    Migrating to Outlook 2003 from Outlook Express

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a way we could migrate all our users (and emails & contacts etc) from outlook express to the Outlook 2003 that we're deploying, without them all having to manually go file > import etc?

    Thanks

    Rob

    OE stores its data in the profile so i guess if you find a way to automate it its going to be run by the users say as they login.. i doubt it would be centrally possible. are you going to exchange or just using outlook instead of OE

    hmm I was thinking something like that perhaps, we're just having alsorts of trouble with it; seems like its just not really designed for this. We're just going over to outlook rather than OE; can't afford an exchange server yet (hopefully soon though!)

    thanks for your input!

    by default outlook also burries its PST (mailbox file) deep in the APPDATA profile too but at least in outlook you can reconfig this and move it some where more sensible.
