Advice? Any one done moving an IMAP 2003 account to New PC with Office 2010
Have replaced a laptop for a user who has IMAP account on XP with Outlook 2003 but have replaced with a Windows 7 laptop with Outlook 2010.
Been looking around on internet for instructions on how to move account to new PC but no one seems to be giving clear consistent advice.
Some advice is saying to export to PST file. As it's IMAP I'm worried about synchronization back to the server mucking things up. Not much experience with IMAP.
Also don't think will have much time to do the move :-( .

I haven't done this, other then on my own personal PC at home, however as it's IMAP why not just recreate the account and have it synchronise all the email down to the new computer again?
Apart from the initial synchronisation (which Outlook 2012 should carry out in the background anyway), it shouldn't cause any huge problems.
The only thing you might then need to move is the local PST file for the Sent Mail/Drafts which are stored locally on the machine unless you configured Outlook to store them in the relevent folders on the IMAP server.
