How can we convert an .ost file to a .pst file in Outlook 2003?  Or, is there a way to "Open" the .ost file.

Outlook, in Cached Exchange Mode, uses the OST for a replica of what is online.  So if a user opens Outlook when disconnected from the server, they will see all their emails.  Once in Outlook, you can run an Export or Archive to create the PST.  If this OST is not for this user's mailbox, then use something like the above.
