Upgrading Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2010 [FYI] | Posted at 7:58 AM
I couldn't really find a straight answer on this. I wanted to know if I had to backup my mail and whether it would get deleted if I upgraded to Office 2010.
The short answer: no! It migrates all your email and settings perfectly, didn't run into any problems!
To save you the trouble, make sure to get the correct version of Office 2010 (32-bit or 64-bit). You cannot upgrade to 64-bit from Office 2007 32-bit; the versions must match.
2010 is so much faster than 2007. I have at least two mailboxes that have between 1GB-2GB of size and 2007 would crawl opening them. 2010 starts up in 5 seconds with all the mail loaded; it's so much faster.
The best feature (so far) is the ability to reorder your mail accounts and favorites in the left pane. THANK GOD.
Now to check if I can combine internet calendars into one calendar, or at least get them to show up in the right-hand agenda list.
