    Switching from Office 2013 to Office 2016 & want to keep settings


    I'm planning to switch from Office 2013 to Office 2016 and I want to preserve my Outlook settings if possible. I have multiple email accounts and calendars setup and would like to avoid having to recreate all of that. TIA for your suggestions.

    Hi.
    I believe you want to backup your *.pst/*.ost file, then import it after the upgrade to O2016.
    Export or backup email, contacts, and calendar to an Outlook .pst file - Office Support

    There are some extra steps for calendars, etc. when using *.ost (IMAP).

    Thanks for the reply. I installed Office 2016 yesterday. I tried first without removing Office 2013, but the 2016 install failed. 2016 installed fine after I uninstalled 2013 and I was pleasantly surprised that all of my Outlook email settings were intact.
