My PST file (35 meg) is corrupt.  Outlook does not recognize it as a valid .PST file.  I have been through the standard compliment of "fixes" through my corporate help desk but to no avail.  Suggestions?

Have you run the Inbox Repair Tool?
It is part of the system tools.

Sorry man, been there...  Looked everywhere!  Starting over for me was much quicker/important time wise, than pondering on a solution that looked non-existant for me...

Like all the comments from above, no solution.  You may be able to comtact your server or ISp and see if they still have copies of your emails.  Local servers probably do and your ISP may as well... You never know.

I found out there was a selection in tools/options that had created an archive.pst file.  Unfortunately it only was archiving my sent mail.  I recovered at least that portion of what I was missing.  This option was set when my computer was originally set up.  I have now set all of my folders to archive.  Nobody that responded considered this possibility.

Have to tried  the Oversized PST Recovery utility?  You will have to do a google search to find it. The exe is called pst2gb.exe

Hope this helps
