    Outlook 2016 Export Account Settings?


    I've just done a clean install of Windows 10 on another PC; I've also installed Office 2016.

    After all the fuss created with previous version of Outlook, I can't believe that Outlook 2016 still doesn't have an option to Export Account Settings. Has anyone got a way to do this?

    Hello Nigel,

    When you open the File menu in Outlook 2016 you should get an option to export:

    Does this provide a way to do what you want?

    Mine saves to Documents > Outlook files > xxx.pst by default. It will import back from that location automatically on a clean install too. My rules.rwz file is saved there too and gets used automatically too.

    Ok, I'm with you now. It would be nice if there was a one click method of doing that. I always end up doing it manually and it will eventually ask for the location of the PST file. If I remembered to change my Documents folder location it finds the one in the outlook files folder. Then all my inbox folders etc get imported. You can't do much of anything though without setting up at least one account in Outlook. It would be nice if you could link it to your Microsoft ID or something.
