Note: ABF Outlook Backup enables you to backup one version of MS Outlook and restore to another. This feature is useful when moving the data to a newer (or an older) version of MS Outlook. But there are some issues concerning MS Outlook versions you should know before migrating using ABF Outlook Backup:
|1.||You can always move data from an older to a higher version of Outlook without limitations.|
|2.||You can move data from Outlook XP to Outlook 2000.|
|3.||You can move data from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2003, except IMAP accounts.|
|4.||You can not move data from Outlook 2003/2007 to Outlook 2000/XP|
