Steps for transferring your Saved email IDs in Outlook from one system to another

If you have configured Outlook on your new system. Suddenly, while typing the mails you realize that none of the suggestions of E-mail ID appears in your Outlook. This is because the E-mail IDs were stored locally in Outlook on your previous system.

Relax,  you can still recover all the email suggestions on your new system. Follow the below steps to do the same - 

Step 1: Export the AutoComplete mailbox message

  1. Exit Outlook.

  2. Download and install MFCMAPI from https://github.com/stephenegriffin/mfcmapi

  3. Run mfcmapi.exe.

  4. On the Session menu, click Logon.

  5. If you are prompted for a profile, select the desired profile name, and then click OK.

  6. In the top pane, locate the line that corresponds to your mailbox, and then double-click it.

  7. In the left-side navigation pane, expand Root Container, and then expand Top of Information Store or IPM_SUBTREE.

  8. Right-click the Inbox folder, and then click Open Associated Content Table. This action opens a new MFCMAPI window that contains various properties.

  9. Under the Subject column, right-click the item that has the subject IPM.Configuration.Autocomplete, and then click Export Message. This action opens the Save Message To File window.

  10. In the drop-down list, select MSG file (UNICODE), and then click OK.
