You can either use the old PST file -
(set up the profile in Outlook, close Outlook, search for outlook.pst and
ensure you're searching hidden/system folders, rename it old.pst, open
Outlook and point it at the "real" pst file, wherever you put it - might
want to rename it username.pst to be sure you know which file it is later)
Or, if you want to take advantage of the larger file size on PSTs in OL2003,
let it create the new PST file and import from the old one.
