I know this is probably easy but I was curious what the instructions are to convert 2000 .pst to 2003 to take advantage of the available space. I have a user who is working on the 2000 limit and need to upgrade.

Thanks in advance

A:Convert Outlook 2000 pst to Outlook 2003 pst

If you, or your user, are/is now using Outlook 2003, I would assume you could just copy the 2000 .PST file over to where your 2003 Outlook is running and then import it.

Due to some incompatability with 2003, I am thinking of installing an older version of outlook.

Will there be any problems with just installing it "on top" of office 2003?

Or should I uninstall office and then install Outlook 2000 1st, then custom install office 2003 without outlook? What about a different directory for each version? Kind of like what is required to install Access 97 and Access 200 on the same PC?

I need to save my MS Outlook Contacts from my PC at work (using Outlook 2003) to my PC at home (using Outlook 2000). I know how to use File> New> Outlook Data File> Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst)> OK to start, but that doesn't populate the new directory (or file or whatever it is) with the contacts.

How do I copy/paste, translate, whatever the contacts into that new directory?

I have been using the beta version of Office 2007 til it expired last month and during that time exported a back up of Outlook (contacts, calendar etc) to My Docs.
Not all that fussed with the '07 Office suite, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled Office 2002 but when I try to import the pst file to this earlier version of Outlook, it tellss me that it is not compatible and to contact the Administrator (me!).

If I cannot work around this somehow I intend laying on the railway tracks quite shortly as life without my files will no longer have any meaning to me!

I guess as a last resort I can download the latest trial of 2007 Office and see if that will let me re-import the backed up pst file but what a drama!

Hi TechGuys,

My difficulty is in the above Outlook 2003 software. I have kept a copy of the pst files as a backup, but unfortunately overwrote the good files with the backup files dated September 2012.

I'm running Outlook 2000 with SP3 applied:
I'm having no luck importing an outlook PST, which I created as a new data file in Outlook 2003. I created it as a 97-2000 compatible file.

when I go through the import process, it imports nothing at all... No error message, just empty folders.

This happens when I import from the local machine OR the server.

Is it possible the file is corrupt? Is there a way of checking?

I've successfully imported the 2003 version into another PC running Outlook 2003 - No problems there.. Just when trying to import the 97-2000 compatible file in to Outlook 2000

I think I know that this can't be done but just in case.......

In my previous company we used Office 2003 and before I left I saved my personal emails as a pst file.

In my new company we use Office 2000 and now I find it won't read Office 2003 pst files.

This is very annoying and there are emails I need.

Obviously I will need to find somebody with 2003 but why don't Microsoft provide a solution? They know about this issue but won't solve it.

Maybe there is a way and that's why I'm asking here.

It's so tempting to use a pirate copy just to get my emails back and then dump it.

HI , I am currently using Outlook 2003 at home, and there is Outlook 2000 at work. Current system is to schedule our jobs on the Outlook 2000 at work.

However, I have to work on these jobs and would like to bring that Outlook 2000 calendar from work (maybe by saving the file into my USB flash drive at the end of each day ) to home, so I can keep record and prepare for jobs the next day.

On my Outlook 2003 a home, I have my own calendar, in which I DO NOT want to add entries of the OL2000 from work into, I want to have them as two separate calendars with no relation to each other, and I want to bring home ONLY the calendar, no emails and all other stuff so it won't mess up with my own stuff at home.

I am quite positive that there is a way to achieve this, please help.

Our office is a small LAN, and we use Microsoft Exchange Server and Outlook 98. We just got new Windows 2000 workstations (file server did not change) and when setting them up tried upgrading to Outlook 2000. We could get our calendars and email to display, but it would not allow us to open the email or add new appointments, etc. We just get a message stating there is an error opening this item. Is there a permission problem somewhere we don't know about? Or does this data somehow need to be converted to Outlook 2000 format?

If we reinstall Outlook 98, everything is OK again. ???

A:Outlook 2003 - Problem after Upgrade/s

Just to make sure I understand: If there is an HTTP or HTTPS link in an email, when you click on it, File Explorer opens your Documents folder?

If that is the case, I'm not sure how an update would do that.
You might have a look at your Default App settings, to see what shows there:

Settings>System>Default Apps
Scroll down and select Choose Default Applications by Protocol

Scroll down the list on the left side, until you come to HTTP and HTTPS. On the right, your default app should be your browser (Edge, IE, Firefox, Chrome, or whatever you prefer to use).

