troubleshooting Question

We had a PDC crash here. All client PCs had to be switched to a new domain. This was done in a hurry, and local outlook data was not backed up.

Now there are many 'orphaned' client accounts under the old domain name.   The data should still be there.  In particular,  many users created folders under sent or inbox in outlook.    
HOW DO I RECOVER THESE CUSTOM OUTLOOK FOLDERS AND GET THEM INTO GMAL?  For outlook 2010 and 2016.   I've looked for PST files, but these seem to be often empty - 256k data.    Have you heard of this type of problem before?   that is the old domain accounts still exist on each PC.   Another problem, I need to get contact data out of the old outlook accounts.  This data is often NOT in the address book, but comes out of the "TO" button when you start to type the address,  it fills in the rest of the address.   Users love this feature,  BUT WHERE IS THE DATA KEPT??!   What is the default name and location for all the local outlook data?   and esp.  'To' button contact data?    Seen the Gremlins movie?  I feel I'm facing death via a thousand pin pricks.
