    Transition from Outlook/Office 2007


    Hello!

    I use an old Dell PC with Windows 7 Professional and Outlook 2007/Office 2007.

    I also have a current Apple laptop and use gmail and Outlook 365 for work (two different jobs - two different email systems). I am familiar with all three. I also use Office 365.

    I prefer my locally-based Outlook 2007 to browser-based gmail and Outlook 365. I like the way the 2007 platform is organized, the search capabilities and the functionality. I like the fact the email is local and not browser-based. I do not care about auto-internet synching on different devices for this particular email. I also like the Outlook 2007 calendar and contacts. My Outlook 2007 preference is not driven by privacy concerns (although i try to avoid gmail because I don't appreciate their scanning of our emails to serve up ads), I just appreciate the reliability and searchability of all emails locally on my PC.

    My PC is getting old and I will need to upgrade to a machine with Windows 10. Can anyone recommend an email client that might give me the feel of Outlook 2007? I think I would prefer a non-browser based email system, but I would be open to a browser-based system too.

    Or does anyone know if I could continue to use Outlook 2007 on the new Windows 10 machine?

    Frankly, i also like working locally on Office 2007 (instead of in Office 365 and the cloud).

    I know I sound like an old dog refusing to learn the new tricks but I feel I have used Gmail and 365 (for at least 5 years) and I just don't like either one as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    Lisa

    :)

    Upgrading Outlook 2007 to Outlook for Office 365

    Importing an Outlook 2007 PST file to Outlook 2016 which is the current Outlook / Office version used by O365 should go without issues. According to Microsoft, procedure to import 2007 PST to 2016 is the same than if importing 2010 and 2013 PST files:

    However, there shouldn't be any reason to import it. If you uninstall Office 2007 from Settings > Apps or Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features, the PST file is left in the system, only Office programs being uninstalled. Do not manually delete any Office folders after uninstall has finished!

    A restart is recommended after uninstalling Office.

    When you then install Office 2016 (O365) and launch Outlook 2016 first time, it should pick up the previous PST files automatically.

    Of course, as in computing you need to always be prepared for unwanted and surprising outcome, I would do the version upgrade like this:
    • Backup (copy) your PST files to a safe location or export all mail folders to a new PST file, for instance creating a folder Outlook_Export in your users folder and using it as backup location.
    • Uninstall Office 2007, restart.
    • Install Office 2016, launch Outlook 2016.
    That's it. Outlook 2016 should find your PST files and all your mail items should be there. The exporting was done just to be sure; if for any reason Outlook 2016 does not show your emails, you can import the backed up PST files manually.
