I bought a new computer running Vista Home Prem x64 SP1 and installed Outlook 2007. My older computer (XP x32 SP2) has Outlook 2003. Both computers are connected in a home network. All my emails and address book are in Outlook 2003 outlook.pst file. How do I bring that outlook.pst (2003) into Outlook 2007, so that I could have all my emails and address book in Outlook 2007?
Right now in my Outlook 2007 my address book is practically blank.
Would appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hi, I forgot to mention that in Outlook 2007 under File ---> Import or Export, other mail programs are listed but not another Outlook.

It may be worth trying to export to a flash drive first then import into Outlook 2007.
[If nothing else works you could use copy & paste for your address book.]

The links below may be able to help you.
Please let us know how you go.

Hi JMH,
Thank you for the tip. The address book that I meant, is actually "contacts". I thought it was called address book (.wab file) as it was called in Outlook Express. In any case, I followed the 3rd link "how to manage .pst.." in your response and it worked. My "contacts" are all moved from the XP to the Vista-64.
I really appreciated your help. tanhs
