We recently had a frew employees leave the company and I was asked to move their email from their exchange mailbox to a PST file on another server to conserve spave in the Exchange db and on the main server. Also while logged in as one of the ex-employees, I added myself as a co-contributor of the account so I could access it.

Today I logged and tried opening it in Outlook, and it said I didn;t have security to open it. How do I reset security on a PST file created in Outlook 2003?

If the file is just a regular PST file you should be able to go to the properties of the file and take ownership of it. This should allow you to have full controll and open the file normally.
