In the File Name box type the name that you want to use for the new .pst file, and then click OK. Click Finish

On the New Computer

On the File menu, click Import And Export. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next. Click Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next. Type the path and the name of the .pst file that you saved earlier, and then click Next. Select the folder that you entered above. To import everything in the .pst file, select the top of the hierarchy. Click Finish

Your new computer should now have the information that was on your old computer. Mahe sure everything looks correct before deleting any information from your old computer.
