I thought that I would post here since I am not part of any "WindowsRumors" forums, or any other forums related to Windows. You all are my only hope! My company is forcing us to upgrade our laptops from Office 2003 to Office 2007 (on our Dell/XP laptops). However, when Office 2007 is installed, Outlook will no longer be available to us and we can't buy it and install it as our IT department will not allow it. This sucks!!! I have thousands of contacts in Outlook '03 (I work in sales) and I can't just suddenly throw away my contact database in favor of the contact management that the IT department is proposing (which is web-based, extremely slow and unintuitive, and not easily accessible since we have to VPN to get to it). I understand that they are trying to protect data from being transportable, and thus, possibly stolen. I am not here to quibble about that. So, is there an alternative to Outlook that will import my .PST file? I know the format is Microsoft proprietary, but Outlook is popular and someone has probably made a reliable converter. Most importantly, I want to also be able to import the "Notes" section, as this is the most important data. If it was just the contact data needing to be transferred, I would not need any assistance. I am thinking maybe just moving to something more open source so that I do not have this issue again. Any ideas on where I can take my data and rely on for years to come? Sorry if my post is too long and does not make any sense. Please let me know if I need to elaborate. Thank you in advance.
