This is more than the stem reflects. I have a cleint who has been swapping pst files between his home office and office computers for some time running Office 2003. He copies the pst file from one to a memory stick and then copies it to the other computer at the other location and back again. All has been runing well. He purchased a new computer and we installed Office from the same copiy that was on the old computer as it is going away. When I copied the the pst file on the new computer I got a message telling me it it was the wrong version of the folders. I thought the file may be corrupt but after a couple of tries with new copies I had the same problems. Okay so I deleted the pst file completely hoping Outlook would rebuild and I could try importing it. Of course Outlook doesn't rebuild the pst I found out. Next I uninstalled Outlook in hopes when it was reinstalled it would create a new pst. That doesn't work.
So here is where I stand. Outlook 2003 installed on a XP Pro PC at home office with no pst file. Want to get pst back and be able to swap pst files with computer in the office running XP Home and same copy of Office 2003.
Thanks experts for all you do for all of us who are bald from pulling hair out.
