(Music playing.) Hi, and welcome to Migrating from Microsoft Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007. I am David Rivers. Microsoft has incorporated some major changes and improvements in Outlook 2007, so if you are considering Migrating from Outlook 2003, this title will help to make your transition a smooth one. We will begin with a tour of the new and improved user interface, namely the Ribbon, where you will find easy and logical access to the various features and functions in Outlook 2007.

Then we will investigate the various methods for transferring all of your important information to your new installation of Outlook 2007. This means getting to know your .PST file, which contains your emails, contacts and calendar entries. You will learn how to find this file, how to back it up and restore it when necessary and you will learn how to export this file as well. Now, the way you perform many of the common commands in Microsoft Outlook 2003 may be performed in different ways in Outlook 2007. So, we will investigate the Office button for common file-related commands and we will work with the Quick Access toolbar to help create a more efficient work environment.

We will also work with the mini toolbars for even faster access to related functionality when selecting content in Outlook 2007. Lastly, we will examine how creating and using Macros can help to save you time and effort and we will examine the importance of the Startup folder and how you can change it to suit your needs. So, let's get started.
