Associate OST file with another Outlook profile
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have an Outlook 2007 user that has a large OST file (1.7GB).
Well he went out and bought a new laptop, which means I need to setup a new Outlook profile for him on his new laptop and resync 1.7GB of data.
I want to transfer his OST file from his old laptop to his new laptop (without resynching and having to download 1.7GB of data). Can it be done?
I understand the following:
The OST is tied to the Outlook profile and mailbox.
MIcrosoft has tied this security feature into these OST files and now my IT staff always has to download and resynch the data from the User's mailbox. I'm tired of this.
Anyway, I know I can solve the problem (by not using OST files), but that is not what I'm looking for.
I'm tired of downloading/synching large OST files everytime one of my executives changes hardware.
