Connect to Exchange

I have a machine with outlook that is not networked (well can be), and in our organisation a mailbox is associated with their windows user. When we log in as administrator onto the machine (not the domain), it still tries to connect to exchange server even though it cant as their is not associated mailbox with that user account and it isnt connected online. Is there anyway I can bypass the attempted connection to the server and just use outlook for mounting old historic PST archives? If so how?

if you go to control panel, mail accounts you can remove the user or mailbox assosiated..depending on which suits your needs the most...then you can open the .pst file from outlook

or allow outlook to work offline...think its in 'file'...then when it loads, probably wont load anything..go to file .. new...outlook data file...and load the .pst
