Outlook 2003 duplicate on another computer.

I've used a Palm Pilot forever and am thinking about buying an iPod Touch so I wanted to import all my data into Outlook so I could sync it to the Touch.

Main machine working great but on my other computer I can get Contacts, Notes and Calendar but can't get the address book to recognize my Contacts.

Went to Contacts/Properties and checked "Show this folder as an e-mail address book but get an error message.

What I'd really like to know is if there is a way to clone anther computer exactly. Including all the "Option" tweaks, colors...etc

Any suggestions?

"The address list could not be displayed. the contacts folder associatedWith this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions. For information on how to remove this folder from the Outlook address book, see Microsoft Office Outlook help.

Thinking about un-installing completely on the second machine and starting over.

Found the following.

I searched for the error message you "made" me focus on.

Got it. At least the Address book part.


Still would like to know if there's a way to make a perfect copy of Outlook on another computer with tweaks and all.

Thanks for the post.

Here's the rest of the solution http://support.microsoft.com/kb/312978

Backup your settings using the Save My Settings Wizard in Microsoft Office Tools (on the Start Menu). It creates a .OPS file which you can restore from on the target machine. It basically saves all your settings except server passwords, so make note of them. The .PST file contains your email, contacts, calendar and tasks.
