I had a OUTLOOK.OST file that was miss behaving. I copied the file to another location, and created a new one, since the email comes from our server, IMAP.
The new file is now working well, but I forgot to get the Contacts from that Account/OST.
I would like to temporarily replace the new file (2).OST, with the OLD .OST so I can export my address book, and import into the new OST.
Is that possible?
I can't ADD the OLD OST file because it says it was a different Mailbox. It shouldn't be, same user.

I can find the global addresses on the server, but I cant seem to find how to import them into the NEW Outlook OST.

Does any of this make sense?
