Updating the pab in outlook 2016
One thing that has been missing from Microsoft Outlook is the ability to Import/Export settings.
You would imagine that when the developers develop a software product they would consider the ability to export (backup) configuration settings as one of the most basic features of the software. For the most part they do, but in case of Microsoft Outlook they never added that functionality, despite the fact that this is a feature that is desperately needed.
Luckily, I had to fix a corrupted profile on the same computer where I exported my settings so I didn’t have to reenter my passwords after importing my profile settings.
This blog is visited regularly by people from over 190 countries around the world.
One final note, when you use the registry to export and import your Outlook settings, it won’t include the passwords in your account settings because the passwords are not kept in the registry.
To import the profiles using the file, all you have to do is double-click the file and follow the instructions.
It doesn’t allow you to export Outlook settings, such as all the POP3 and IMAP accounts that you have configured.
Due to the nature of my business as an instructor and consultant, I manage several networks and for various reasons I have close to 50 accounts (mostly POP3) that I use in my Outlook profile.
NOTE: The name of the profile should match with the name of the profile that was used to export the registry data.
For example, if your Outlook profile was called Bill Gates, then the name of the profile where you want to import the Outlook profile data should also be called Bill Gates.
Over the years, I have asked Microsoft experts, fellow instructors, Outlook experts, and searched the Internet.
