I moved to another company, and I took my email archive  file with me.  But I can't open that file in outlook in my new company, as I don't have the permissions.

How can I change this ??

Thanks,

Check the file properties of the pst file.  If it's read-only, that's the problem.  Remove that attribute and you should be able to get in.

This frequently happens if you save your pst to a CDROM.  You'll need to copy it to the hard drive to remove the read-only attribute.
