It is very easy to open an outlook archive. Go to File|Open in the Outlook menu and chosse personal folders (*.pst). In the open dialog locate the archive file and press ok. You'll get a new 'personal folder' in your folder list (switch on folder list to see it...). That's all.

To get rid of this additional folder right-click on it and choose close 'personal folder'.

Lischke's, is this for Outlook 97? I had my client go through this - I have a funny feeling you may be confused with Outlook 98 of which this procedure indicates. Please advise.

Ooops, sorry for that. Please reject my answer. Yes I was writing about Outlook98. I should have read your question carefully.

This is a bit cheeky really.

Lischke has done all the hard work.  Outlook 98 is very similar to Outlook 97.

I think the hardest thing will be finding the archived stuff that used to exist in Outlook97.  Outlook 'autoarchives' stuff periodically and deletes it from the main archive.  If you have lost the archive file then you can't get the stuff back.

Anyway,

1.  Click on the File menu.
2.  Select Import and Export
3.  The you need to locate the backup.pst file using the browse button. (It defaults to be called backup.pst but it may have been called something else) ask your client what he called it and where (in the directories) he saved it.
4.  Once located click on 'do not import duplicates'
5.  Click finish.

Hey presto!  Done.
