Default Outlook question

Hey all I have a quick question about outlook. I recently backed up an outlook file on a computer of mine (the .pst file). So I forgot about the file for awhile started remaking my outlook again. Now I want to import all those messages I had from the backed up file. Is there any way to do that without overwrite (and erasing) the current file I have now? I guess what I'm asking is there a way to combine .pst files. Thanks

Send a message via AIM to jcortes

file > import export > import from another program or file > personal file folder > do not import duplicates

that will combine them and stop duplicates from being produced.
