I am updating from office outlook 2000 to 2003. I am not comp. savy but
trying to do a safe update and need some advice. I backed up all office
files, contacts
e-mails etc to a PST. When I installed 2003 disk it asked me to remove 2000
first. So I asume the procedure I would do is to add/remove 2000 install
2003 and import back the PST. sounds easy

I thought since this was a update that it did everything Automactily
Should my 2000 PST back up restore to the 2003 office when installed ?
If I remove 2000 I have no disks to reinstall if things should go south
thats why I am trying to be very carefull.
Is there away I can have both copies on the hard drive?
or am I just freaking and do the unistall and reinsatll 2003
advice please??????

1) No you cannot have two versions of Outlook
2) With outlook closed copy all pst files to eg Documents
3) Uninstall Outlook /Ofice2k and reboot
4) Install Outlook /Office 2003
5) Outlook 2003 may connect to the Origonal outlook profile/data files, if
it does, close Outlook, use the mail applet in the Control Panel to add a
new data File, set that as default
6) Open Oulook, copy data from old set of personal folders to the new empty
set
