Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes you can use your Outlook 2002 PST files with Outlook 2007.

The only differences between the old PST file format and the new PST file format is that the newer PST files are in Unicode and are capable of 20GB (per Microsoft). The old PST file format such as yours is only capable of 2GB.

    Microsoft makes sure their products are backwards compatible. Any decent software company should do this as well! I have heard rumors that Windows 7 (Vienna) has a little different outlook (no pun intended) on the whole compatibility thing...but again, just a rumor. Hope this helps! -Schmidtw
