Hi Sirs,

In our project we are set with this 60 days policy that every mail in the inbox will get deleted aftter attaining age of 60 days.

The prolem is we are unable to create pst because that is disabled.

I got an idea to convert the existing ost to pst. Is it possible?
If it is possible please let me know the procedure.

Any other options to save my mails for future use?

Thanks,
Venkat

Hi venkatspb,
you can try to export your .OST file to .PST.
Witch version of outlook do you have?

It is possible, but not easy.  Several suggestions here

So you need to use 3rd party utility, for example:
