Outlook doesn't include a method to backup profiles. There is the Windows XP File and Settings Wizard and the Office Save my Settings wizard, but each has limitations and introduces problems of their own. The Office Resource Kit includes the Custom Installation Wizard (CIW) you can use to create a custom installation. This is especially useful if you reformat or change machines often — all of your Office preferences are defined prior to installation. The CIW is available in the Office Resource ToolBox, available free online at ORK ToolBox.
