Outlook2003 and 2007 using same mailbox

Recently I got a new laptop -HP Compaq nx6325. I partitioned the hard disk into three -C, E and F. I installed Windows XP SP2 in C and Windows Vista in E. Next was Office suite. I installed Office 2003 in C in the XP partition and Office 2007 in E in the Vista partition. I put the Outlook .PST file in F drive.

Now I can work in XP or Vista and use my mailbox without any problem. I am thrilled.

Be patient and be with me while I convert and upload the old content into the new Unicode format.
