Does an .ost file sync without outlook being open?

Hi all, quick question.

Does an outlook 2007 ost file sync regardless of if outlook is open or not? assuming there is a connection between the server and the workstation.

or does outlook need to be open for the ost file to sync?

No it dose not sync if outlook is not open. you need to open outlook to syne mail etc.

True, your OST is updated by Exchange through Outlook so it needs to be open.
