Recently ran into a unusual problem. When attempting to export mail from Outlook 2010 to a .PST at the step where the location to place the file I hit the browse button and nothing happens. I then started Outlook in the "Safe Mode" same problem exists.

This PC is part of a dead domain (Server died) with Exchange mail in the Cache Mode. I need to export the mail to .PST. Anyone run into this before?

Was a group policy configured to prevent PST use or growth?

you should be manually specify the location such as c:\mypst.pst or a path that you know it will work.

1. No Group policy was in effect. I was able to use the export feature on 4 other Windows 7 PC with out any problems.

2. As for specifying the location, then why have a "Browse Button". There is something wrong on this particular copy of Outlook

Ended up removing and reinstalling Outlook 2010. Browse button during export to .PST steps now working.

Thank you for your inputs.
