PST files were sent to my mail server then returned

Recently I installed Windows 7 Pro on my computer and instead of installing Microsoft Office 2007 I loaded Office 2010. When I uploaded my PST files into my Outlook email account, the following actions that happened have led to me having a personal folder with the same emails; the files were sent to my mail server and then returned them to my PC then to my email account. My mailbox points to my user name under Apps data. I have no clue as to why it took an eternity for it to transfer the PST files. Can someone please help me locate the personal folder as I don’t know its storage location, and also tell me why the PST files were sent to my mail server then returned because this is a mystery I am yet to unravel.

Hi Ross

Personnel folders file is used to store your inbox, outbox,calenders etc for backup purposes or to transfer it to another computer. When you load the .pst file into your outlook account it will immediately look to sync with the account in the mail server you are using, this could be an Exchange server or internet based mail server such as Yahoo or Hotmail. This may take some little time.

If you don't know the location of the .pst file then you can find it using search. Type .pst in filename and do a system wide search or search a folder where you believe your files could be.