Here's a video tutorial on setting default apps:

Our family used Office 2003 for years until a couple of years ago I purchased Home & Student 2010 Family Pak. I installed 2010 on all our computers except my son's PC I kept 2003 on it since he's blind and needed Outlook. He uses Outlook as his email and was trained on it several years ago using JAWs (screen reading software) so that's all he's ever used.

Since Office 2003 is no longer supported I need to uninstall it and install Office 2010 so I need to find him another email program similar to Outlook. I'm not crazy about upgrading to Office 365 Home Premium but would if there were no other choices.

Is the Outlook version that comes with 365 extremely different different from 2003?

It seems to be impossible to find or the price too high to upgrade to Outlook 2010. Would Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird be closer to his Outlook 2003?

A:Upgrade or change from Outlook 2003

I can't tell you whether Outlook 2003 is very different from Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013, as I have not used Outlook 2003.

As Windows Live Mail is free you could download a copy & try it out to see if it's suitable for your son.

If you go to Office 365 Home Premium you will get Outlook 2013. Does you Office 2010 Home & Student Family Pack have enough users to allow the additional installation on your son's computer, or have you used them all already.

When you send an e-mail or receive one from outlook, by default it looks for the person in your contacts and puts the display name up instead.

But when reading the e-mail it displays

John Doe [mailto:[email protected]]
To: Jane Doe

How do you get rid of the mailto:etc,etc ??? I would prefer a hyperlink instead of the mailto because then it reveals the person's e-mail address.

I know you could just hover over it or click on the hyperlink to find out the e-mail, but I'm just asking for the purpose of printing. I don't want my e-mail address shown in a long stream of E-mail send's and replies between a friend when I print it.

If there is a setting in Outlook to turn this off, please let me know, I fooled around with everything and I cant get it to work.

What is the best way backing up my pst files in a different device than HDD (like CD or DVD) and after that read (only) those pst' s without copy the file again.

A:Backup *.pst files from MS Outlook 2000

Hi atg72,

It's the same for any files to be backed up.

To backup onto CD or DVD you must have a CD or DVD writer. Software wise later versions of Windows have in-built writing capability but I find it's better with other s/w such as Nero which doesn't need to save to temp first and can cram more onto a CD/DVD.

Once on CD or DVD it is Read Only so you won't be able to change the data.

Just burn your .pst file but beware there are problems using it in anything other than the same version of Outlook that created it.

Just a quick question,
I have exported my email at work (Outlook 2003) to a pst file. Then I have imported it in my Outlook (on home PC) using 2003. All is ok but notice I don't have the "Sent" folder? Does not really matter as I cleaned it all out prior to the export. Surely this is not the reason i.e nothing in it? Is this a 2003 feature!? I am sure when using 2000/XP the "Sent" folder was exported as well. (yes I included all sub folders)

A:Importing PST files (Outlook 2003)

Am I right in thinking that you clicked the ďSentĒ file, exported it and copied/sent it to yourself? If so, all that you will have managed to do, I believe, is to send the contents.

Sub-folders are your invention and can be moved/sent but I donít think it is possible (without a great deal of difficulty) to move the folders that come as standard in Outlook.

When I receive an attached xls file (excel '97) and I try to open it from within Outlook 2000, Excel opens but no file is opened. If I go back into Outlook, there is a message that says the file, or one of its components could not be found. Word docs and any other attachments work just fine. Does anyone know what causes this and more importantly, how to fix it.

A:Outlook 2000 Contacts files, where and how to save

Search for the .wab files. This is the windows address book. It's usually in the Windows folder, but it may be best to do a search. There may be more than one. When you find them you should be able to put them on a floppy or burn to a disk if too large.

Once upgraded to XP, just replace the address book under her user name in the Documents and Settings folder. You may also need to do a search for the location.

I have a PST file that is 2 MB located on a network drive that was created in Outlook 2003, but when I try to open it in Outlook 2003 it says it's empty, no folders, just the deleted items folder that is empty as well.

I tried running scanpst.exe, it shows that there are 7 folders and no errors.

Any ideas?

A:2MB PST Files Opens but is Empty in Outlook 2003

2MB is considered small for a pst file

A brand new pst file with totally nothing inside it is about 300 KB. so you have like 1.7 MB left. that would mean maybe 5 emails, a few appointments in the calendar, some entries in the contacts and a couple of tasks. so don't expect to find a lot in it.

