Hello Experts

Need urgent help on the problem with Microsoft Exchange File (.ost). When opened outlook express 2007, all the emails were lost except the mails of last 2 weeks.

I have the ost file and want to open the same file so that i can retrieve emails from them.

Need help as how to open the ost file or convert the ost file to pst to view the old emails and attach the pst to the outlook.

Even as the emails are deleted check for them in "Recover Deleted Items" folder as they should be in there

There are 3rd party tools you would need to purchase or else configure the same EmailProfile as was for the OST and you should be able to open it

Simply place the OST in the default location and create an Outlook profile for the same mailbox once done ensure a new one isnt created if so .. close Outlook delete the OST and rename the existing one with the same name and re-open Outlook
