Outlook 2003 transferred from XP to Windows 7

After 3 weeks of hell installing (not) Windows 7, purchasing 5 video cards to get a good compatible one, staying up til 6:00 am talking to various Far Eastern countries, etc - I finally have Windows7 up and running and all is going well. One problem: I guessed wrong on my user name and now I have Outlook 2003 with PFBackup installed (don't even know re compatibility) attempting to file backups in a non-existent folder with the former user/owner name as part of it. Is there a cure to this? Is this double name thing apt to cause problems in other areas? Can you buy Outlook 2007 to run alone without being part of Office? Does Windows 7 come with some other kind of good mail/calendar program which can be synced to phones? My computer is a Dell 530 with plenty of speed and memory (do you need more specifics?)