Hi Lucky5tar
Create a new Profile in Outlook.
Then copy the original .nk2 file to the new Profile:
Or , rename the file and Outlook should create a new file, the file will rebuild as e-mails are created.
For example: filename.nk2 to filename.nk2.old
If the .nk2 file does not regenerate a new Profile should be created.
While not the solution, this may also be of interest:

Some of my users are having problems with PDF Files they are sending to clients. We are using Outlook 2003. We scan many documents into PDF files to send to clients. Even though the client has Adobe reader the attachment is converted to a win.dat file and they can't open it. This is a random problem. It doesn't seem to matter what program the receiver is using so I can't relate it to a incompatibility problem with Lotus or Corel.

Also is there a reliable program or method of finding duplicate emails in outlook 2003 in several folders and removing them or moving them to a separate folder ?

A:Three Outlook 2003 conatact files two are invalid

Outlook stores all of your details inside a .pst file. Have you tried simply deleting the 2 .pst files that you do not want and see if that fixes the problem?
The default location for the .pst files are:
C:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application
*You said you move your outlook files around, so they may or may not be in there respective locations.

I use my laptop when I am away for extended periods. Because I transfer PST files (export my Contacts from my desktop; import them into my laptop), I've ended up with duplicate Contact files. The problem is that Outlook doesn't recognize the primary contact list and I always have to open up secondary lists (to fill in email addresses). Although only one Contact file shows up in the folder list, I actually have two, and the second is the one that contains the valid contacts. How can I get back to a single Contact list, one that Outlook recognizes?

We use Outlook as a kind of CRM tool here at work and I attach files with reports or letters I've sent into the contact file. We also share the contact folder using the half-baked netfolders thing, my problem is that when I attach say a letter (word file) into the contact, by the time the contact has been updated a few times the attachemnts is duplicated many times. Once they get above 2mb, they won't send as that is the maximum size for an update and its getting to be quite a problem.

It doesn't happen with every contact but, they ones that it does happen to they get many hundreds of copies of attachments very quickly, in less than a working day for example.

Has anyone experienced this before and if so, how did you sort it out?

When I tried to save them Outlook "locked up" and I had to go to Task Manager to shut it down. After uninstalling the latest security updates, Outlook performed normally. I tried it again and the same problem occurred. As long as the new security updates were not installed, Outlook works fine.

I purchased a new Notebook with Office 2007 installed and copied over my Outlook 2000 pst file. I also had manually created folders for filing important emails. Mine were sub folders within the Inbox folder. Everything copied over, but I could not see the manual folders at first until I double clicked the Inbox folder in the side panel and then they spilled out. I would look for them in that panel and double click anything there starting with Inbox, Sent etc. Also try doing a search for any subject or address of an email you may have saved.

When copying over the pst file I think everything is copied. Appears you did not just copy contacts for example, but the complete pst file. I think the folders are there as Sub Folders, just hidden within one of the main folders such as Inbox.

Hello everyone (And sorry for such a long thread title!)

One of the elderly gentleman where I work, has been given a Dell laptop by his Son that's running W7 64bit.

He has a copy of Office 2000 that he would like to install on this machine, and use the bundled Outlook from it as his default e-mail client. The only problem is, the current desktop PC he's using, is running Windows XP (unsure which version) and he's got Outlook Express as his e-mail viewing software on there at the moment.

Can the profile (sorry if that's the wrong term) from XP's Outlook Express be "ported" into the Outlook from Office 2000, whilst all of this is running on W7 64bit?

Many, many thanks in advance

Office 2000 is not supported on Windows 7, and is insecure and past it's lifetime support. That said, there may be workarounds to get it to work on 7, but that's probably more difficult then your original question. I'd think your friend would need a newer version, then revisit can it be done For instance:

Import messages into Windows Mail from Outlook Express

Import your messages or account from Outlook Express to Outlook - Outlook -

Trying to use Office 2000 would not be at all advisable.

I had Outlook 2003 autocomplete on this Windows Xp pc for years and grew dependent on it. It was there for me every day regardless of how often I opened and closed Outlook.

My hard drive crashed and Outlook 2003 was re-installed. Ever since then, every time I close Outlook, it "loses" all my autocomplete names. I checked my Outlooks settings, it's set on--I knew it was because I get them for the current session of Outlook only.

I went to the Microsoft site and it suggested that I had a corrupt *.nk2 file. Following a link on this site, I did find my .nk2 file and renamed it (as instructed on the Microsoft site), but still no luck.

What else can I do to keep all my autocomplete names from day to day?

I'm using Outlook 2003 SP2 in a standalone configuration with Win XP Professional SP2.

