Importing Calendar/Contacts from Outlook 2003 to 2013

Posted on Dec 31, 2013 7:07 AM, Office Category - All Threads | answers.microsoft.com

I am migrating an XP/Office 2003 user to Windows 7/Office 2013. Both are connected to an IMAP mail host.


I have exported the Personal Folders\Contacts and \Calendar as 2 separate .pst files from the old computer. These have then been transferred to the My Documents\Outlook files on the new computer.


When I import the data into Outlook 2013 I have tried importing into the current folder Calendar(This computer only) and Contacts(This computer only) in both cases no data appears (no Appointments, no Contacts are shown) although in the case of the Calendar it then generates reminders.


If I use the second option (Import items into the same folder in: IMAP Profile Name) it creates a secondary Calendar or Contacts list separate from the (This computer only) folder.


Why when I use the current folder option does it not create Appointments or Contacts in the local IMAP profile folders. Incidentally when I then remove the data files using the Control Panel/Mail Utility the reminders remain in the profile even though the appointments were never actually there. Removing the subfolders in the Calendar and the Contacts list created during the import does not remove the data file reference in the Control Panel/Mail Utility.


How do I import the actual data into the Calendar(This computer only) and Contacts(This computer only) folders respectively. I know that if I have two separate stores end user is bound to question where to save the particular entries.
