    I need help with Outlook in my old and new computers. I think my .pst files are corrupted in my old computer and I have "lost" old emails and my contacts. I am also having trouble setting up outlook and importing my old addresses into a new Dell. If you have the skills to help, please let me know.

    Not sure which version of Outlook you are using, but there is a tool called Scanpst.exe that can repair .pst and .ost files. There is an article on it's use here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287497. As far as moving your old email addresses, once you move the .pst files to the new machine Outlook should find your contacts and allow you use those contacts for email addresses.

    Thanks Wardie. I tried Scanpst and it did not work. I finally broke down and bought a repair program. I recovered all my emails and more. Once that was done I was able to transfer it to the new computer.
