Importing into Oulook beta

Had backup installed on outlook 2003.
This transferred to Outlook Beta fine when I transferred.
Used it to back-up all Outlook files.

Have just re-formatted.
1. Can't install Outlook Backup from Microsoft site. - it says that Outlook 
isn't found on my computer.
2. If I try to import the .PST file, (not using Backup) it locks up and 
after that, the cursor disappears behind Outlook window. Only redemable 
using system restore.

I want to get my folders, mail  and settings back.
Any ideas?

Never import from or export to a PST unless you LIKE losing information. 
There's simply is no need.  Open the PST in OUtlook with FIle>Open>Outlook 
Data File.

User imports timesheet to tasks: Does this get updated immediately
In 2007, when a teammember updates the PWA timesheet with time for various tasks and submits it to the pm, would he have to wait for his timesheet manager to approve the time before he can import the timesheet to update his Task progress? In some cases, I am not seeing any updates show up even after PM approval. Please advise. If you are using the Project Server timesheet system, the submittals and approvals for these are independent.

Hi, I have an issue when trying to import into pick list fields from a list that has some blank values. The conversion process in the import wizard forces you to make a selection from the pick list. The only ways I can think around this are: 1. Add an option to the pick list called Null. Then during the conversion process convert the blank field to null. I could then use the advanced find to pull up the relevant records and use a manual workflow rule to clear the contents of the field. However, the big issue with this is that in the advanced find search results you can only apply the manual...
