Outlook Settings Transfer

Have a bunch of email accounts set up in Outlook and you want to transfer them? Save time by exporting your settings (minus passwords).

In Windows XP:
Open Regedit, go to and export:
[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxx\
Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging
Subsystem\Profiles\Outlook

Please note: You will need to change the numbers “xxxx” to match your destination machine in order for this to work right. A simple find and replace via your text editor can take care of things for you.

Take the exported registry file and copy it onto the pc you want the settings transfered to. You can run this file from anywhere on the system and it will update your registry.
