You'll want to use (on the laptop)
then Export to a file.
Select Personal folder (PST) as your export type. Select the folder you want to export (you may want to move them into a subfolder to make sure you only get the ones you want)
save the file to your desktop, or some other place.
then if you want to password proctect the file you can do that on the next screen.
when you click ok, your done.
Now go to the desktop,
import a file,
pick Personal folder file (pst),
point to the file (which you can point to a CD if needed)
then you will be asked where you want the files to go.
You can eliminate the problem in the future (for incoming mail, anyway) by saving all messages on your mail server until you return to the office. Then you can just download them again to your office machine. But as I mentioned, your outgoing mail will still be missing.
Also, have you tried going the other way? I know that is not what you want to do, but it would tell you if it was Outlook 2002/2003 conflict or not.
So, another dead end. If there were a way to convert the Outlook 2003 .pst files on the laptop to Outlook 97-2002 .pst files, then the export-import would probably work. But, then, as I have been proved wrong many times when dealing with computers, that would be easy.
Microsoft must have a conversion tool somewhere, but I can't find it. HELP!