When I click on the Inbox item on the Outlook Today screen (not referring here to the file list at the left of the screen) I get the following message:

"Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Office Outlook could not access the specified folder location."

I backed up my .pst (and archive) files, uninstalled Outlook, re-started Windows, and re-installed Outlook. The problem persisted.

I can click on Inbox in the file list on the left of the Outlook screen - works fine. The problem is more of an annoyance than a major problem, but I'm uneasy that something's not working proprerly - Outlook's too important to me for odd, unexplained things to be happening!

Most of my users are on Outlook 2003, but some are on Outlook 2007. When a 2007 user uses the scheduling assistant to try and set a meeting, the message appears No Information. No free/busy information could be retrieved.

Note: a 2003 user can see the other 2003 user's schedule.

Is this something that needs to be set at the Exchange level? How do I resolve?

All users are on Windows XP SP2

i run outlook 2003 on windows xp. Send and receive does not start immediately when I open outlook, as it used to do. How can I fix this???? it is very annoying.

thanks in advance,

A:Outlook 2003 send and receive does not start up when outlook is opened

Usually, it would not do so immediately, but rather on a schedule per your settings.
To get email upon startup, just click send/recv to get the first downloads for the day.

Hi everyone,

At work we have outlook 2003 and I cannot upgrade that computer, at home I have recently upgraded to outlook 2007 but it left me with a little problem.

I use tasks to delegate jobs out to my team and I have it set up so categories are in fact their names. I used to send task requests with the name of the employee in the category section and when it arrived in the work inbox someone would accept the task and it would immediately go into that particular employees task category.

Now I have 2007 Outlook and although I have set categories up as they used to be (employee names) the task request gets accepted (at work) and instead of going under the employee name it goes into it's own category with no specific category.

Can anyone tell me (short of going back to outlook 2003) how to solve this issue?

I m a Hotmail Plus is that the right term user so I m paying for expanded service It s been fine for nearly a year now but recently my connection Bus.

Edition) - NOT Outlook Express connecting sometimes not Now I can t connect at all and I get the following errors Task Hotmail Folder Inbox Synchronizing headers reported error x CCC D The server could not be found Task Hotmail Folder Inbox Synchronizing headers reported error x CCC A timeout occurred while communicating with the server I did some trial and error work and realized that the problem is with the URL I m using http services msn com svcs hotmail httpmail asp This address must be incorrect because when I put in quot http www hotmail com quot instead it allowed me to get through but only once That means that the issue is not with my Outlook Is there another address and is anyone else having issues with the above address What else could be wrong nbsp

A:Hotmail and Outlook 2003 (Small Bus. Edition) - NOT Outlook Express

This thread looks pretty old but nobody responded so....Hotmail to Outlook 2003 or above now has a "connector" that you need to download in order for Hotmail and Outlook to sync correctly. Here's the download location for Office Outlook Connector:
Good luck.

A:Outlook 2003 Will Not Import Outlook Express folders, mail, anything

They are written in two different formats that are uncompatible. The Oulook Express has a file sytem totally unique to it.

I had the same problem about 6 weeks ago going from XP to Win7.
I had to transfer address book to notepad and put it into Outlook one at a time. The old mail sits in the old PC.
I have heard you can transfer the OE mail files over to Windows mail or gmail etc. Then transfer files from the new mail server to Outlook.
File system is changed over with the mail transfer- I haven't tried it though.

I did a Google and found this. I didn't find this page six weeks ago.

A couple of days ago when booting up my computer informed me it could not load my profile (XP proffessional) so was creating a temporary profile for me. I found a post about recovering lost profiles and followed the instructions (create new profile copy of local settings from my old to my new profile). Time to get my e-mal back. I have followed the instructions for recovering Outlook Express files (*dbx) but they won't import into Outlook 2003.

Any thoughts?


A:Solved: Recovering Outlook 2003 files from corupt profile

OK, figured it out myself but will post for anyone else who runs in the same problem.

1st make sure you have set your windows explorer to view system files and hidden files

1. go to old profile/application data/ mircrosoft/ outlook and copy the Outlook data file (this is a .pst file)
2. paste this on the desktop of your new profile
3. Open Outlook go to File->import export
4. Select: Import from another program or file click next
5. Scroll down to: Personal Folder file (.pst) click next
6. Browse to select file location of Outllok data file, select do not import duplicates
7. make sure you select checkbox for "include subfolders" and import items into the same folder in "Personal Folders"
8. click Finish

This imported all my e-mails, contacts, calenders but did not import my e-mail rules. No bigie, I can recreate the rules easily
