Is there a way in VB or VBA to open a .pst file from a given location then read all the emails and folders that are in that file just like you would if it were already in Outlook I have about 400 .pst files that need to be read through they are all archived files and I need to read each and every email that is in them.  I also need to read all information about each email i.e. Subject, body, SentOn ...

Thank you

I think you can't read a .pst file directly... you would have to load them in Outlook and then use the Outlook automation DLL to read the info you need...
