I put a password on my personal.pst folder on Outlook 2000 running on windows xp and can't figure out how to remove the password.  I didn't put the password on it through the Outlook program if that helps, I think i somehow password protected the actual folder.  Thanks!

Check for any third party tool in your computer which you might have used to set password..

Try www.lostpassword.com to see if it will recover/change the password.  Since you say you didn't actually password protect the pst file, I don't believe there will be any other option.
