    copy outlook settings, accounts, contacts etc from 2010 to 2016/2019


    Hi folks
    Easy way to copy your whole kybosh from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2016/2019 on another computer.

    Simply using the export facility just copies the mail items - the reg method copies everything (except passwords which you will have to re-enter).

    (On the same computer you don't need to do anything - just install Office 2016/2019 BEFORE uninstalling Office 2010 - then you can uninstall Office 2010 although Office 2010 and Office 2019 at least will both run (Outlook won't run concurrently though whereas EXCEL etc will).

    Ms don't make this very user friendly though - and you will need to remember your passwords on your accounts. This also copies all the emails in entirety - IMAP no problem.

    so
    1) Copy from documents Outlook files folder to external device
    2) on New computer install Office 2016/2019 but don't open OUTLOOK.
    3) Open one of the products say EXCEL, accept license agreement and activate the product.
    4) check for any updates and apply - also add any language packs if you use Outlook in different languages.
    5) folders can be translated to desired language if you run the following from Win+R command : outlook.exe /resetfolders.
    6) on OLD computer start REGEDIT and copy following file to external device

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles

    7) on new computer copy outlook files folder to documents

    8) double click on the reg file you copied from the old computer

    9) you'll be asked to enter the passwords for each of the accounts

    10) job done --start outlook 2019 and all your accounts etc will be in place -- also avoids using those horrible simplified screens for manually setting up the accounts.

    Note this method also works for copying profiles of 2016/2019 to new computer

    In this case use registry file HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles

    If all else fails

    don't uninstall Office 2010 on old computer -- install Office 2019 on old computer BUT DON'T activate on old computer -- just copy the reg file (the 2019 one) after installing Office 2019. If you still want to use the old computer uninstall Office 2019 again.

    Now import that on to new computer

    Again job done

    Can't say if this works when transferring to Office 365 as I don't have it but I would assume that it does work though as people keep the same email accounts I assume.

    Why Ms make this such a hideous palava to copy profiles / accounts etc to a new machine --- next question please !!!!

    If totally hosed up - install both Outlook 2010 and 2019 on new computer -- copy the outlook 2010 profile to the new computer from the old one plus the outlook folder in documents.
    Don't activate office 2010. After copying the profile start up outlook 2019, enter passwords then unistall Office 2010.

    Cheers

  2. Configuring additional Contacts accounts in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 Pro

    In Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 Pro, I can add a Contacts Folder?/Address Book? by undertaking the following steps:

    1. Go to Start->Control Panel->Mail(32-bit)
    2. Select 'Show Profiles...' and double-click the correct profile for my system
    3. Select 'E-mail Accounts...'
    4. Under the 'E-mail' tab, select 'New...'
    5. Make sure that 'E-mail Account' is selected and hit 'Next >'
    6. Fill in the name, email address, and password for the given account and hit 'Next >'.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to configure the same profile in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 Pro.

    Any thoughts?

    Adjusting font size in Outlook folder list (2016/2019)


    Hi folks
    Is there a way to get this screen in Outlook 2016/2019.

    Here in Outlook 2010 you can easily adjust the font size and type in the folder list (navigation pane) and other things which makes it much more readable on a large monitor - sometimes default fonts are too tiny - especially when viewed on large screens !!

    I can't seem to get to similar screens in Outlook 2016/2019.
    In Some places you can't set size either - you just get choice of small, large, larger !!!!!!! definitely a retrograde step IMO.

    Cheers

    How to Synch. Outlook 2010 Mail & Contacts with Microsoft Account?


    I keep contact details in my Microsoft account (at Sign in to your Microsoft account). I've been using Outlook 2010 with the Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector and this used to synchronise my contacts fine.

    However, for a while now, I've noticed mail synchronisation errors and I've had to configure my Microsoft mail account to use the standard IMAP settings (not via the Hotmail connector).

    However, this method no longer synchronises my contacts. How do you configure the mail and contact settings in Outlook 2010 to synchronise both mail and contacts in Outlook 2010 with my Microsoft account?
