How to Transfer Outlook 2007 PST to 2010


The decision to switch or upgrade email clients is a weighty one. Not only do you have to consider which features of a new program are worth the upgrade, but also whether you can transfer existing email accounts into the new client. Microsoft's Outlook series of email programs saves account and email information in the form of a PST (or .pst) file, a personal folder file. PST files can be exported from one version of Outlook and imported into another. If you use Outlook 2007 and want to transfer files to Outlook 2010, you can do so by exporting your PST file.
