Default Recover OL 2003 contacts after xp profile corruption


My administrator profile on xp recently corrupted. (It was the only user profile) Windows created a temporary replacement by default.

There was no other disk problems or data loss I am aware of.

I created a new profile without any problems. When it seemed I could access all documents, etc, I deleted the temporary profile.

Now upon opening outlook, it wants to configure email, and contacts are missing - probaby just because it thinks this is a new user.

How can I locate and associate the existing contacts with this new outlook profile?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Send a message via MSN to fubbleduck

Office Outlook *.PST (email, calendar, tasks, contacts etc)

<drive>:\Documents and Settings\<user name ( which would be the old one)>\local settings\application data\Microsoft\Outlook

Copy the pst and then import it into outlook on the new user or paste it in from outlook under file data.
