How did you go about the transfer of the .PST file? If you exported it on
the old machine and imported it on the new one, you've probably corrupted
your Outlook profile, a known issue with Outlook's .PST import/export
function. If this is what you did, create a new Outlook profile on the new
machine, make a COPY of your old .PST file (with Outlook closed) on the old
machine, place this copy on the new machine in a folder where it will NOT
OVERWRITE any existing .PST files, then re-connect Outlook to it using
'File|Open|Outlook Data File'.
