Migrating XP's Outlook Express to Office 2000's Outlook on W7 64bit

Hello everyone (And sorry for such a long thread title!)

One of the elderly gentleman where I work, has been given a Dell laptop by his Son that's running Windows 7 64bit.

He has a copy of Office 2000 that he would like to install on this machine, and use the bundled Outlook from it as his default e-mail client. The only problem is, the current desktop PC he's using, is running Windows XP (unsure which version) and he's got Outlook Express as his e-mail viewing software on there at the moment.

Can the profile (sorry if that's the wrong term) from XP's Outlook Express be "ported" into the Outlook from Office 2000, whilst all of this is running on Windows 7 64bit?

Many thanks

Don't think you are going to be able to do this as Office 2000 (and thus Outlook 2000) are "not supported" in Windows 7. That does not mean it will not work, but some features will not, and there may be other issues that cause more frustration than anything else.

Office 2003 is compatible with W7.
