I was wondering how i would go about finding how to do these two specific questions.  I am currently upgrading and need to know how to do these two things.

1. Inventory your Outlook configuration to identify any attached local PST files that will need to be reattached after migration

2. Clear out old offline mail cache (OST file).

How do i find out if i have any attached PST files? Where do i look? And how do i clear out old offline mail cache?

Thank you ee!!

You don't mention what version of Outlook, but in short, go to the Account Settings and look at Data Files to see what PST files you may have loaded and where they are.

For the OST, you can just delete it and it rebuilds itself.  If you are really paranoid about it, rename it instead of deleting.  It's located in %localappdata%\Microsoft\Outlook

(%localappdata% is an environment variable that acts as a shortcut to the path - it's NORMALLY c:\users\<username>\appdata\local on a Vista and later machine.  In XP, replace users with Documents and Settings.
