Transfer Outlook Settings – Mailboxes, Account Names, Passwords
The only way to transfer all your Outlook settings such as your username, password, mailboxes and port number, is to take advantage of the information stored in a standard Outlook export file.
PST files contain all e-mail, contacts, calendar and tasks from your Microsoft Outlook account as well as the settings that are most often lost or misplaced when you are migrating data from one computer to another.
By using the Microsoft Outlook Import and Export wizard to create a PST export file on the first computer and then to create a PST import file on the second, target computer, you will effortlessly combine e-mails, calendar and contacts with the vital settings that are required to access your e-mail account.
See How to Backup Outlook 2010 for full details on exporting a PST file and importing it into Microsoft Outlook.
These methods will allow you to get to work on your new computer with access to all your Outlook e-mails available with minimum effort. However, note that if you work in a corporate environment and use Microsoft Exchange, when you login to a new computer for the first time your e-mails should be available to view without any transferring of data!
