Microsoft Exchange email to POP3 email

I have a computer that is using Outlook 2007.  The mail server is Microsoft Exchange.  The data files are .ost not .pst.  I want to transfer my exchange email to Outlook 2007 on another computer.  The pc to move from is running XP.  The pc to receive the files is running Vista.  I copied the files under C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook on the XP machine to Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook.  When I started Outlook, it would not recognize the .ost file.  I then did an export of the outlook on the pc that is using Microsoft Exchange to a .pst file.  I then did an import of that file on the Vista pc.  The problem is it looks like one of the folders may have a corruption because not all of the data was successfully imported.  One folder has over 13,000 messages in it and when it was imported, only 8600 came through.  A folder was created called Sync Issues and that has approximately 8000 error messages in it which may be the missing data but I can't tell.  When I try to export just that folder from the XP machine I get a message about corruption and suggests that I run scanpst to fix it.  I don't know where scanpst is and also if it will work since I don't have a pst file.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(I'm transferring the data because I have left the company and need to return the pc.  I no longer have access to the Exchange Server).
