backing up MS outlook emails and changing MS outlook default addy to my googlemail one.

I have always had problems doing this when I change ISPs and have been using their email suffix and also when I change computers. Can someone take me through an easy way of backing up so that I could import them to another account when I change over. So far what I have done is gone to AppData.MS.Outlook and have got a file called Office Data File, on the basis that it might contain my old emails and have saved that on a memory stick. Would I be able to retrieve emails in future by this method or doesn't this file contain what I want?

When I changed from Virgin to Sky a few years ago I opened a googlemail account which I have used. The only problem was that Sky gave me an email account and this was linked to MS Outlook rather than my googlemail one. So I often send emails and get them by return by the default Sky email. I know I can put the googlemail address in on the 'from' bar but I forget. How can I change the Sky default to the googlemail one in Outlook? thank you

I like that one Rawprawn - I wonder if it works on later versions as well?

I forgot to say that at the beginning of Sky subscription I brought my googlemail email into Sky's one so I do receive both Sky and Googlemail emails in Outlook but the default is Sky's address. I would like to change them over so sky filters into googlemail which is then the default address in outlook. I think the link that you gave me is for gmapping from scratch and to Outlook 2010 and I have 2003, if that makes a difference.
