    You cannot do this directly in outlook.  There are several tools available to convert OSTs to PSTs, but I have never had good luck with any of them working 100%.

    OST file is associated with a particular mailbox and it can not ne opened when the exchange server is not available, to do so it have to be converted into pst file. Unfortunately Outlook has no nbuilt utility to convert ost file to pst file, but there are third party convert ost to pst tools are available that can convert ost to pst, and you can import the resulting PST file in Outlook.
