Default Upgrading backwards !!!

Hi folks.



Well, after three weeks of daily struggle and frustration, I have finally had a gutful of Office 13/365. It has to go. I have wasted too much time and I want my 2007 back pronto. That "upgrade" was the worst decision I've made in a long time.

The question is, what's the least destructive way to do it?

The aspect I'm most concerned with is my store of email messages. Is there a way I can save them from from OL13 and retrieve them back into Outlook 2007? This is a very important consideration for me.

Could I possibly be so lucky that OL2007 will accept the PST files from OL13? With all the problems I've had that would be just too much to hope for.

Any help/hints much appreciated.

To revert to Office 2007, you'll have to uninstall Office 2013, then reinstall Office 2007. I don't know whether the converted PST file would be readable by Office 2007, though. Everything else should be OK, though. Even so, you should be making backups of all your important files.
