Outlook .ost shanked

I have changed hosted Exchange 2007 server providers and like a dummy did not save my contacts, appts, notes, tasks and inbox to .pst files.  I have, however, a copy of my offline .ost file.

Every time I try to open Outlook 2007, it says the .ost file is not correct.  The messages reads "(file location" outlook.ost cannot be accessed because it has been configured for use with a different mailbox."

Any ideas how to pull the data out without having to buy a special programs for $200.00?

Thanks,
Matthew

Hi rakeshmiqlani,

Thanks for the feedback.  I installed the program, but, unfortunately, had the same error that several others indicated from your second response (with better screenshots).  I receive a message indicating:

"Internal Error (code=00000000E)"

I attempted to check out the author's website (www.pwdservice.com), but it does not exist any longer.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks,
Matthew

Did you try my solution at Date:06.22.2008 at 08:01AM PDT ?

Although there is no free OST to PST converter, there are some that are less than $300.

Hi war1,

I needed an immediate solution and purchased a software package that allowed me to convert the orphaned .ost file to a .pst file.

Thanks!!

mbooher,

This link would have converted your OST file at a reasonable price within a day. You would not needed to purchase a software that you needed only once.
