We had an issue with the exchange server (2010) and now all users can’t receive email in outlook 2010 but they can send mail. Email works fine via owa. There appears to be an issue with the user’s ost files.

If we recreate the ost file then all works just fine. Is there any way to do this for all of the users without having to go visit each computer?

To use the Inbox Repair tool:

  1. Select Start->Find (or Search)->Files and Folders (in Windows XP it’s All files and folders)
  2. In the "Named box" or "Search for files or folders names" enter Scanpst.exe
  3. Click Find Now or Search Now 
  4. Double-click Scanpst.exe
  5. Click the Browse button
  6. Navigate to Outlook.pst file location, as mentioned above.
  7. Click Start to scan the file and attempt the recovery.

Hi,maddoxpreston,

 

There are several methods to convert OST file to PST file.

First, Microsoft does not provide an official tool to do the conversion. However, if you can access the contents of the OST file in your Outlook, then you can perform the conversion manually, as follows:

1. Start Outlook. Make sure you can access all the contents in the OST file to be converted.
2. Create a new PST file.
3. Go to the OST file, select and copy all the contents to be converted with your mouse.
4. Go back to the new PST file, then paste all the contents into the PST file

That will do the conversion.

You can also perform the conversion by export the contents of the OST file to a PST file by following the instructions at:

http://office.micros...A102534110.aspx

Second, if you can access the Exchange server containing the account data for the OST file, then you can use Export-Mailbox command to export the data into a PST file, similar to convert your OST file into a PST file. Below is the article about doing that:

http://technet.micro...y/bb266964.aspx

Third, if you cannot access the OST file via Outlook, neither can you access the Exchange Server, then you can refer to Outlook MVPs' website discussing about this issue:

http://www.slipstick...sonal-file-pst/

Forth, there are many third-party OST to PST conversion tools you can try, below is a list of them:

Nearly all these tools provide a free trial so you can try first to see if a tool works before purchase it.


Good luck!
