MS Outlook: Migration

less than 1 minute read


If you want to move Outlook from one workstation to another, follow these steps.

To Resolve:

  1. Backup your “.pst” file.

  2. On the new workstation, copy those files to the same directory and make sure you rename it to something unique. Start Outlook, go through the prompts of setting up a new email, this will create a new “.pst” default file => that’s okay.

  3. Once setup, go ahead and go to File => open => and open your old “.pst” file. Outlook will populate it in it’s list of accounts.

  4. Go to Account Settings => Click on your email account => Change Folder => change it to your old account’s name and your done. Delete the default account completely.
