  5. Select "Outlook Data File (.pst)" and click on Next.

    Import PST File

  6. Browse to the location of the .pst file and then click on Next after selecting the option you prefer in regards to how Outlook should deal with any entries that duplicate existing entries in your contact list. The options are as follows:
    • Replace duplicates with items imported
    • Allow duplicates to be created
    • Do not import duplicates

  7. At the next step, you can select the folder to import from. You can also decide whether you wish to import any subfolders from the imported file; the default value is to include subfolders. You can also choose from the following 2 options:
    • Import items into the current folder
    • Import items into the same folder in

    Select Outlook folder for import

    For contacts, you may want to import them into the Contacts folder in Outlook, so can leave "Import items into the same folder in" selected for the appropriate email account.

  8. Click on Finish to complete the process.

For creating a contacts list PST file from the prior version of the application which can be imported into Outlook 2013, see Exporting contacts from Outlook 2010.

Local host name is not qualified

After updating /etc/aliases on a CentOS 7 system that uses sendmail for transmitting email by adding a new alias, I ran newalises. When I did so, it took a fair amount of time for the command to complete and when it did I saw the error message below:

[root@moonpoint ~]# newaliases
WARNING: local host name (moonpoint) is not qualified; see cf/README: WHO AM I?
/etc/aliases: 360 aliases, longest 69 bytes, 6301 bytes total
[root@moonpoint ~]#

The referenced "cf/README" file is at /usr/share/sendmail-cf/README .

I had also noticed that when I entered the mailq command to see what messages were queued for transmission it took a long time to see the results. And whenever I sent email from the system with the email client Alpine, it was taking a long time for email messages to be transmitted.
