You can open outlook > File > Import and export > Export to a file > Personal (pst).

This will save all emails, address book and calendar.

Easy Transfer (free download from microsoft.com) did the trick for me for my Vista to Win7 upgrade at home:

Keep a backup too (and do like Sweep suggested), just in case.

yep - Easy , (click next where appropriate) - Open outlook - File-Import and Export- Export to a file -personal Folder File(.pst)- select personal Folders ( top one) put a tick in the check box "include Sub Folders" - browse to a location you can find it ( say desktop) Click finish click OK.

This will export the complete Outlook email folders and address Book in one big .pst file. Put that file on a flash drive, or another PC for safe keeping.

To put it in a New install, install outlook - Import and export -Import from another file or program - Personal Folder File .pst - Browse to where ever you put it - and import it.

You will have to re-enter your email account details, but thats no biggie.

I tired that, but when I go to open it in the new outlook it only opens the old inbox and deleted file. Is there anyway to get the address book back?

But the PST file would contain the address book unless you were using a different contact list.

It sounds like you didn't export everything

You could just copy the outlook.pst file in your profile instead of exporting it using outlook...

You can also export addresses as a .csv file to excel
