unable to clear the Deleted folder. Any ideas?

Sometimes the hard drive is too defective to retrieve any files. Often a "hardware" and/or a "software" method can be used to retrieve some or many files that were not backed up for some reason. The "hardware" way is to install the hard drive into a USB enclosure and connect it to another computer. The "software" way is to boot to a "rescue disk" (CD, DVD or USB flash drive). My choice is Puppy Linux.

Suddenly I can't open my calendar or contacts in Outlook 2007. Have been using this software for several months. Can open mail and notes folders but not the other two above. When I click the folder the hand sign comes on and the screen freezes. If I try to open another folder the screen goes white and hangs. I have to start Task manager to shut the session down. Only recent changes are MS updates from the web but can't see any problems there. No error messages appear and all other programs run OK. Other recent change was upgrading virus software to Norton 360. Ops system is Vista Home Premium. Have searched MS website for a fix and this site. Can anyone suggest a fix.

I am going to show a way de share calendar or contacts between two or more users.
I suppose that users have each one his laptop with Microsoft outlook installed.
The steps are:
1) Download "ShareFoders" software from this site: http://www.unitedteam1.com
2) Install on each laptop the "ShareFolders" software.
3) Start Microsoft Outlook.
4) An assistant appear to set up the initials values.(Accept the default values)
4) The "Share Folders" button appear in outlook's bar tool
5) To share for example calendar folder:
- Click in "ShareFolders" button
- Select calendar folder
- Select with who to share
- Click in "Share selected folder" button
6) An invitation window appear in the guest's outlook, if the guest accept the invitation an email of acceptation will be sent to origin
7) from this moment all the appointments will be synchronized between the two outlook.

I will be able to log on under my log-on, but I am able to see other user's calendar or contacts. (shared)

Hi you guys. Me again. I moved your post because Outlook is part of MS Office.

Are you on an Exchange Server or not? Is it installed with CW (Corporate Workgroup) or IMO (Internet Mail Only). If you're unsure, hit Help-About.

Sorry, but the answer depends a great deal on those questions.

I'm setting up a new(er) PC and migrating my software and files from the old (PC1) to the new one (PC2). Both have Outlook 2003 on them. Both are running XP Home SP2.

Last night I copied all of the *.pst files (Outlook.pst, Contacts.pst, Archive.pst, etc) from the PC1 folder to the equivalent folder on PC2. When I opened up OL2003 on PC2 this morning it read my full Outlook.pst files with the standard Inbox and whatever folders I haven't yet set up as archive folders. It did not read my Contact folders (have two separate ones - personal and work) and it did not show any of my archive folders that do show on the folder tree on PC1.

I have spent endless time today attempting to import these various folders in every way I can think of and "... 'nuttin' works..." from an import perspective. I've got full access to both HDD's, etc, (PC's sitting here on my desk).

The supposed process is (from PC2) to highlight "Personal Folders", then File/Import and Export/Import from another program or file/Next/Personal Folder File (.pst)/(Browse to Outlook folder on PC1)/Contacts_C.pst/(choose 'Replace duplicates..."/Next/... and then it gives you the choice "Choose folder to import 'from', yet it shows you the new folder "Contacts_C" as a new folder on the Personal Folder tree on PC2...????... /Import, blah, blah.../Finish. It appears to do its magic, but...
