Default Outlook 2000; How do I back up all data?

A friend of mine has Outlook 2000 (for wndows 2000) installed on his XP machine and it has worked for over 4 years now. Now it wont start at all. He has attempted to reinstall the software over the existing. That did not work.

Today I thouht I'd go over there and attemp to back up all his emails, sent and inbox. How do I back it up when the program wont start? With in windows explorer, which folders do I backup?

2nd question pertaining to this.. I wanted to install outlook 2003 (for xp), will I be able to import those folders into 2003 that I backed up from outlook 2000?

Find the .pst files and save them...easiest way to find them will be to search (either with Total Commander from Total Commander - home or using Windows Search).

You should be able to import, yes.
