Hi all.

I'm using office outlook sp3 and this is my problem. I recently brought home a pst file of all my emails from my old company (with their permission of course), but for some reason I can't get the file to open in outlook.

When I use the data file management option from the file menu and try to add a new date file I am not given any option to create a pst type file. All I get is one option to create a Business contact manager database.

There must be some sort of module missing in my installation of outlook as I haven't had problems doing this before. Any help?

Open Outlook
Go to File -> Open -> Outlook Data File
It should bring up a window that will allow you to locate the file, and pst should be the file type.
