Outlook personal settings

Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003 on Windows XP, SP2

Is there any way to export out the personal settings that one can have in Outlook 2003 so that if you log into another PC, you can simply import in the settings and have your Outlook configured the way you like, also with the shortcuts and folder setup that you normally have. Settings such as the preview pane is at the bottom, the default reminder time set to 10 minutes, a shortcut history full of various Public folder links, etc.

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: Just found the answer online...

Backing Up Your Settings and Preferences
Here's how to make a backup file of your Office 2003 settings and preferences if you are going to rebuild your computer or work from another computer. To back up your preferences and settings, do the following:

From the Windows XP Start Menu, select Programs:Microsoft Office:Microsoft Office Tools:Microsoft Office Save My Settings Wizard.

Follow the instructions provided by the wizard.

NOTE: The Save My Settings wizard backs up only your preferences and settings, such as your email account setup, display preferences and so on. It does not back up data such as email messages, your local address book, tasks, and so on.

To restore your settings, run the Save My Settings wizard again and select the option to restore the settings.
