Outlook Express to Outlook 2003

2 posts in this topic

I am looking to take the contents of Outlook Express (email, contacts, etc) and migrate it to Outlook 2003. I am using Windows XPsp2 and was using the free Outlook Express but now I purchased Office 2003 and want to use Outlook 2003. I would like to script this process since in the future I will need to perform this procedure on about 2300 other PCs. These PCs are switching from a Windows XP to a different PC running Windows XPsp2. I know I need to copy the dbx files over to the new PC within Outlook Express then export them to Outlook 2003 thus the reason for the script. Has anyone ever done this or have a AutoIt script handy they could provide? Any and all assistance is appreciated.
