Restore / Import Outlook e-mail
I'm assuming that you're coming from my export
Outlook e-mail article, and are ready to restore your Outlook contacts, e-mail messages, calendar items, etc back into your fresh install of Windows. (Or fresh re-install of Outlook, onto another computer, whatever.)
To start out, open Outlook. This barren, desolate view should be what you're presented with.
Now that we're in, let the importing begin. Click File->Import and Export and then select
Import from another program or file. Click next. On the next page scroll down most of the way towards the bottom, select
Personal Folder File (.pst) and click next. From there, you should now be able to select whatever file you saved your Outlook data to. Find where it's at, select it, and click next.
Select the root folder you want the items imported to. Personal Folders is default, and most likely what you had it in previously. Make sure
Include Subfolders and Import items into the same folder in: are checked. Click
Finish and you should be presented with a view like this:
Better, eh? All Contacts, Notes, Journal Entries, E-Mail messages, Calendar items, etc are all back exactly as we had them at the time of the backup.
